The third Going International Conference will take place on Wednesday 16th October 2013, here at the Fota Island Resort Hotel Cork.

The Going International Conference forms a vital part of the Global Economic Forum for Cork Rebel Week, the Cork Gathering flagship event that takes places from 14th to 20th October.

At the launch of the conference, Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney highlighted that these events are fundamental in bringing international entrepreneurs and leaders together and it was announced that confirmed keynote speakers so far for the conference would be Candace Johnson, one of Time magazine’s 50 most powerful businesswomen in Europe, and Julian Costley, co-founder of E*TRADE UK and former country manager at Reuters.

This event, like the Global Economic Forum on Thursday 17th October aims to attract international visitors by asking them to take part in discussions and debates, so that they can gain greater understanding of the economic renewal in Cork, and we here at Fota Island Resort look forward to welcoming all the delegates, speakers and attendees of this year’s Going International Conference to our Cork Conference Venue.
