On Thursday 1st February, following on from the highly successful Dublin Open exhibition in 2017, twenty-three BCFA member companies with invited guests took part in the first BCFA Networking Event in Dublin at the new NoLita bar in the very ‘buzzy’ central Dublin (http://nolita.ie/). The venue proved to be excellent for networking and we were given much of the first floor including the whiskey bar, which proved to be warm and welcoming. The impressive Italian food was of a very high standard and as usual in Dublin was provided in copious amounts.
As it was a first event in Dublin there was a higher than normal level of last minute guest changes but the quality of the guests who attended was very high, and members took full advantage to follow up on initial conversations held last year at the Dublin Open exhibition.
The feedback from attending members was that it was an excellent venue with a great atmosphere, and going forward the BCFA should look to make the Dublin Networking evening a key part of our events timetable.
