Cork Business Association is our voice of the traders .  It is an excellent resource for any retailer in the city from a networking and business opportunity. Someone is always on hand to answer and support you.  Knowing and sharing knowledge with your peers and wining accolades nominated by your peers in the quarterly and business awards is a fantastic achievement for you and your business.  This has certainly been a fantastic marketing tool for our business and one where it was a honour to have been associated with the CBA as it raised our profile as a brand and company.

I have been involved with the Cork Business Association for over 4 years now. I find it a well run organisation that uses its resources to maximum effect. I believe all City Centre Businesses and traders should be involved, there is strength in numbers. Presently the CBA has a very active President and an effective CEO.  The organisation is efficient and punches well above its weight

Benefits of being a member are many, but amongst the most important ones are connectivity to what’s happening in the city, which comes about through regular meetings and exchanges of ideas and that feeling of camaraderie that membership brings.

Cork Business Association has opened a lot of doors for our business in Cork.  It provides a fantastic networking opportunity, their events are well-worth attending, they provide support whenever we need it, and the organisation gives easy access to key stakeholders in the city.  I’ve most certainly won business as a result of being a member.  Niamh Murphy, Director, Hopkins Communications.

Playing an active role in the CBA keeps me in touch with all the projects happening in city at the moment. The weekly newsletters provide a real insight into what is going on in the city. Winning the small/medium business award in 2011 gave us great publicity. It’s great to know that there is an organization there you can go to if you have any problems.       problems.
