Fostering Irish exporters in the southern region of Ireland


Southern Network Group

The Southern Network Group was set up to ensure that our members, located in the region have a regular platform to discuss COVID-19, Brexit and supply chain issues. The meetings strengthen the connection with our members, provide an opportunity for business networking and are a means to finding collaborative solutions to common challenges. The meetings directly contribute to our communications and public affairs work.

This close connection allows members to engage directly with the IEA to find and develop specific solutions to challenges facing our members on a day-to-day basis.

The meetings also:

  • provide a local focal point of contact to members
  • act as an advocate for the region
  • act as an advocate for local export needs and requirements
  • provide a local networking platform.

The Southern Network Group is chaired by Paula Tebay Plant Logistics Manager, Bausch & Lomb Ireland and held in partnership with our sponsors Rhenus LogisticsIrish Rail Iarnród Éireann and Fleet Magazine.

Below is the list of dates and times for our 2023 meetings:
