Laois entrepreneurs have a golden chance to find thousands of new customers, thanks to Laois County Council.

The local authority is inviting Laois companies to showcase their products in their tent at the National and World Ploughing Championships, held in Ratheniska, Laois, on September 18 to 22.

It will cost the companies next to nothing to set up their stalls, compared to the thousands it costs for a trading space at the world reknowned event.

The event will be attended by up to a quarter of a million visitors over the four days.

The council is particularly looking for people who make crafts, food or drink.

"Laois County Council is currently seeking expressions of interest from businesses located in Laois who are interested in being represented in the Laois County Council marquee at the National Ploughing Championships 2022.

"Laois County Council would like to hear from Laois companies who would like to showcase their products in the Laois marquee and we are particularly interested in local craft makers and artisan food/drink producers.

"Please note that it will only be possible to choose a limited number of companies due to the amount of space available."

They are charging a nominal contribution of €100.
