Toys4Engineers goes digital

T4E 2020 Digital

While the majority of Waterford Chamber's events have fallen victim to Covid-19, CEO Gerald Hurley says they refused to give up on Toys4Enginners, one of their most popular events.

“Toys4Engineers is now in its fourth year and has become the perfect platform to connect like-minded people from across Ireland and beyond in the area of engineering, be it in pharma, research, ICT, tech and so on.

“Ultimately the aim of the event is to showcase companies and encourage them to do business and the success of that has been noted with various contracts that were done over the past number of years.

“To date, the event has been held in WIT Arena, but in light of Covid-19, it has now moved to a digital platform and instead of one single day, it will run from October 6th to 8th via www.toys4engineers.ie. There was just no way we could let it go and we are delighted to have the full backing of Waterford City & County Council as our event partners. We enjoy putting it together too much and the ethos of the event is around innovation, so we challenged ourselves to embrace that and come up with a new format that would appeal to everyone. We have gathered some of the brightest minds in the country for our panel discussions and they will cover a broad spectrum of topics, from robotics and automation to pharma and agri-tech”.

There are four key elements to this year’s event, a digital expo, which is designed to showcase products and services through video. Then we have the conferences, which will be held daily and moderated by industry professionals and these are kindly supported by IDA Ireland, Cobotics Skillnet and Waterford Local Enterprise Office.

“Running concurrently and in association with IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland, there’s Meet the Buyer. This will be done in a private capacity and aims to connect indigenous companies and multi-nationals. Finally, we have our recruitment element, in partnership with Crystal Valley Tech, which is designed to promote Waterford and the South East as a great place to live, work and do business, with hundreds of live roles being advertised and private meetings being held between candidates and recruiters.”

All elements, except for the digital expo, are completely free. To showcase your products or services, we are offering you a digital platform to a target audience. This includes the filming and editing of your own video, which you can keep for further use and which will also feature on www.toys4engineers.ie for the year ahead, as well as social media promotion. It will also be shown each day of our online event.

Toys4Engineers is kindly supported by Waterford City & County Council, IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Engineering South East, Waterford Institute of Technology, Waterford Chamber Skillnet, Cobotics Skillnet, Waterford Local Enterprise Office and Metalman Engineering.

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years. It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience. Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face. We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
