17 Dec Christmas at The GEC…
GEC Christmas Decorations
GEC’s Gerry & Andy were busy at the end of November being our secret Christmas Elves and transforming the Centre once again into a Winter Wonderland.
What’s next? A full blown snow machine! ☺
GEC Christmas Market
Jenny from Edge Only came to us with the idea of a GEC Christmas Market last October and we went ‘gung-ho’ with helping her organise it!
We had 18 x exhibitors on December 9th which included GEC and Dublin BIC clients as well as local Dublin 8 businesses. (A full list can be found here)
We also had a visit from St Audoen’s Primary School who performed some beautiful Christmas carols for us.
Well done to all involved!
GEC Advent Calendar
Thanks to Digiwolf for organising our Christmas shopping for us with the initiation of the GEC Advent Calender which included lots of discounts and special offers…
just in time before Christmas!
GEC Charity Collections
We did two Charity collections this year; one in conjunction with Brú Hostel on Thomas Street and the other for the Dublin Women’s Refuge with Gilbert from ComputeNext Ltd in the format of the Charity MotorCycle Run.
Twp hundred bikers took part driving in condo with three very full vans of goodies to the Women Refuge Centre. All that was donated should do good for the women and kids not only over Christmas, but also right in to next year.
Thanks to you all for your kind donations which were much appreciated.
We also have to mention the Dublin City Santa Cycle which alot of GEC Clients took part in and a great evening was had by all!
The Startup Van’s Visit
The Startup Van came to visit during their run around Dublin City meeting the ‘12 Startups of Christmas‘. We were thrilled that they featured The GEC plus FOUR of our startups; HIE, Manley, Digiwolf & Ticketsolve. Check out their video here
GEC Christmas Party
Another successful year at the GEC and what better way to celebrate and award ourselves for all that hard work…than at the GEC Christmas Jumper Party.
Wishing you all an enjoyable break…see you in the New Year for 2017 at the #BestPlaceToGrow!
