AIB Merchant Services and Retail Excellence Ireland hosted a retail masterclass, with UK retail expert Matthew Brown and Ireland’s Top 100 Stores, in AIB Bank Centre on Thursday 15th August. Over 130 retailers from across the country attended the event. The briefing is part of the Retail Excellence Ireland Award series of which AIB Merchant Services is title sponsor.
Robert Doherty, Director of Product at AIB Merchant Services, kicked off the night welcoming all the retailers to AIB Bankcentre, whilst also gently reminding the audience of benefits of card payments.
Mary Grainger, Head of AIB Payment Products & Relationship Offices commented “The retail masterclass truly demonstrated that retail in Ireland is up there with the best in the world. We are really looking forward to the next phase of the REI Awards series and AIB Merchant Services involvement in this.”
AIB Merchant Services, Ireland’s largest payments solutions provider, will sponsor the awards this year after announcing a three-year partnership with Retail Excellence Ireland in February. The agreement sees AIB Merchant Services become the exclusive payments partner of the retail industry representative body and its members (comprising over 1,800 leading retail companies operating in the Irish market).
