DUBLIN TECH SUMMIT THE FIRST DAY [ RANDOM IMAGES BY INFOMATIQUE ]
Thanks to the organisers for inviting me to attend the first Tech. Summit in the Convention Centre on the North Wall in Dublin Docklands.
The Dublin Tech Summit (DTS) is an international technology conference held in Dublin, Ireland. The first summit took place 15 and 16 February 2017, at the Convention Centre Dublin.
The organisers plan to run the event annually, and to attract more than 10,000 attendees as well as influential speakers, startups, exhibitors, sponsors and investors, covering eight main themes:
The Internet of things
Big data and analytics
DTS was the idea of Business and Finance magazine publisher Ian Hyland and former Accenture consultant Ben English.
Irish telecoms firm eir has shown strong support for the Dublin Tech Summit, establishing itself as a founding partner and lead sponsor.
According to the local media this event is one of many hoping to fill the void left by the controversial departure of the Web Summit to Lisbon, Portugal after 2016.
Based on the long lines of people waiting to register this morning it is most likely that the event attracted more than 10,000.
