DTS will welcome an international and diverse audience from countries across the globe at the two-day conference
Dublin, Ireland - 10 February 2017 - Dublin Tech Summit will welcome over 10,000 attendees to The CCD this Wednesday, 15 February and Thursday, 16 February. The first-year event has curated an impressive and diverse lineup including Gary Vaynerchuk, Jimmy Chamberlin, Cindy Gallop, Matthew Luhn and RoboThespian.
With 66% of attendees hailing from overseas, the two-day event is an opportunity to solidify Dublin’s position as the European Tech Capital and showcase all it has to offer to a global audience. The conference will provide a chance to showcase the infrastructure, culture and talented workforce of the city. DTS CEO, Noelle O’Reilly, said, “Dublin is such a fantastic city to do business in. We wanted to provide a unique event that showcases that, as well as give the tech community in Dublin a chance to meet and learn from each other.”
The conference has placed an emphasis on B2B networking and with over 46% of attendees being Director-level or higher from companies such as Google, Intel, Microsoft, PayPal, Accenture, Adobe, Facebook, HPE, Hubspot and Salesforce. Those looking to develop professional relationships will be in the right place. DTS has attempted to facilitate and simplify this networking via a DTS App, which attendees can download to enable them to reach out to each other ahead of the event, and an online meeting scheduling platform to enable meetups at the conference. Of the network-assisting technology, Noelle O’Reilly said, “DTS at its core is about simplicity. We wanted to make our attendees experience here as simple, straightforward and enjoyable as possible. Our app and meeting scheduling platform are designed to do just that and witnessing people connect online in the lead up to the event has been incredible for our team to see.”
eir Business is one of the founding partners of Dublin Tech Summit and commenting on the upcoming event Bill Archer, Managing Director, eir Business said, “At the core of what we do is a strong desire to continuously seek out tangible ways to support and foster innovation across all spectrums of business. Ireland has a strong international reputation in technology and it’s important that we continue to build on that reputation. DTS provides the perfect platform to attract global thought leaders and influencers and that is why eir Business is delighted to partner with the event as a Founding Partner. We want to connect global investors with new ventures, leaders, founders and influencers, and help build relationships across the two-day event. DTS has the potential to shape technology across the world and showcase Dublin as a global technology hub and we are genuinely excited to play an active part in that.”
While the DTS audience is certainly of a high-calibre this isn’t achieved by sacrificing diversity. The conference, in attempt to promote diversity in tech, provided over €400,000 worth of tickets to underrepresented groups in the industry such as women and students. Additionally, both women and students were enabled to apply right up until this week for a significantly discounted ticket. Ticket holders for the event are 48% female.
