Taking place this week, 30th – 31st October, The Dublin Web Summit is one of the world’s largest tech events.
Established in 2010, in its first year there were 450 attendees and this year, 2013 The Web Summit will welcome over 10,000 attendees from 97 countries – exceptionally impressive growth!
This year I’ll be participating in the event on what’s known as The Live Team – a dedicated team of people who will share news and views from the exciting line-up of top speakers from industries including; Enterprise, Ecommerce, Finance, Hardware, Social, Health, Mobile, Education and Gaming.

Apart from the list of super speakers and events, there are a couple of highlights worth a mention at this point;
- The NASDAQ Bell being rung in Ireland by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny for the very first time.
- Elon Musk taking part in a fireside chat on Thursday – likely to be one of the most popular events of The Summit.
- The Food Summit, in association with Good Food Ireland which will showcase some of Ireland’s fine foods.
- The 29 female speakers taking part from quite a diverse range of industries.
The event will be shared extensively through social media using the dedicated hashtag of #WebSummit – and in particular we do recommend twitter for extensive coverage of the event although it will be shared on other media also.
