Dublin Tech Summit Goes Virtual

Over the last three years, Dublin Tech Summit has steadily grown into a leading tech conference with over 10,000 global attendees, throughout this time we have met some amazing companies from KeepAppy to Newsadoo and everything in between. This years event which was meant to be happening in April was already shaping up to be a world-class event to make DTS one of Europe’s most attended events. But as a result of Covid-19 this years event had to be postponed. Thankfully a new date and a new format has been decided for Ireland biggest tech event!

DTS Goes Virtual

Recently DTS officially announced a change to this years event, instead of rescheduling their event in the RDS they have decided to go online with Dublin Tech Summit Virtual which will take place on 14th October.

The event that has grown so much over the past 3 years which include sell-out live summits of over 10,000 attendees and a roster of globally renowned speakers including Werner Vogels, Commander Chris Hadfield, Sofie Lindblom, Gary Vaynerchuk and Amanda Gutterman amongst others. While it’s a shame that we can’t be there in person for the first year since it’s inception it is great to see that DTS will be bringing us a whole host of new speakers fo this snazzy new online event in October.

A New Normal?

With the way the world is right now, it’s hard to tell when and if events like this will be commonplace in the future. With the global landscape changing so much, virtual conferences are in demand and that means innovation is key.

Thank fook for technology we say, as DTS see the demand for a world-class virtual event offering unique content, inspired insight and respected voices. As a result, we are going to get a new one-day event with international speakers being set across two “stages” as well as one-to-one networking opportunities with influential thought-leaders, an active virtual exhibition hall and fully interactive options for engagement with both speakers and other attendees throughout the day.

The virtual technology aims to give us an unforgettable experience where we will get to engage with an exciting lineup of experts to discuss, debate, exchange knowledge and network effectively, all without the need to travel.

Still to Come

DTS Virtual is going to be an interesting experience and it’s only going to get more fascinating as we await the list of speakers, due to be released over the next few weeks. The upside of a virtual event is simple, the speakers can be anyone from anywhere so with travel issues out of the equation it’s going to be intriguing to see just who they can get a hold of.

While this year is going to be a virtual event, next years event is already in the pipeline. DTS Live event which will now take place on 20-21 April 2021.

How it’s going to work

On the day, attendees like ourselves will log into an online portal with credentials provided upon registration and enter the DTS Virtual lobby which is designed to have the look and feel of physical space. From there, attendees can visit the Virtual Auditorium, the Exhibition Hall, the Networking Lounge and the Information Desk, with unlimited access to all areas.

It’s going to be very very interesting to see how this is going to work, so watch this space and as we get more info we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
