April 6, 2016 (No Comments) by theSharpeUser

While Ireland is losing the jewel in its tech crown with the Web Summit moving to Lisbon there are still plenty of good tech events taking place up and down the country this year. Thanks to the success of the Web Summit and with so many of the world’s biggest tech companies based on our shores, Ireland has firmly put itself on the tech map. This year promises to be another busy one on the tech front with plenty to keep hardened tech heads and those with only a passing interest happy. No matter what part of the country you live in, there will be a tech event somewhere near you this year. In this column I will take a look at the top events taking place across the country in 2016.

Northern Ireland Science Festival. 18th -28th Feb.

This 11 day festival will take place over multiple venues across the north beginning on 18th Feb. Last year was its inaugural year so this festival is pretty new on the scene. This being said it attracted over 50,000 attendees, far surpassing expectations so it is sure to be very popular again this year. It is a blend of arts, entertainment and science and aims to showcase science in Northern Ireland and beyond. If you are anywhere near any of the events be sure to check them out.

Social Media Summit. The Helix, Dublin, 1st-2nd March.

This two day event is aimed more at businesses and decision makers but it has some world renowned speakers in the area of social media attending so I thought it worth a mention. The keynote speaker is Ted Rubin, an internationally renowned social media strategist. Other speakers include experts in every aspect of social media. For anyone with a keen interest in social media or looking to better use social media to connect with customers then is a must on the calendar. For more info go to http://www.socialmediasummit.ie/
