Dublin Tech Summit returns to the capital this 18-19 April; held across Dublin’s iconic Silicon Docks, the two-day summit promises to showcase everything Dublin has to offer as an expanding global technology hub. 

Following the success of last year's inaugural Tech Summit, this year’s event takes place across 5 core stages: Innovation x Tech, Future Tech, The Tech Factory, Start Up X Pitch and Music x Tech.

Innovation and inspiration are at the forefront of DTS '18, with speakers from global heavy-hitters from Nasa and Hubspot to Slack and The White House (via Johanna Maska, Obama’s Director of Media Advance). Headline speakers include Casey Neistat, famed YouTuber and co-founder of multimedia company Beme, Airbnb's Global Head of CX Aisling Hassell and Michael Chertoff, the former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.

This year also sees the launch of Dublin Tech Summit's Women in Tech Awards programme, dedicated to recognising the innovation, leadership and achievements of women in Ireland’s tech landscape, with the ceremony due to take place this October, as well as a number of fringe activities across the city, with musical acts like Kormac & Le Boom taking over Windmill Lane Studios for the DTS launch party. 

There will be a number of exciting events around the summit for Dublin Tech Week. Kicking off the festivities, the DTS Launch Party in association with beatvyne will see the likes of Kormac & Le Boom take over Windmill Lane Studios for a night not to be missed - find out more about the Dublin Tech Summit programme here.
