Created by Silicon Republic, Inspirefest is a two-day festival exploring the future of science, technology, and creativity. 

Attended by more than 3,000 people from over 40 countries it's fast becoming one of the most exciting events on the sci-tech calendar. 

This year's line-up includes (deep breath) New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly; former CNN photojournalist Reggie Selma; explorer Mark Pollock; RTÉ Director General Dee Forbes; activist and columnist Joanne O'Riordan; AsIAm founder Adam Harris; Mi contact founder Ciara-Beth Griffin (who you may recognise from The Tommy Tiernan Show); science writer Dr Claire O'Connell and many, many, more.

Leaders, professionals, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, coders, academics, students, decision-makers and influencers have all attended the festival but, truly, it is for anyone looking to learn from some of society's most brilliant people.

The two-day festival takes place in Dublin's Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Thursday, May 16th, and Friday, May 17th. Check out the Inspirefest schedule here and find tickets here.
