On 15 & 16 February 2017 the Dublin Tech Summit (DTS) will bring together the leaders in innovation, technology and business that are shaping the future of global trends and technologies. Held in the iconic Silicon Docks, the two day summit will showcase everything Dublin has to offer as a global technology hub, with the main conference taking place in The Convention Centre Dublin. By day you will hear from leaders across the seven core pillars and by night, Summit organisers will treat you to the best of what Dublin’s lighter side has to offer.

10,000 attendees from over 100 countries are expected in Dublin to attend the Dublin Tech Summit. Some 200+ global tech industry leaders will speak on 7 unique stages. The DTS will host a number of speakers from an array of backgrounds, attendees from various companies and from many technology subsectors.  This would be a good opportunity to not only to learn more about what Ireland has to offer Canadian startups & SMEs, but also to begin exploring the potential of the European market. Once the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic Free-Trade (CETA) agreement is implemented, the European market will be open to Canadian businesses for their exports, investments and innovation.
