So, like, two weeks ago, we were invited to apply for press passes to attend this years Dublin Web Summit. Me, a journalist? Well, I suppose I am. I am Startacus after all.

Fingers crossed we (x2) get to go, ‘cause this is one conference that within a couple of years has gone from small Irish Tech festival to the second largest tech conference in Europe.Dublin Web Summit

Perhaps it is the Irish welcome that has meant there has been so much organic growth. Perhaps it is the innovative attitude of the Irish? But right now, quite a lot of innovative things are going down in the Emerald Isle. Innovation is often seen as a catalyst for economic growth, so it make sense that the Irish people are looking to create, invent, talk and listen themselves out of recession.

The Founders of Twitter, YouTube, Skype and hundreds of leading entrepreneurs and influencers have spoken at the Conference over the last couple of years. Add Startacus’ attendance at this years event hopefully into the mix, then you can appreciate that this is a Conference on the up!

Having recently been to the CultureTECH festival in Derry, Northern Ireland, Startacus is keen to see how an initially small festival like the Dublin Web Summit can grow to such mammoth heights. It gives encouragement to the likes of the CultureTECH festival that creating a ‘scene’ can help to create the atmospherics for creativity and growth and a sizeable Festival too.

In 2011, over 1,500 attendees went to the Dublin Web Summit. This year over 3,000 will be there. The Web Summit runs over two days and caters to both the seasoned tech based company Executives, the self starters like Startacus, and the techy geek on the prowl. We hope to see you there.

The Dublin Web Summit runs the 17th and 18th October and you can check out their plans here.
