The company behind Ireland’s largest technology conference, Dublin Tech Summit, has rebranded as Catalyst Media Group, consolidating its services as a 360-degree media company with the firm’s sights on international expansion. Over the next two years, Catalyst Media Group will create 20 new jobs across content development, media and event management.  

Catalyst Media Group now incorporates the company’s two pillar brands, Business & Finance Media Group and Dublin Tech Summit, as well as its other arms in publishing and events including The Business Show, and the new London Tech Summit, which will mark the company’s first foray outside of Ireland.

The group emerged strong from the pandemic, having led with a virtual event offering and expanded into the UK Market. In addition, the company has launched new offerings across digital content production, sustainability and financial services.

Catalyst’s virtual platforms attracted more than 26,000 attendees from panels and discussions by some of the world’s leading figures, while the upcoming Dublin Tech Summit Live 2022 will welcome 10,000+ attendees and 200+ speakers from around the world to network and explore the landscape post-pandemic and in the new decade. 

Speaking at the announcement of the newly rebranded Catalyst Media Group, Managing Director Tracey Carney said: 

“It is with great pride I lead the team behind the launch of Catalyst Media Group. Catalyst Media brings two of Ireland biggest business events together and gives us the unique opportunity to deliver a wider audience and continued innovation to our business partners.  The launch of the Catalyst Media Group brand marks a new chapter in our journey and the continued growth of our expanding diverse team. Creativity and innovation are at the core of Catalyst as we evolve and thrive through the new world of hybrid and digital content.”
