Digital, ecommerce, Irish News, Spider Awards | Mon 7 Mar | Author – Business & Finance

Finalists for the 25th annual Spider Awards ceremony will come together for an in-person event later this month.  The event will honour Irish companies and individuals driving digital excellence in all aspects of their work.

The finalists have been announced for the 25th annual Spider Awards set to take place on March 31st in The Round Room at The Mansion House in Dublin.

The list was unveiled following a rigorous judging process by a panel of industry experts. Nominees were evaluated across 20 categories on the theme of “Driving Digital, Emerging Stronger.” This year’s ceremony will see the return to an in-person event for the first time since 2019.

The categories of Best Remote Team and Customer Continuity Awards have been added to commend the achievements of those who adapted and excelled amidst the pandemic. These additional awards will acknowledge the work of individuals and companies that emerged stronger during the global health crisis.

The Spider Awards — dubbed “The Oscars of Ireland’s digital industry” — celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. It is the longest running digital awards programme in Ireland and has had an incredible journey over the years as Ireland has proven to be a hub for digital innovation.

The event sets out to recognise and further encourage creativity to flourish and grow as the awards continue to adapt to a changing society.  You can book your table for the 25th Annual Spiders Awards here
