The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the events industry’s shift towards virtual activities last year, with the number of organisations hosting a virtual conference in 2020 doubling from that in 2019. The industry’s transition to virtual has been widely successful, with many benefiting from virtual conferences being accessible on a global basis. The uptick in virtual events is in line with wider trends in favour of online video streaming, with Cisco reporting that media consumption of this kind will make up over 80 percent of internet traffic by 2022. 

Dublin Tech Virtual Summit aims to foster stronger cooperation across ecosystems, connect tech communities, and develop long-lasting partnerships that will drive innovation and entrepreneurship into a shared future. Themes this year include future workforce, digital transformation, tech for good, and cyber security, among others. 

Speaking about the second Dublin Tech Summit Virtual, Managing Director Tracey Carney said: “We are very proud to be running our second virtual summit. The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on the events industry and we are delighted to be able to connect with attendees  virtually. The pandemic has  seen a vast transformation in tech, making it even more important to have the discussions we platform at Dublin Tech Summit. Like every other year, we will be providing opportunities for tech fans and professionals to gain and share cutting edge insights with industry professionals. We have reduced our ticket price (€29) to remove barriers for all to attend and make  DTS Virtual as inclusive as possible..”
