Since the Web Summit left Dublin, it left a void that was waiting to be filled and Dublin Tech Summit was created to fill that void. For the first two years of its existence, it was held in Dublin’s National Convention Centre but if it was to expand or grow it had to be held elsewhere and this year it is been held in the RDS.
When you mention the words RDS and Tech Conference, the first thing you will be thinking of is Wi-Fi especially with around 10,000 attendees attending over two days. But bar a few minor hiccups there has been no major Wi-Fi issues and more importantly no long queues for some of the talks.
One major criticism the Dublin Tech Summit faced was having major speakers speaking at the same time, which forced you to decide which speaker you wanted to see. Thankfully this is no longer an issue and with various stages there are plenty of different talks that you can attend. Today most of the talks seem to be covering or mentioning two areas, AI and security. This is because AI is now powering a lot of the technology that we are using and will be using and GDPR has had a major impact on security.
Walking around the stands I was looking for something unique that caught my eye and earlier today I managed to get an interview with Pivot Cloud who offer a unique solution for companies going through digital transformation. You can see the interview below.

The Dublin Tech Summit have learned from the previous two events and have done a great job in a new venue. They have also managed to get great a line-up of speakers from Chris Hadfield through to Brenda and John Romero. I will be at Dublin Tech Summit tomorrow along with other members of the Irish Tech News team and if you see any of us feel free to come up and talk to us.
