The online phenomenon that is IrishBizParty hosts their fourth conference at The Green Isle Hotel Dublin on Wednesday April 15th.

Founded by Bank of Ireland ‘Start Up Hero’ award winner Samantha Kelly, IrishBizParty is an online community of businesses who advise, guide and promote each other.

They come together every Wednesday night on Twitter, using the hashtag #IrishBizParty and such was the popularity of the group, they have also created a Facebook group where there is now over three thousand members.

Samantha believes the success of the Conferences to date is down to the natural progression of people liking to meet offline and in person.
Wexford, and Kerry have played host to the tribe of business owners at the last conferences, and they are set to take Dublin by storm for the second time with this year’s event.

_DSC1453Following the success of last year’s conference at the Green Isle Hotel, where over 200 delegates from SME’s all over the country attended, organisers have opted to return to The Green Isle for the second year running.

‘We are very excited about it and encourage any business looking for help and support to join us at the event.’ Samantha says.

The main sponsor on the day is Big Red Cloud. Marc O Dywer, CEO says: ‘We are absolutely delighted to be the headline sponsor. Big Red Cloud supplies online accounting software to thousands of small businesses across Ireland. Any initiative to help owners and managers better manage their businesses has to be welcomed. We have a long tradition at Big Red Cloud of supporting innovative events and Biz Party Inspires fits the bill perfectly.

Other sponsors on the day include,, Digitel IP, Castle Print, Screens to Go, and Pinnacle Productions.

Tickets for the full day including lunch are priced at €40.00 and a percentage of ticket sales will be donated to charity.


Keynote Speakers on the day range from Marketing Experts to Journalists and Authors and are all experts in their own categories.
