Are officials polls more accurate than the polls of Maurice de Hond?

Come and join us on Wednesday the 15th of February from 6pm for what promises to be a lively discussion on the hot topic of social media and its striking impact on elections. Our guest speaker Antoinette Hoes (CEO of Wunderman Amsterdam) who will be speaking at the Dublin Tech Summit, together with representatives from a number of social media platforms will deliver a series of engaging lightning talks on this and other relevant subjects including the issues of fake news and hacking.
