DLR Summit: Digital Transformation
Thursday, 8th June, Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire
Thank you to everyone who attended the first-ever DLR Summit hosted by Digital Dún Laoghaire on Thursday, 8th June at the Pavilion Theater. We were delighted to host a line-up of industry leaders and thank each one for educating our community on the topic of digital transformation.
Speakers from organizations such as Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, and more made Dún Laoghaire’s first tech conference a success. We were able to get #DLRSummit trending across Twitter in Ireland at the number three spot for several hours and eventually jumped to number one.
It was invigorating to see the Pavilion full with students, business leaders, and digital innovators all come to congregate and learn about all aspects of digital transformation, including how to utilize social media platforms, how to provide excellent user experience and the changing nature of digital communication.
BID Chairperson Anthony Quigley was delighted with the summit’s outcome. Noting, “It was a huge success. Our speakers were excellent, they really gave audiences something to go home with,” he said.
Adrian Hopkins of Conference Managers agreed. “We’re really looking forward to getting started on planning the next DLR Summit. From today’s success, it’s obvious DLR Summit is the kind of event Dún Laoghaire gears up for.”
Thank you again to everyone who attended and to our outstanding speakers. Be sure to look out for DLR Summit 2018! See you all next year.
