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.
