Vox pop: Views from the Web Summit floor
Lorna Maguire, delegate, Digital Skills AcademyI WANTED to find out who are the companies that are maybe thinking of coming into Ireland, what are the big new areas?
What I really liked was that delegates didn’t go up on stage and sell their companies; they talked about what the opportunities were in the area.
There was great access to speakers, people you wouldn’t expect to see in Ireland.
They’ve done a great job bringing them to Ireland.
Dan Sodergern, UK exhibitor, BlipparWE’RE AN established company and we’ve got something out of this – it’s not just for start-ups.
It’s been good for middle- stage, high-growth companies like us too. We were here a little bit for networking and seeing what the competition are up to, finding out what Ireland is all about and seeing if we could put an office here. It’s a fantastic opportunity for Ireland to showcase its hunger.
Allan Chapman, delegate, Comit CommunicationsIT’S BEEN a fantastically energetic event.
I can’t believe the amount of countries people have come from.
There have been some great speakers and it’s just a melting pot of ideas and positivity.
I guess it’s a bit of a stark contrast to a lot of the other news that’s out there. You come in here and it’s a positive bubble.
Emmet Kelly, delegate, Win WinIT’S MY second time at the Summit; it’s much better this year, much bigger. I was looking for new ideas, partners and at the competition, to see how we could make what we do more efficient.
You have to do your research because there were nearly too many companies to see.
There are lots of good ideas and inspiring people. It’s a great privilege for Ireland to be at the centre of it.
