Independent.ie moves to Summit
THE movement of Independent.ie's newsroom to Dublin's RDS for the three days of the Web Summit showcases how media organisations continue to evolve and change to meet the opportunities of the digital age.
And as media partner to Web Summit, Independent.ie and the Irish Independent will bring all the breaking news and views from the event over the three days.
We'll have interviews with the world's technology elite and bring you behind the scenes with some of those hoping that they have found the next billion euro idea.
Technology Editor Adrian Weckler will be compiling a daily diary of the best bits while our team of reporters will mingle with the 20,000 delegates for the best stories.
Names like Eva Longoria, the Desperate Housewives star who is an angel investor, and supermodel/entrepreneur Lily Cole will be rubbing shoulders with the likes Mark Pincus, founder of gaming giant Zynga, and Tim Webber, Oscar-winner and visual FX specialist. Irish technology stars including the Collison Brothers will also hold court.
Overall the event is worth an estimated €100m to the local economy. Today Taoiseach Enda Kenny will ring the Nasdaq opening bell from the event.
With a digital first strategy already in place across Independent News & Media titles, our team of reporters, commentators, videographers and photographers - allied to our social media coverage - will ensure you get the best Web Summit experience.
