Joint statement on behalf of Paddy Cosgrave, Dublin Web Summit, & Michael Duffy, CEO, RDS
As the world’s largest technology event, the Dublin Web Summit, draws to a close later today, planning is already well underway for the 2015 event, with the Web Summit’s first international expansion due to take place in Las Vegas next May.
Notwithstanding the Wi-Fi issues experienced at certain intervals, organizers are confident that this year’s event has been the best yet, with over 20,000 influential technology enthusiasts enjoying the 3 day Summit.
Paddy Cosgrave, Founder and CEO Web Summit, today commented “Notwithstanding Wi-Fi issues, the RDS is a great venue. The RDS has worked with us to grow this event to become the biggest tech event in Europe. We look forward to building upon our success for 2015. The event has been the best yet, with over 20,000 influential technology enthusiasts enjoying the three day Summit.”
Michael Duffy, CEO, RDS said “The Web Summit is a phenomenally successful event, of significant importance to this country and one with which we are extremely proud to partner. As such, we are delighted to host the event. Notwithstanding this, the Web Summit is an entirely unique technology event which, and as with any technology event of this scale, does present certain unique challenges, due to the large numbers in attendance and the unprecedented demands on the Wi-Fi and network systems, aligned to extremely high volumes of devices concurrently accessing the network.
Moving forward, the organizers of the Web Summit and ourselves will work in close partnership to ensure that this remains the world class technology event that it has become. We are 100% committed to working hand in hand with the Web Summit team in order to ensure that these issues are resolved, by whatever means required, ahead of the next event in 2015.”
