The event is limited to 1200 attendees to enable quality networking and will feature approximately 100 speakers and panellists, with 40 exhibitors.

Now in its sixth year, FutureScope, organised by Dublin BIC, is focused on delivering attendees real value from the one-day event. A special emphasis is placed on purposeful networking and the creation of collaboration opportunities for start-ups, scale-ups, multinational companies, innovative Irish enterprise, the research community and investors. Specifically, FutureScope looks at how emerging technologies are creating opportunities in smart cities, food, travel, security, gaming, health and digital transformation.

FutureScope highlights will include keynotes on emerging technologies and how they will shape business opportunities into the future; the crowning of the FutureScope One2Watch 2019 award, where one Irish start-up will be recognised for the most scalable early-stage business idea; panels and workshops on business opportunities arising from smart cities, 5G, blockchain, artificial intelligence and more.

FutureScope 2019 promises to deliver real insights and practical knowledge through with strong engagement from Ireland’s most successful founders, CEOs and leaders from high-profile companies and many more, all looking to collaborate and share views on what they see as the major emerging trends affecting their business.

Content at FutureScope is delivered across four stages, each with a specific purpose:

Insights Stage: Provide attendees with insightful perspectives on emerging technologies and how they will shape our future world

Collaboration Stage: Showcase great examples of collaboration from around Ireland and identify new opportunities for collaboration

Innovation Stage: Showcase and promote the innovations driving the smart economy

Entrepreneurship Stage: Identify opportunities and funding options, share knowledge, insights, tools and techniques to empower entrepreneurs to start and scale

“FutureScope puts the spotlight on the key emerging technologies and the impact of these for business. People walk away from a day spent at FutureScope with a real sense of what’s coming down the track and where the opportunities lie for their business. Against this backdrop, and through panel discussions, tech demonstrations, innovative showcases and structured networking, FutureScope offers the perfect platform for identifying mutually beneficial collaborative partnerships.”
