FutureScope, Ireland’s only conference dedicated to exploring new business opportunities arising from emerging technologies, will take place in the Convention Centre Dublin on Thursday, 28th March and super early bird tickets have just gone on sale for €89.
Now in its sixth year, FutureScope, organised by Dublin BIC, is focused on delivering real value to attendees. The event is limited to 1200 attendees to enable quality networking and will feature approximately 100 speakers and panellists, with 40 exhibitors.
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.
Highlights at the one-day event in 2019 will include keynotes on emerging technologies and how they will shape business opportunities of the future; the crowning of the FutureScope One2Watch 2019, where one Irish start-up will be recognised for having the most scalable early-stage business idea; panels and workshops on business opportunities arising from smart cities, 5G, blockchain, artificial intelligence and more.

- 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

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.”
