Are you heading to Uprise Festival tomorrow in the RDS? If not, you should probably reconsider…
With over 500 companies, 128 speakers (including our editor) and 200 mentors, the event promises to be a jam packed day that won’t leave you feeling like you’ve just navigated every other tech conference on offer.
A quick visit to the Uprise Festival website immediately shows you that this event is something a little different. Priding itself on stylistic similarities to SXSW, Uprise promises a ‘unique festival vibe’ with everything from cosy fireside chats, bands, networking and great parties.
The event will feature over 60 hours of content, keeping all 3,000 attendees enthused and entertained from day into night.
The company’s mantra is ‘People First, Tech Second’ and each event has its own theme. Tomorrow’s theme will be ‘The Migration of People, Money and Thinking’ and this will be touched on throughout the day.
One big difference with this event to any other? There will be NO WIFI! Not just not bad wifi – no wifi at all. Uprise wants its event to be distraction free so with no wifi and no distracting event app buzzing in your pocket every minute, the intimate staging of the event can’t carry on interruption-free.
Tomorrow will be solely dedicated to expert panels, workshops, firesides and investment sessions with over 128 product-focused speakers on stage during the day-long event.
