Digital DNA 2019 will be the biggest Belfast tech event yet

  • The Digital DNA tech event gets bigger every year, and this year's looks to be the most exciting event yet with over 3,000 expected to attend.

    The tech industry in Northern Ireland has absolutely exploded in the past several years, and events such as Digital DNA are attracting bigger crowds and more influential speakers than ever before. This year's event is the second in a row to be powered by Belfast-headquartered tech firm pwc, and will include over 150 speakers and 100 exhibitors.

    Digital DNA will be taking place on June 18th and 19th this year and will fill out the historic St George's Market building, transforming the usual market venue into a hub of tech and business bustle. Around 3,000 delegates from hundreds of companies are expected to attend the event, with a range of collaborative events and networking opportunities you won't find the rest of the year.

    The event will host the prestigious Digital DNA Awards, which includes Northern Irish finalists such as Allstate, Dawson, Andrews, Kainos, Novosco, See Sense, and Whitespace. This year it will also host the BCS IT Professionals Awards and will include a showcase from the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE), both firsts for Digital DNA. Support for the event has come from Danske Bank, Allstate, ESRI Ireland, MSC Group, and Tourism NI.

    Simon Bailie, Chief Executive of Digital DNA, explained the appeal of the event: "Not only will the event be a great place to learn from peers, it will also allow the local tech sector can come and collaborate, either as a business or an organisation looking to expand their reach. Digital DNA can provide the perfect vehicle for organisations to forge new relationships, build new partnerships or gain exposure to new sectors which would otherwise be unavailable."

    Super Early Bird Tickets are currently on sale at for companies that want to plan ahead for the event now.
