LeWeb is the most important conference about the web in Europe every year. You will not see a more impressive collection of heavy hitters in one place anywhere else. It’s the kind of place where you can meet people like Marissa Meyer or Niklas Zennström or Fred Wilson. One place where global businesses, VCs, other European/US start-ups and leading tech bloggers can see the best of Irish web start-ups.
This year some of the speakers on December 8th and 9th include Dennis Crowley, JP Rangaswami, Toni Schneider and Carlos Ghosn.
For the first time ever, Ireland will be represented at LeWeb and have a dedicated meeting place. Demozone Ireland will be in place over the two days in the Eiffel Dock (next to the Start Up Lounge) and will be showcasing the best of what Ireland has to offer in Internet. It’s an amazing opportunity for Ireland to strut its stuff to the cream of the Internet ecosystem.
11 companies are taking part and have a presence on Demozone Ireland:
- Cauwill Technologies (nominated for the Start Up Competition)
- Teamwork PM
- Infacta (Miximo)
- Realex Payments
You can follow all these Irish companies on Twitter at http://twitter.com/entirl/clients-at-leweb/
As a key focal point during the two day event, Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland will be hosting a networking reception on the Demozone. At 17.30 on the 8th December, Ireland’s Ambassador to France, Paul Kavanagh, will kick off the reception to enable Irish companies, VCs, the big names in the Internet world and journalists to come together and share news and views.
