“This year has marked a profound change in the way businesses operate, engage and propagate their goods, wares and services online,” said Ashley McDonnell, chairperson of Digital Business Ireland.

“Futuristic technologies have become mainstream, with the proliferation of new AI applications and businesses.

“This kind of technological advancement has caused disruption to every sector from retail to hospitality to professional services, and we need to be prepared to not only deal with the change but position our online businesses to become world leaders in the space.”

FutureProof will be the second Digital Summit hosted by DBI after last year’s event at the RDS, which was attended by hundreds of SMEs an e-commerce businesses.
