2nd Annual Digital Youth Event
By Felicity McNeice on 22nd March 2015
The Ulster Museum in Belfast played host to the 2nd Annual Digital Youth 2015 event held on the morning of Friday 20th March. The event was hosted by the South Belfast Partnership Board in conjunction with the South Belfast Economic Forum, Deloitte and Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure who kindly invited Oli along to showcase a few of their latest projects.
The event was aimed at schools across the greater Belfast area and provided a really exciting opportunity for these schools to engage with some local companies, focusing on the digital and technology industry.
Speakers at the event included Seamus Reid, Chair of South Belfast Partnership Board, Gareth McAleese from Go Berserk and Matt Johnston from Digital Media, who is also running the Super Connected Cities programme in Belfast.
The event was a great networking experience for Oli, who met a host of really diverse companies from all over Ireland. We enjoyed catching up with View Digital, an online and printed digital publication, JAM Media based in Dublin who are passionate about combining great ideas with technology and also the R&D team from Kainos - who let us have a go on their digital rollercoaster! Well someone had to!
It was fantastic to meet other companies who are at the leading edge and forefront of innovation within the Irish technology sector.
