What is being billed as Ireland’s biggest digital conference for SMEs is set to take place at Cork’s City Hall on April 7th 2016.

The aim of the conference, Digicon, is to provide small and medium business owners and employees with the knowledge to drive their businesses forward, through the delivery of real and relevant information from experts in the online space. It is sponsored by Three and is the first in a series of annual regional events.
 
Attendees will learn from leading brands including Google, Facebook, YouTube and PayPal on how to attract new customers, increase sales and build their profile in a cost-effective way.
 
The conference organisers are expecting an audience of 1,000-plus to attend the event which is aimed at SMEs, marketing and PR executives and managers, micro-enterprises, start-ups and anybody with an interest in digital media.
 
DigiCon Event Director Michelle McDonagh says: “The Internet has completely changed the way business is done and the constantly evolving technology means that many small to medium businesses are struggling to keep up. Of the estimated €6bn spent online annually by Irish consumers, 60 to 70% goes overseas. We want to bring some of that spend back into the SME sector and open small business in Ireland up to a global market.”
