Digital DNA proves Belfast is holding its own among world's great tech centres

By Margaret Canning

Digital DNA brings together people from across the globe working in every industry and job role to work together and do business differently. It helps them respond to the opportunities and threats of digital by demonstrating how they can harness digital technologies and trends to shape their daily working life, business strategy and allow the business/organisation to succeed in the marketplace.

The event, now in its fifth year, has been backed once again by Deloitte Digital and by Belfast Telegraph as media partner. It will be supported by the talented teams from Deloitte Digital's Belfast and London studios, which deliver technology solutions for some of the world's biggest organisations.

Other partners include Microsoft, Kx Systems, Ulster University and The Open University, as well as Invest NI, Virgin Media Business, Onecom and Samsung.

Gareth Quinn, Digital DNA's founder and managing director, said: "Northern Ireland is holding its own among the world's great technology hotbeds and we want to build on our work over the past four years by delivering an event that reflects the thriving tech community here."

Mike Robinson, CTO at Deloitte Digital, said: "Belfast's tech economy is in a strong position, with the city becoming a vibrant hub for leaders in a number of digital sectors. Digital DNA brings these people together with experts from around the world and provides a forum for them to inspire and challenge one another, to transform how they work and to identify the skills they need to compete with the very best.

"Deloitte Digital is proud to be principal partner for Digital DNA, which has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, helping organisations to embrace new technologies, nurture innovation and contribute to the growth of Belfast's burgeoning tech sector. Deloitte Digital's team is a key part of that community."

Being in the heart of a vibrant and eclectic city allows Digital DNA's delegates from across the world to see what Belfast offers. Through social events and gatherings, a marketplace in the heart of Belfast and an array of attractions, bars and restaurants, Digital DNA is bringing business, technology and people together in a unique environment that fosters partnerships and can strengthen ties with clients and colleagues.
