What is Futurescope?

In light of the current global pandemic, FutureScope 2020 will not take place this year. We are working on confirming a date for 2021 and will be in touch with you as soon as possible. We look forward to bringing you the best in innovation and collaboration in 2021.

1600+ of those most active in the tech and entrepreneurial ecosystems will gather at FutureScope in the Convention Centre Dublin to explore the implications of emerging technologies. Business leaders will share insights on the challenges coming down the track, how emerging technologies will impact on business and society, the market opportunities that will arise and the implications of disruption and innovation. 

FutureScope attracts innovators and innovation seekers. It aims to identify collaboration opportunities between start-ups, scale-ups, tech multinationals, innovative Irish enterprise, the research community and investors.

FutureScope – where business gets done.
