Digital DNA Announces New Headline Partnership with BT

Northern Ireland’s biggest tech and digital event, Digital DNA Belfast, is set to return to St George’s Market on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th June. 


The highly anticipated event brings together all corners of the tech community, and since its formation in 2013, has grown to attract over 3,000 attendees each year. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit three stages, hosting over 60 unique talks, featuring over 120 speakers. The event will also provide unprecedented opportunities for attendees to network with others from right across the tech and digital community in Northern Ireland. 


The 2022 edition of Digital DNA Belfast will also see the largest range of businesses taking part with 40+ partners confirmed to be present in the marketplace area of the event.


In 2022, Digital DNA Belfast will also be supported by a brand new headline partnership with BT, and specifically the BT Ireland Innovation Centre, to help deliver the event, with a focus on innovation, creativity and technology.


Commenting on the importance of the event for the tech community in Northern Ireland, Jonathan Campbell BT Technical Delivery Manager said;


“BT is proud to support Digital DNA in putting together the largest meeting place for the tech sector in Northern Ireland. It’s a great platform for knowledge sharing, with some of the best minds under one roof. Now more than ever, collaboration in helping promote this sector and the great quality of jobs available for the future, is so important. We’re particularly excited to share more about the BT Ireland Innovation Centre, and showcase some of our own collaborative work in the expo area and on-stage.”


The BT Ireland Innovation Centre (BTIIC), based in Belfast has become an internationally recognised global centre for excellence in research, innovation and development since it launched in October 2017.


Digital DNA’s VP of Partnerships Matthew Devlin echoed this;


“Digital DNA is now in its tenth year of supporting the growth of the tech ecosystem in Northern Ireland, and through our partnerships with incredible companies like BT, we will continue to be committed to providing the critically important social infrastructure for collaborative work and innovation, to showcase what we can do here and further propel the entire sector.”
