What to Expect at Digital DNA 2021

Since 2013, Digital DNA has established itself as the biggest tech event in Northern Ireland. And for 2021, we will be back in person on Tuesday 28th & Wednesday 29th September.


Digital DNA is a yearly conference that brings together thousands of people from around Northern Ireland and further afield. It’s an opportunity to connect with some of the brightest minds in the technology industry, and also offers the opportunity for you to network and learn from people who have attended our conferences in the past. Over the course of 2 days, there are countless talks about key tech topics, Live Q&As, Expo’s, Side Sessions and workshops plus more for you to get involved with.

Who attends Digital DNA 

We bring together the regions leading tech talent, investors, multinational and indigenous companies. Many of the people attending are currently working or interested in the tech sector, and are keen to learn more about new breakthroughs and innovations that are being made every day.  


We bring the energy and create the most exciting event experience for the tech community.


What to expect at Digital DNA 

WE DON’T DO VANILLA. You won’t find stuffy, academic style talks that are deeply technical, long and theoretical. All our talks are carefully curated to be thought provoking and provide knowledge to our audience.


At our last in-person event in 2019, our flagship event brought together more than  3000 + attendees , 85 exhibitors, 16 startups and 160+ speakers. 


Digital DNA 2021 will be bigger than ever, and we can’t wait to welcome you back in-on the 28th and 29th September 2021.
