Good News For Ireland This Week As Dublin Wins Bid To Host ICIS Conference
Dublin has been selected as the host city for the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) to be held in December 2016.
The capital beat off stiff competition from a number of other European cities to be chosen as the location for the 37th ICIS event, which will take place at the Convention Centre.
The conference will reportedly be attended by at least 1,500 delegates from around the world and is also expected to generate approximately €2 million for the local economy.
The theme for the conference will be ‘Digital Innovation at the Crossroads’.
“This is a significant coup for Dublin and reflects Ireland’s growing reputation as a global technolofy centre,” stated Professor Brian Fitzgerald of Lero.
“Bidding to host the ICIS conference is very competitive and Dublin won out against Munich, Vienna and Istanbul.”
