Event description

Description

Now in its second year, the ‘Digital Town’ initiative promotes awareness, knowledge, use and understanding of the internet in Ireland by its citizens, businesses and communities. It also highlights the benefits and possibilities of the internet and celebrates the digital achievements of a local town. In 2018, Gorey, Co. Wexford was selected as Ireland’s first ‘Digital Town’.

Sligo has been chosen for its ongoing efforts in cultivating a truly digital environment, and for its success in embracing digital for its citizens and local businesses.

Through showcasing the efforts undertaken in Sligo and demonstrating the tangible benefits to towns of making a shift towards digitisation, it is hoped that Sligo can inspire other Irish towns to take practical steps towards becoming fully digital.

A series of 6 – 7 digital events will take place, culminating in the main celebration event. The official celebration of Digital Town 2019 will be at The Model Gallery on 14 October at 9.30am, where CEO David Curtin will deliver a short address, followed by a panel discussion on ‘The Digital Town’ featuring local and national business experts. The event MC will be Bobby Kerr of Newstalk.
