Wickr is described as the most trusted messenger in the world with top scores for privacy and transparency. – Thursday 11:40am Centre Stage/2:10pm Code Stage
Paddy Cosgrave – Paddy takes to the Centre Stage each morning to give the opening remarks but Wednesday will surely have a slightly different tone as not only is it the closing day of this year’s summit, but it is the closing day on Ireland’s reign as host to the Web Summit as it moves to Lisbon, Portugal for 2016. – Thursday 9:20am Centre Stage
There are over 1000 speakers to chose from including some of the world’s leading founders, investors, inventors, CEOs, influencers, designers and thinkers so this is just an extremely small selection of what’s on offer but ones that we think are not to be missed.
