The Head of Adtech at Facebook, Dave took to the Marketing Summit to discuss the state of the industry. He presented on #FOMO, not the kind that makes you go clubbing on a Monday night, but “fear of missed opportunity” in marketing.

Tiki Barber


Tiki Barber, the NFL legend was all over Web Summit today, the Centre, Startup University and Marketing Stages all got a taste of him. David Beckham, Beyoncé and Lebron James were all topics of conversation in the Reach for the Stars fireside.

Sean Rad


Sean talked at Centre Stage about Tinder, the data that drives it and the future of the platform. He also told the audience that the Irish user base was extremely active on the app. Insert winky emoji here.

Randy Braun


Flew a drone around Web Summit, as you do on a Wednesday afternoon. He told us how drones are being used for good.

Jacki Ford Morie


Spoke at Society Summit about selfies. Or more specifically, the ultimate selfie and what we leave behind in a digital world.

Steve Angello


Steve, the world-famous DJ formerly of Swedish House Mafia, was on Centre Stage today. He discussed streaming sites and how he makes money as a musician.

Stephen Hills


Stephen, the president of The Washington Post, took over the Content Stage to discuss the future of news reporting. New distribution platforms may seem like threats at first, but they can be transformed into opportunities.

Samantha Barry


Samantha Barry presented CNN’s social media strategy for the recent Democratic Debate. Read more on how they turned a single debate into a two-day-long conversation.
