The Buzz at DTS 24: Dublin Tech Summit, dubbed “Europe’s Fastest Growing Tech Festival” will return to RDS on 29 – 30 May 2024. Next year they plan to make some changes to accommodate their growth, including the addition of a new stage. The 2024 event will include a “Tech Hive” a stage within a beehive shaped structure on the show floor that will include niche, technical, in-depth talks exploring cutting-edge innovations, complex code, and advanced software.
HCI Goes Mile High: For the past three years, Human Capital Institute (HCI) has scheduled webinar programming for its members across a variety of workforce, compensation, recruitment, and development topics. In 2024, that will change when HCI’s first in-person event since 2020 kicks off. HCI’s Employee Experience Conference will run 1-2 May in Denver, serving as the institute’s flagship event next year and focusing on matters of well-being, mental health, and DEI strategies.
Submission Opportunity: RSA Conference is one of the most popular submission opportunities we are asked about, and for good reason. Self-described as “the largest and most important computer security conference in the world,” RSA 2024 is scheduled for 6-9 May in San Francisco and accepting speaker proposals until Friday 6 October. Do you have what it takes to speak onstage at RSA? Keep in mind a few useful tips: 1) Make sure the content is fresh and hasn’t been presented elsewhere recently in the same fashion; 2) RSA attendees know the basics, so plan to submit a topic on a more advanced or complex cybersecurity issue; and 3) New this year, submitters can include an example of past speaking to bolster their proposal.

Lunchtime Learning: Viva Tech was created in 2016 by Publicis Groupe & Les Echos to highlight innovation and the startup culture, but the event has since grown to become one of Europe’s largest gatherings in finance, technology, and innovation. Videos from across Viva Tech’s 2023 pavilions are available for on demand viewing until the end of the calendar year, so now is the time to watch conversations with leaders like Marc Benioff and Elon Musk, as well as innovators from across France, Europe, and worldwide. One of our favorite parts about the on demand video is that you can search thematically across the Viva Tech program, choosing between AI, energy/climate tech, sports, cybersecurity, food tech, scaling, and more.
