Belfast to host MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Europe conference for three years

MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Europe conference will be hosted in Belfast for the next three years, highlighting the city’s position as a rapidly growing tech hub.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Technology Review magazine hosts an annual conference in Europe to explore recent advances in the world of tech and has chosen the Northern Ireland capital, Belfast as host for the next three years.

The EmTech Europe conference brings together researchers, leaders, CEOs, and tech enthusiasts from around the world, connecting top minds in cutting-edge fields such as artificial intelligence, connected health, and green energy.

Belfast is a rapidly emerging tech hub. The 2021 conference is due to be held 27-28 May and will take place digitally due to Covid, with the intention for the 2022 and 2023 events being to move back to the regular live event format.

Nico Crepaldi, head of custom content at MIT Technology Review, commented: “We are delighted to see the EmTech series returning to Europe, better and stronger than ever before, with Belfast as its hub.”

Local tech giant Kainos’ Group chief technology officer Tom Gray, who is curating the event, added: “To secure EmTech Europe for Belfast is a major coup for our burgeoning tech sector and wider industries. MIT Technology Review is a globally respected publication and being able to play host to one of its flagship conferences affirms Belfast’s place as a growing global tech hub.”
