what is the big data conference?

The annual Big Data Belfast Conference is the place to be for all things surrounding Big Data and Innovation. This annual even, now in its 6th year, has seen significant growth in attendee numbers, sponsorship interest, and presentation content maturity. The conference has a highly respected reputation within the industry and a growing networking community where companies can engage with attendees and create real commercial opportunities. The aim of this event is to drive thought leadership in one of the most exciting and expansive business clusters based in Northern Ireland. 


Big Data Belfast 2018 will see a different format to previous years, with 6 different sessions allowing a “two track” conference – The “Business Track” and the “Techie Track”. The new format will offer a technical deep dive alongside the higher interest discussions. Belfast is a hub for Engineers and Programmers, and Big Data Belfast will offer sessions for the experts to get their teeth into.  

Speakers were excellent, engaging and passionate about their topics.

The event is expected to attract delegates from not only Northern Ireland’s leading businesses in technology, but also from further afield, RoI, UK and Europe. With a strong focus on both the technical aspect of running Big Data Analytics and the business use cases that have driven latest marketing innovations, this event will have a wide appeal. 

Previous attendees have come from large corporates such as PWC, Liberty IT, CITI, Public Sector departments and right down to the innovative businesses coming through, such as Brainwave Bank.
