Tomorrow’s summit (June 10th) is the largest such event in the Dublin Web Summit series and has now completely sold out; something which highlights the huge potential and importance of start-ups in Ireland. Paddy Cosgrave (@paddycosgrave), organiser of the Dublin Web Summit stated,

“While London has a few reasonably sized tech events, there’s nothing on this scale. It’s clear that the tech sector in Ireland is booming, so we should certainly continue to nurture it.

“Events like the Dublin Web Summit show the startup sector is flourishing. Everyday we hear about new startups doing well and the summit is about celebrating that success.”

The sixth Dublin Web Summit, taking place in the RDS, Dublin, will host another impressive list of speakers in an increasingly successful series. These include Marcus Segal, COO of Game Operations at Zynga, Mike Butcher, editor of TechCrunch Europe, Tariq Krim, founder and CEO of Jolicloud, Mike Downey, director of platform evangelism at Microsoft, Sam Barnett, founder of ad technology company Struq, and Jennifer O’Connell, founding editor of Ireland’s online news website The Journal. Other speakers include Emi Gal, founder and CEO of Brainient, and Eamon Leonard, co-founder and CEO of Orchestra.

The Dublin Web Summit organisers have curated a useful Twitter list of those scheduled to speak at tomorrow’s event. Follow us on Twitter (@thesociable) for updates or check-out the live blog post which we’ll be running on the site tomorrow.
