Seminar: Mind of Makers
Tuesday 08 October 2019
Now in its second year, the IE Domain Registry's Digital Town initiative promotes awareness, knowledge, use and understanding of the internet in Ireland by its citizens, businesses and communities. By showcasing the efforts of a town which is embracing digital for its citizens and local businesses, the initiative seeks to highlight the economic, social and cultural benefits of the internet to towns across the country, and to ensure SMEs and local economies are realising the full potential of digital technology, particularly e-commerce. It is hoped to inspire other Irish towns to take practical steps towards becoming fully digital.
Sligo Town was chosen as this year’s Digital Town for its achievements in cultivating a truly digital environment in the town, and for its ongoing success in fully embracing digital for its residents and local businesses. IE Domain Registry believes that in showcasing Sligo’s efforts, it can inspire other Irish towns to take practical steps towards becoming fully digital. Gorey was chosen as Ireland’s Digital Town 2018, please click here for more.
During September and October, IE Domain Registry, working with groups in Sligo including the County Council, Local Enterprise Office, Chamber of Commerce, Business Improvement District (BID), South Sligo Smart Community and Sligo IT amongst others, planned and oversaw a number of digital events for businesses, citizens, community groups and school children. Full details of events are here.
The programme of events will culminate in a special Digital Town 2019 Closing Ceremony to celebrate Sligo as Ireland’s Digital Town 2019 on 14 October in the Model Gallery at 7.30am. Master of Ceremonies is Bobby Kerr and there will be a special keynote featuring Phil Prentice, Chief Officer of Scotland’s Towns Partnership.
