Swell X Strandhill: A morning of chats and bants

SwellXStrandhill took place in the Draft House on 25 September, 2018 with a packed audience of tourism business folks attending. Even better on this occasion we had plenty of non-commercial locals attending who wanted to contribute to the discussion about how to balance the future of tourism growth in Strandhill / Coolera without having a negative impact on the community.

Swell Lunchtime Workshops

There are plenty of serious talks at the Swell Summit. At lunchtime we will have some nice grub and plenty of opportunities for you to just hang out.

However, just in case you fancied learning something new, we have a few lunchtime workshops on offer. They’re also a nice filler if you don’t like the networking thing.

Each workshop will last 10-15 minutes and you can sign-up on Saturday morning for them. Read More »

Swell Summit FAQs

Are Swell Summit tickets still available?
No: we are completely oversubscribed and have 70+ waitlisters. At this stage we are advising people who don’t have a ticket that your best option is to sign-up for our newsletter for further 2015 Swell events. Do not come to the airport on Saturday if you don’t have a confirmed ticket via Eventbrite.

Can I drop-in for a few sessions even if I don’t have a ticket?
Eh no. Sorry. Read More »

Swell Summit 5*5 Call Out

5*5You may have noticed from our Schedule that we have a number of 5*5 slots?

In each of the Web, Creative and Start-up streams we have a 5*5 session where 5 attendees get 5 minutes each to pitch an idea, plug your business or just go on a rant.

We are now seeking applications from attendees for these 15 slots. It doesn’t have to be a TED Talk so don’t worry about a slick presentation. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase yourself to a very supportive and influential audience.

Want in? Email your 5*5 proposal in 100 words or less to hello@swellsligo.com before next Wednesday, 21 January.
