Rachel McGrath

BelTech, the popular technology conference that unites technologists under one all-encompassing banner, is returning to Belfast for its tenth year.

Taking place at Titanic Belfast on 8 and 9 March, BelTech 2023 will be addressed by Sebastian Stücker, Director of Research Science at Zoom. Carlos Gutiérrez, EMEA and Latam ADM Product Group Leader, at Micro Focus in Madrid will also deliver a keynote address on sustainability.

BelTech is this year curated by individuals from four of the region’s largest technology companies; Kainos, Allstate Northern Ireland, Hamilton Robson and Expleo.

Set to inspire a burst of activity among local innovators, BelTech will focus on breaking down barriers and empowering people and organisations to success anywhere, anytime.

BelTech Sessions will cover:

  • Distributed Enterprise and Innovation with talks focusing on how organisations are evolving to build hybrid workplaces and shifting mindsets to transform the way we work and deliver products to market.
  • Artificial Intelligence to explore its rapid growth across the global economy in fields such as healthcare, finance and manufacturing. Talks will delve into topics on Digital Experience Intelligence (DXI) and Practical ML in Cyber Security.
  • Sustainability to discuss the practice of designing, developing and using technology in a way that is environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable.

BelTech will continue to support the next generation of tech businesses with its Dragon Den partnership with Techstart Ventures. The winner will receive a £10,000 grant to kickstart an innovative or novel business idea. Two runner ups will also receive £5,000 each.

Supported by Belfast City Council, the conference will also see the return of the first BelTech EDU since 2019 which will see school pupils use their creativity and skills to compete against each other and design a new app. The finalists will present their apps on day two of the conference.

Speaking at the launch of BelTech 2023, Chloe McAree, Senior Software Engineer at Hamilton Robson said:  “We are pleased to be supporting BelTech, a conference that will examine the latest and emerging advancements in technologies such as distributed enterprises, artificial intelligence and sustainable computing practices. Northern Ireland’s tech industry is well known for its collaboration, and it is always fantastic to see the community coming together once again to share knowledge and experience that will inspire and empower innovators. There’s an extremely strong programme of lively discussions and presentations and I have no doubt it will bring great value for local technologists, both of today and of the future.”
