Fashion and tech is latest content focus for Web Summit, says CEO Paddy Cosgrave


It won’t just be investors, start-ups and tech folk running riot in Dublin this week, Web Summit’s final year in the Irish capital also brings with it the first ever content series dedicated to fashion.

The Fashion Summit, which will be held all day on Thursday, November 5, aims to “showcase both the evolution and integration of fashion and technology”.

It will have a dedicated main stage with four focused tracks covering fashion design, wearables and lifestyle products, e-commerce platforms and marketplaces, and fashion and social media. It will also feature exhibiting start-ups.

I caught up with Web Summit CEO, Paddy Cosgrave, to hear more about the plans. Head over to Forbes to read the full story.
