Wow! What great interest we saw across Ireland in the event. This year’s E3 Dublin has already sold out. Get on the list for next year’s event:
— E3 Conference Team

This conference is being co-hosted by Enterprise Ireland.  

The E3 conference makes America more accessible.  Entrepreneurs will get the chance to hear from and directly engage leading business, government, and media experts.  In fact, this year, E3 Dublin will have a very special focus on marketing and communications strategies for Irish firms looking to enter the United States.  The conference will also aim to unpack the complex current political, economic, and social trends in the country.  These insights will be critical to informing when, where, and how to dive into America.  Companies considering expansion into the market won’t want to miss this exceptional opportunity to get some of the latest skills and strategies for entering and succeeding in one of the world’s most competitive countries.
