Paddy Cosgrave

Adrian Weckler, on Independent.ie, reports:

Paddy Cosgrave’s Web Summit is to move MoneyConf, the 5,000-strong financial technology conference scheduled for Dublin this June, to Lisbon.

Instead of a standalone event this June, it will now be part of the Web Summit this November, said Mr Cosgrave.

It is understood that the decision was taken in recent weeks. Companies that had made plans around the two-day June conference in the RDS in June will now be “accommodated” through refunds and possibly travel and accommodation compensation.

    Seems to be a yearly drama for this guy. Always in the limelight about moving his conferences elsewhere. Don’t know much about him but it seems he is good at getting free advertising when this happens every time. The papers applaud him like he is some sort of entrepreunerial tech messiah. Sounds to me like poor planning and organisation. Does anyone really care where he holds it?

      Yes but now he’s doing it again because he’s Making A Point, and definitely not for the publicity.

    Please God let him take that jumper with him too. Of course if he really wanted to annoy us he’s have moved the gig to the UK.

    Y’know what Lisbon has though? Pasteis de Nata. I’d move a conference there if it meant I could get a rake of them for free.

      They’re amazing, Avoca cafes do a very passable version, so I’m getting them to cater my new event, provisionally titled NataSummit, now incorporating CashConf, RDS, June 2019.
