Conference Partners organized the 14th Annual EBAN Congress and 9th Annual Awards in Dublin Castle from the 18th – 20th May, 2014. EBAN is the European Business Angels Network, a pan-European representative for the early stage investor community, gathering 109 member organisations across 37 countries today. The theme of this year’s Congress is “The Power of the Collective: Business Angels, Seed Funds, Accelerators & Incubation Space”. It is attracting an array of distinguished speakers including the EBAN President, Paulo Andrez, the Head of Unit at the European Commission’s DG Connect, Viorel Peca and the Co-Founder of the (Web)Summit, Paddy Cosgrave.
The gala dinner and Awards Ceremony will take place in the historic Round Room of the Mansion House, where delegates will enjoy a welcome reception and dinner showcasing the best of Irish food and entertainment. Conference Partners’ project manager, Jennifer McAdam, who is organizing the logistics for this conference commented that:
“I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work so closely with the local host for this conference, Halo Business Angel Network, and facilitate the meeting for this niche and hugely influential audience. It is wonderful to put the spotlight on Ireland and showcase the great work which is being done in this sphere to our European colleagues. Dublin Castle and the Mansion House are such important, historic centres of the political, business, social and cultural fabric of Dublin and Ireland and that these are the chosen venues for this conference and social programme is most apt”.
