Lane Attends 2024 Dublin Tech Summit

The Dublin Tech Summit is a premier event where tech enthusiasts from all over Europe come together to spark ideas, nurture innovations, and forge connections. Whether you’re a seasoned industry leader or an up-and-coming tech startup, this is THE event to be at. Dive into unmatched networking, recruitment talks, sales opportunities, and partnership prospects.

Following the success of last year’s DTS, Lane didn’t think twice about attending this year. We dove headfirst into conversations with potential clients, built key partnerships in tech, and swapped insights with top industry minds. Thanks to this remarkable event, our sales pipeline got a boost, and our brand shone brighter.

Key Learnings from the Summit

Last year, AI dominated the scene, but this year, there has been a noticeable shift. Companies are now more cautious about AI, opting to utilize it for incremental improvements in software and work processes. AI proves most effective when enhancing functional software, but applying it to flawed systems can worsen existing issues. While some consider fax obsolete, many partners still rely on it, catching unprepared companies off guard. Chat and messaging companies, on the other hand, recognize fax’s continued relevance in various industries.
