WELL THAT’S THAT.

The last Web Summit to take place in Dublin for the foreseeable future has come to an end.

It was painted as a bittersweet moment, with Paddy Cosgrave stressing that the Irish capital will always be in their hearts. However, the Portuguese deputy prime minister also appeared on stage to speak about how Lisbon is more than ready to step up to the challenge.

It has been argued that the Web Summit leaving Ireland will mean a dent in the country’s reputation and could see a lessening of our status as a tech hub. On the other hand, there are plenty more fish in the sea; the government is confident of more high-profile events arriving.

We want to know how you feel about the move:  Will the Web Summit moving to Portugal be a loss to Ireland?
