“This year’s pool of applicants was far and away the most remarkable yet,” said Caroline O’Neill, CEO ITAG. “Galway is privileged to have such an outstanding technology community – and ITAG is proud to be a part of it.

“We’d like to extend our thanks to all of those who submitted nominations to this year’s programme and to take this opportunity to thank our main sponsors National Irish Bank and our media partners Galway Advertiser and Galway First”

The awards are ITAG’s annual celebration of vitality and innovation in Galway and indeed the west of Ireland’s fast-growing technology community. The awards gala is the largest gathering of technology executives outside Dublin, and this year’s awards ceremony is completely ‘sold out’ with more than 300 technologists attending. MC for the night is Galway Bay fm’s Gareth O’Callaghan with a guest appearance from Oliver Callan, of Nob Nation fame on the night.
