Dublin Web Summit Check List

October 16, 2012

I love all things social media with a special grá for Twitter and Instagram. I missed out on going to the Dublin Web Summit last year and was going to make sure I didn’t miss it this time. I booked my ticket way in advance and was delighted with myself.

Then came the call to be involved in the Live Tweet Team…. I couldn’t resist. I jumped on board and have been driving my twitter followers mad with #websummit tweets already.

I’ve been assigned to the Main Stage along with around eight other Live Tweeters. There are around 50 of us in total all giving a different view point of what we are seeing, hearing and observing. My feed will include some Instagram tweets too to show everyone exactly what they are missing!

So I need to make a list of stuff to bring with me as I will be staying in a local hotel on Weds night so I can enjoy DWS by Night and get back into the RDS for my 8am start… so here is my list:


  • Laptop
  • iPad
  • iPhone
  • Chargers x 2
  • Notebook & pens (although I am hoping I can stock up on my pen obsession from some of the stands!)
  • List of Main Stage speakers with twitter handles and backrounders for both days
  • General list of attendees
  • Business cards


  • Dash of fake tan! (of course this tan is real!)
  • Comfortable shoes – day time
  • Dancing shoes – night time
  • Fancy shoes – ( for the Leaders Lunch in the Four Seasons Hotel which I was lucky enough to gain access to!)
  • Comfortable clothes – day time
  • Dancing clothes – night time
  • Fancy clothes – Leaders Lunch
  • Do I need a coat? Will only be lugging it around with me so might not
  • Large smile!


  • Jelly beans
  • Diet Coke & water
  • Nuts & raisins
  • Chewing gum

So, all I need to do now is get all of this together and get myself to the Web Summit first thing tomorrow!

I’ll tweet you there!
