This is the first in a series of audio interviews, reflecting on the experience & value of Le Web 2010 from the point of view of those who went.
December 2010 was the first time Ireland went to Le Web in Paris. Not only was it the first year Ireland had a stand and national presence at the event in Paris – but Ireland was the first country ever to have its own stand there. Until Le Web 2010, a few Irish companies and individuals attended Le Web as separate entities.
This time is was different.
But was it worth it? What benefit was Le Web to Ireland & Irish business? Was it simply a lot of hype & buzz?
The time & money invested in Le Web – was it worth it?
Paul O’Mahony interviewed those who went to Le Web with Enterprise Ireland. The first person he interviewed was Karen Hallez, Enterprise Ireland, Paris
