Cantillon Conference taking place in Tralee today

Industry leaders, economists, academics and entrepreneurs from around the world will gather in Tralee today for the Cantillon Conference.

The tech event is organised by IT Tralee in partnership with Fexco, and takes place at the Rose Hotel, Tralee.

It’s named in honour of Ballyheigue native Richard Cantillon, a pioneering economist who’s credited with the origin of the term entrepreneur.

This annual event examines and explores key technology-related topics, and this year Cantillon will look at how raw data generated from online interactions can be used to inform decisions.
