This is an ideal opportunity to raise the profile of towns across Ireland and to help retain existing and attract new workers and residents to your town. A digitally advanced town can encourage investment from new and existing employers or support a start-up community. The .IE Digital Town Awards create a sense of pride in a town and act as a catalyst for creating positive change.
We are delighted to welcome our category sponsors Western Development Commission, Connected Hubs, Vodafone and AIB Merchant Services.
Our press release was also issued this morning (22nd Feb 2022) announcing full details of the .IE Digital Town programme.
