The Winners of the Spiders 2018

November 30th, 2018

Last night saw the 23rd annual Spider Awards take place in the RDS Concert Hall. Since joining the DTS group earlier this year, there was a fresh feel to the distinguished event which left guests singing and dancing the night away after battling it out to be named one of the country’s best.

DTS CEO, Will Brighting said, “Now in its 23rd year, The Spiders has been appreciating home-grown tech talent since the internet dial tone of the 1990s. It has not only born witness to Ireland’s transforming digital landscape, but has also offered commendation and encouragement to young and established companies as they have attempted to forge new ground in this unchartered technological territory. Dublin Tech Summit is thrilled to welcome the Spiders under its umbrella and we hope to marry our youth and energy with the Spider’s prestige and experience to develop a digital awards event for Ireland’s rapidly progressing tech-focused future.”

Hosted by Newstalk Tech Correspondent Jess Kelly, the Spiders are renowned for having incredibly high standards and this year was no exception. So who took the top spot?
