Our first international event went spectacularly! On 20 October 2016, over 200 participants converged on re:publica Dublin in order to attend sessions on three stages. There's more! The next re:publica Belrin in May 2017 will take place under the motto “Love out Loud”.
We've only just celebrated our tenth anniversary at re:publica TEN, and now it continues – in Ireland! The very first re:publica outside of Germany is taking place today, October 20th, 2016.

It's time! Tonight we are having our warmup party – and tomorrow it is already re:publica Dublin! To prevent you from getting lost in Dublin, this is what you need to know about the venues and the schedule of the event in one glimpse.
