Grafton Media announces Global Platinum Sponsorship Agreement with the Web Summit
Grafton Media, The Digital Media Agency are delighted to announce that they have agreed to be Global Platinum Sponsor for the very successful Web Summit for 2013. With summits taking place in Ireland, UK, United States, Singapore and mainland Europe this will aid Grafton Media with its global expansion as it plans to open offices in New York and other locations during 2013.
The Web Summit is a series of tech events held in London and Dublin. In 2013, the Web Summit will launch events in New York and San Francisco. Last October’s Dublin Web Summit attracted over 4,200 attendees from 45 countries. Speakers included Tim Armstrong, CEO of AOL; Niklas Zennstrom, founder of Skype; Luke Woods, President of Beats By Dre and over 200 others.The partnership is worth in excess of €150,000 and will see Grafton Media as THE only Creative Technology Agency to be promoted at the Summits taking place around the world this year. There will also be a further 20 “Pub Summits” across Europe and the USA which Grafton Media will also be involved in.
With its headquarters in Dublin and two offices in the UK (Manchester and London), Grafton Media see this as a unique opportunity. Dave Antrobus, Joint Managing Director said of the sponsorship, “Grafton Media are thrilled to be partnering with the Web Summit for 2013. We immediately saw the advantages of being associated with such a fantastic and fast growing brand as the Web Summit and see it as a great opportunity to showcase Grafton Media in both markets that we already exist in and ones that we hope to develop in over the next twelve months.”
Paddy Cosgrave of Web Summit said of the deal, “We are delighted to have Grafton Media on board as a partner for 2013 it is a great endorsement of the Web Summit as a platform to do business. This year we are entering new markets and it is great to have another Irish company by our side.”
