In the fall of 2013, Leading Cities led a mission to Ireland focusing on the transformation of Dublin into a center for technology and innovation businesses looking for a European HQ. During the Mission, delegates met with high ranking members of Irish government, local business leaders and entrepreneurs and organizations active in Ireland’s economic recovery. Delegates had a private dinner with Prime Minister Enda Kenny, hosted discussions with academics and social commentators and participated in a summit on the Irish innovation economy hosted by SiliconRepublic.
