Big Data Belfast returns to The ICC Belfast

With support from headline sponsor EY, this year’s conference will present the very latest insights into the world of data, with a variety of speakers and panel sessions across a range of topics including AI & ML, Environmental Sustainability and Governance, Digital Transformation, and Business Analytics.

Now in its 8th year, Big Data Belfast 2022 is also supported by Aflac, Allstate NI, ASOS, Daily Pay, Magnite, MCS Group and Peak 6.

Early bird tickets have been released at and are priced at £75+VAT.

Growing demand

In recent years, adoption of data-driven technologies has grown exponentially. Market intelligence agency Gartner predicts that by 2023, overall adoption of data analytics will increase from 35% (2021) to 50%.

The COVID-19 crisis has further accelerated the adoption of many of these technologies. A 2021 study by Google found that “32% of respondents accelerated or introduced initiatives around building out or improving the use of data analytics and intelligence” as a result of the pandemic.

Big Data Belfast 2022 will be the ideal opportunity for organisations and individuals to connect with; and to learn from innovative business leaders from the technology sector and beyond. Attendees will discover how market-leading organisations are adapting to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Analytics Engines MD Dr Aislinn Rice said: “We’re delighted to be bringing Big Data Belfast to the ICC this May. The conference has been a staple of the Northern Ireland tech event calendar and it’s very exciting to be able to welcome delegates back to our event space after a very successful 2019 conference.”

She added: “We’re also delighted to welcome back sponsors such as EY, Allstate, MCS Group and Invest Northern Ireland. Their continued support is a testament to the incredible impact of the event. We’re also pleased to welcome new sponsors ASOS, Daily Pay, Aflac, Peak 6 and Magnite and we look forward to working with them over the coming months. We have an incredible line-up of technology and business leaders speaking at this year’s event and we’re confident that this is one local audiences won’t want to miss.”

Roger Eigenheer, Head of the UK&I Delivery Centre at EY, the event headline sponsor, said: “We are proud to support Big Data Belfast as headline sponsor for this year’s event. Although the last two years have seen their fair share of challenges, it’s been remarkable to see how understanding big data and its applications has helped to keep communities and vital services connected in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. I have no doubt that this event will continue to bring brilliant ideas to the fore and we are delighted to work with the team at Analytics Engines again.”

Shay Cullen, Director and Head of Data Platforms & Engineering EY, added: “The Big Data Belfast conference has established itself as high watermark both in terms of speakers and the quality of the event itself. We’re fortunate to have a host of pioneers in Northern Ireland across the full spectrum of tech disciplines, and this event is a fantastic opportunity to bring both local and global minds together and we’re very excited to be supporting it as it returns to the ICC.”
