Forbes to host 30 under 30 forum in Limerick in June

Over a decade after its US launch, Forbes 30 Under 30 has now expanded to be an iconic global media franchise – encompassing international events, print magazines, digital lists, regional chapters, social media and a community of more than 10,000 young entrepreneurs and next-generation business leaders in every sector.

The publication will host a new Under 30 Forum in Limerick, Ireland on Monday 26th June 2023. The event will highlight the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the city and the region, its industrial innovation, as well as its investment potential in emerging and future sectors.

“Forbes’ event will allow the world to witness the convergence of young talent, investment opportunities, and industrial innovation, as Limerick continues to shape the future of business in Ireland,” said The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Councillor Francis Foley.

Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council, Dr Pat Daly, added: “Forbes’ Under 30 Forum event will showcase Limerick’s innovation and investment prospects to a global audience. We welcome the event to Limerick as it will shine a spotlight on the city’s thriving business landscape and economic growth.”

Randall Lane, Chief Content Officer for Forbes, highlighted the importance of spotlighting Ireland’s economic success to date, while building on progress further in the future: “The opportunities for business and innovation in Ireland are abundant, and we’re excited to help amplify those on an international scale, gathering the world’s brightest young leaders in the heart of Limerick.”

Held at the Limerick Strand Hotel, the event will gather local entrepreneurs, business school students from throughout the region and Forbes 30 Under 30 honourees – including those from the newly-minted Forbes Under 30 Europe class of 2023. In an effort to place a spotlight on the rich business landscape of Limerick, the event will offer local tours of several of the city’s landmarks.

The Under 30 programme at large is a 365-day global platform, elevated by live summits in the US, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The platform and community continues to expand globally to reflect the young disruptors from around the world who have rewritten rules, reshaped industries, and are breaking ground towards a brighter future.
