Programme participants

Meet some of the people appearing on the Dublin 2019 programme

Dublin 2019’s programme team is confirming programme participants on a rolling basis (in small batches) rather than all at once in the spring. We are thrilled to share the preliminary list of early confirmed participants who will be joining us next year in Dublin. The full list will be available in April 2019. Over the coming months, more programme participants will be confirmed with more names announced soon!

Note: Would you like to be considered for programming? Please fill in our Programme Participant Query Form to request a survey and to give your consent to be contacted contacted by the Dublin 2019 Programme Team. Due to data privacy laws (GDPR), we cannot consider anyone for programming who has not submitted this form. While we want to be as inclusive as possible and to consider everyone who is interested in being on programme, we will receive more requests to be on programme than we can accommodate. This means that we will not be able to confirm all participant requests.

Here is our list of early list of confirmed programme participants:
