In a Facebook post published at 6 am on Tuesday morning, it was announced that Web Summit will once again host a conference in Ireland. The company will bring its MoneyConf to Dublin next year. 

MoneyConf is Web Summit's FinTech conference, which is currently taking place in Madrid. No further information has been provided at this time, however, a press conference will take place on June 22nd at the Shelbourne Hotel.

"We're hosting a public press conference to say more about our future, and our past, on Thursday June 22 in the Shelbourne Hotel from 8am-9:15am. Light breakfast and coffee for all."

The following message was posted onto the Web Summit Facebook earlier today. 

At present, MoneyConf hosts around 1,800 attendees. This is significantly smaller than the 42,000 people that attended 2015's Web Summit in the RDS across three days. Some 53,000 people attended the first Web Summit event in Lisbon last November. 

Web Summit hosts a number of events around the world including Collision in New Orleans, RISE in Hong Kong, SURGE in Bangladesh and Web Summit in Lisbon.
