Web Summit co-founder Paddy Cosgrave is considering more conferences in Ireland, he told the MoneyConf event at the RDS.

"MoneyConf is here for the foreseeable future," he said. "Maybe this will be the first of a number of conferences we do here. Dublin is fantastic for an event of up to about 20,000."

The event has attracted more than 5,000 attendees, mainly from financial and technology companies focused on payments, fraud and crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin.

Mr Cosgrave said Dublin could be a more active conference venue - if it builds a bigger event centre.

"It wouldn't take much to build a venue that would cater to 40,000 or 50,000 people in this city," he said.
