This year OFFSET is delighted to announce a new collaboration with innovation giants Accenture, with a dedicated stage over the three days packed full of talks, panels and discussions. Entitled Innovation by Design, the programme for this stage is set to be announced next week but here is just a taste of what to expect.


OFFSET 2016 is just around the corner and we are excited to announce a new third stage in partnership with Accenture Ireland and their new Centre for Innovation. Spread over the three days and featuring everything from AI and Customer Insights to Music in a Digital Age and Living Organisations this stage is certainly not to be missed. Take the time to immerse yourself in this bonus learning and networking opportunities with innovators from other creative industries, and experience a taste of what Accenture Ireland has to offer.

First up on the Friday, will be a discussion on key design trends for 2016 (and hopefully suggestions on how to make the most of them!) The leading global design firm Fjord (part of Accenture Interactive) will delve into the major ideas shaping markets next year and what to expect.

Looking to Saturday of OFFSET, the Accenture Stage is jam packed featuring talks and panels looking at The Power of Data and Design.

In a world of hyper-connectivity, our ever-increasing volume of big data is only useful if it drives insights that can be easily comprehended. And that is, to a great extent, dependent on how well they’re visualised.

This panel will look at Design as a powerful visual storytelling tool to craft clear, entertaining and emotionally engaging narratives told via graphics rather than print.


Over the course of the weekend expect some of our main stage speakers to join the Accenture Stage to chat about everything from designing for the real world to new technologies.

If you want to find out more about Accenture and what they do visit them in the OFFSET foyer over the course of the weekend.
