Summit Overview

Your community can become a better place to live, work and visit!

BallySmart7 Summit Dublin 2025 powered by WowYou Concepts and Rekindle Talent is inviting you to Ireland from:

11th – 15th March 2025

Let us meet in Ireland where five Irish towns – Carlingford, Westport, Tramore, Fethard and Youghal – got transformed via heritage-led regeneration.

Communities have worked to ensure that their town remains vibrant and true to its origin and identity. This is heritage-led town regeneration, where heritage is a resource to promote and create interesting places.

BallySmart7 Dublin 2025 is a groundbreaking four-day international summit focused on heritage-led town regeneration and smart community development. Bringing together traditional authorities (custodians of heritage) and communal commerce teams, the summit aims to foster international collaboration, skills transfer, and the integration of innovative strategies for building smart communities.

Sitting down with the major actors, agencies, and communities, and experiencing knowledge sharing, plus technical know-how transfer on heritage-led regeneration is worth investing your time and resources in.

There is so much value in attending because of all the potential gains to be made. It is indeed an avenue for custodian of culture, heritage agencies, and companies to form partnerships, collaborations with competent and reliable heritage-led regeneration operators post summit.
