AIB will now conduct elements of its Future Sparks Festival event online following recent warnings over COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The event, which brings together business leaders, young entrepreneurs and students, was due to take place in the RDS on March 26th.

AIB has a duty of care for the health and safety of all attendees and given the large numbers that have previously attended both events it has been decided that these events will operate through different formats while still engaging participants from across the country.

Teachers or parents who would like to seek further information should contact the project office on the following:
