International Salons

Inspirefest is going on the road again with a series of informal gatherings for our international community - mini-Inspirefests, if you will. Come meet the team and get a sneak preview ahead of the main event in Dublin, June 2018.

Pay It Forward

Not all under-18s have the fortune to be brought by a parent to Inspirefest. Do consider sponsoring a Bursary to bring 10 young people or a disadvantaged group to Inspirefest. We know this isn’t why you’ll do it, but you will get branding and nice PR from the Inspirefest team to boot!
