EPIC is the Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin and it has used both digital and offline channels to become extremely adept at destination marketing, winning several awards along the way. Challenging the notion that museums are dreary rooms full of dusty artifacts, EPIC tells the story of Ireland's heritage using a goldmine of digital, immersive stories that become a content marketer's dream. 

Aileesh Carew, CEO at ⁠EPIC ⁠(and a DMI graduate) joins ⁠⁠Will Francis⁠⁠⁠ to explore how ambient digital marketing has led to strong word-of-mouth promotion of the museum as a top European tourist destination of choice.
