Web Summit 2023 is coming, bringing with it not only a meeting of brilliant minds, but also a unique opportunity for participants to experience innovation in a truly memorable way. The experience of strolling along the Tagus River allows you to discover the city, providing unforgettable memories for you and your team.
How did the Web Summit start?
The world’s largest technology conference began in 2009 and its growing relevance in the world is clear to see. For the first five years it was held in the Irish capital. However, due to its growing importance, the first edition was announced in Lisbon in 2015. Since then, the event has been held in Portugal every year, and the government has decided to extend this contract until 2028.
The Web Summit attracts, above all, representatives of the biggest technology companies, as well as experts in the field of technology, European political leaders and other renowned figures.
Web Summit 2023
This year’s edition confirms the presence of more than 70,0000 participants from over 160 countries. Thus, the main motivations for gathering at this event are: “incredible speakers, unparalleled networking opportunities and proprietary software that will maximize your experience.”
This year’s Web Summit features names such as Kuo Zhang – President Alibaba.com, China; Jimmy Wales – Founder Wikipedia, United States; Melanie Nakagawa – Director of Sustainability Microsoft, United States; Marshmello – DJ and Producer, United States; Andrew McAfee – Principal Research Scientist MIT, United States, among others.
