Web Summit Lisbon is the largest tech conference in the world. It takes place from the 5th November until the 8th of November. It has been described as “Davos for Geeks”, “the best tech conference on the planet” and “Glastonbury for Geeks.” In just six short years it has seen astronomic growth with attendee numbers rising from 400 to its current number of over 70,000. This year’s conference will see 1,200 speakers, 68% of attendees will be in senior management positions, over 2600 journalists will be in attendance and over 170 countries will be represented at Web Summit Lisbon. It truly is a global technology conference. Web Summit Lisbon has a little bit of everything for anybody interested in technology. If you want to hear the latest and greatest from some of the best tech entrepreneurs there are more than 1000 speakers over the four-day conference. If you’re an investor looking to invest in the next up and coming company then Web Summit Lisbon is the place to be. Numerous successful companies including Uber have received funding from attending the Web Summit. Likewise, if you are a Start Up looking to access funding there are plenty of investors interested in hearing your story. This year’s Web Summit promises to be bigger and better than any other year to date.

Excellent spectacle

Very much worth the visit, excellent way to meet and greet potential new talent for your own company and to keep up with what is happening in the tech arena in general. The sheer scale alone is worth a trip. Networking at the event was seamless also .
