Very impressive organization.
Web Summit was a good opportunity and an excellent platform to make our report visible. I made many connections for follow-up.

This event is just show. No real value for most startups & entrepreneurs
I'd always recommend to look for smaller, more private conferences. Web summit definitely has a large gap between the 70k attendees, and the 100+ VIPS, that usually keep being for themselves. web summit even created exclusive sub-events, to shield the masses away from a small group of alpha's. That's really not the spirit.

It was great opportunity for our startup.
We found partners and expect to make some deals with them this year. It was great experience for us.

Great opportunities for startups
Great Event with lots of opportunities to network, to learn from each other. Would be better with less administration work for an exhibitor. Appreciate very much that online resources as recap of the Summit. For those who didn't have time to attend is great!

Web Summit Networking Tips
Web Summit 2020 was a great opportunity for our brand and business. With a conference this large it is important to have a plan and know what you want to accomplish otherwise it is easy to get caught up and overwhelmed. if you attend Web Summit (I believe everyone should at least once) put a plan in place for each day and allow yourself to rock it, also allow yourself some exploration and free time because that is the best way to make meaningful connections and be pleasantly surprised.

Good for first time, would go again if they add networking sessions per industry!
Attended as part of Booking.com women in tech program. It's great to get to discover startups from around the world that I would otherwise not have known. Very pricey without the program tickets. However good business opportunities, some very interesting talks though don't use all your time on them, get to network! I didn't like the Night summit, more of a drinking afterwork among colleagues from big companies exhibiting than real networking opportunities, sadly.

My first Web Summit was sensational.
This was my first time to attend Web Summit and it was my first time in Europe. Such an amazing experience. The venue and city of Lisbon was phenomenal. I was most impressed with the fact 70k people attended and it was so well organized. I thought the sessions were top rate. I attended many of the startup sessions specifically. We were also a part of the Startup Alpha and it was very valuable. We were most interested in testing our marketing message for our startup. Very impressive!

Mid business opportunity
I got the impression that a lot of attendees came to spend a good time, not at work to do business. It seems like if you are not a Startup or a Global corporate company you may not bring back a lot of business contacts and opportunities and just memories about good time spent in Lisboa.
