Purpose and Mission
Web Summit has become “Europe’s largest and most important technology marketplace,” a crossroads for the world’s largest buyers and sellers of technology, alongside many of the world’s most disruptive emerging technology companies. Web Summit “engineers serendipity” at the scale of 50,000 attendees.
Web Summit was once described as Davos for geeks. More than 53,000 tech CEOs, founders, startups, investors and political leaders driving change around the world came together in Lisbon in 2016. Together with more than 2,000 media attendees, these leaders contemplated answers to the tech revolution’s biggest questions.
