Web Summit started as a simple idea in 2010: Let’s connect the technology community with all industries, both old and new. It seemed to resonate.
Start Date: Nov 5, 2018
End Date: Nov 8, 2018
Web Summit started as a tiny 400-person startup conference in 2010. Within six years it had become “world’s largest and most important technology conference”. Now Web Summit takes its next step.
Web Summit is no longer a singular conference, but as of 2016 home to many independent conferences. Each with its own stage, schedule, exhibition area, workshops, networking evening events and more.
For example, more than 10,000 digital marketers flew from more than 150 countries to Web Summit this year. PandaConf is their conference within Web Summit. More than 10,000 SaaS and enterprise buyers and sellers were also at Web Summit. SaaS Monster is their conference. Both these conferences alone are the largest global gatherings in their respective industries in the world.
Your ticket to Web Summit is now a ticket to access the many conferences hosted under one roof. At Web Summit, you can learn about every major industry touched by technology. You can reach and network with the most important decision-makers, the most disruptive companies, meet your customers and competitors. This is just the start of a far larger vision for Web Summit and the conferences on its platform.
Over 2,600 media from more than 100 markets came to Web Summit in 2017. It’s not just editors from many of the world’s most influential publications, but market-shaping industry reporters from leading technology and trade publications and blogs.
