Web Summit started as a tiny 400-person startup conference in 2010. Within five years it had become “world’s largest and most important technology conference”.
Now Web Summit takes its next step. Web Summit is no longer home to a singular conference, but as of 2016 home to over 20 independent conferences. Each with its own stage, schedule, exhibition area, workshops, networking evening events and more. For example, more than 10,000 digital marketers will fly from more than 150 countries to Web Summit. Signal is their conference within Web Summit. For example, more than 10,000 SaaS and enterprise buyers and sellers will be 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. 2016 is just the start of a far larger vision for Web Summit and the conferences on its platform.
There is no longer such a thing as a ‘tech’ industry – just industries that have been affected by tech. Just as the first industrial revolution 250 years ago left an indelible mark on the lives of the people who lived through it, tech is turning upside down everything we thought about work, social interaction, politics and life itself.
This year more than 50,000 tech CEOs, founders, startups, investors and political leaders driving change across the world are coming together in Lisbon for Web Summit. They’ll be looking for answers to the questions posed by the tech revolution we’re living through.
