Web Summit is surely one of the most impressive events in the world of new disruptive technologies. Its story has started in 2010, with the goal to promote the idea of connecting the technology community with all industries, both old and new. Since then, Web Summit has evolved into the “largest technology conference in the world”.

And it is growing and developing more and more now. Web Summit is a place which gathers the representatives from startups with pitching ideas, investors looking for the next successful projects, tech thinkers eager to discuss the latest trends, and celebrities giving their visions for the future.

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. The New York Times, The Guardian, The Financial Times and many others honoured print media highly appreciate the work of the conference and note its significance for the industry.
