Web Summit 2018
What is Web Summit?
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. Web Summit has grown to become the “largest technology conference in the world”.
No conference has ever grown so large so fast. But we also pride ourselves in organising the “best technology conference on the planet”.
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.
