The announcement was made via Twitter – Paddy Cosgrave, Web Summit’s CEO, has confirmed the 2020 edition in Lisbon.
This mega technology event was initially scheduled to the Portuguese capital, following the previous editions, but Covid-19 pandemic has caused the organisers to consider converting it to a 100% digital event. Being now confirmed, Web Summit 2020 will take place in Altice Arena & FIL, from 2 to 5 November.
What is Web Summit?
Times may be uncertain, but one thing remains true. There’s a simple power in people coming together. Web Summit is a company from Dublin, Ireland, that holds events online and across the world – Web Summit, Collision and RISE. Web Summit brings together people and companies redefining the global tech industry. Forbes has said we run “the best technology conference on the planet”; The Atlantic that Web Summit is “where the future goes to be born”; The New York Times that we assemble “a grand conclave of the tech industry’s high priests.”
