This year Lisbon will be the city where the world meets, and we are going to be there

The Tech World is anxiously waiting for the Europe´s largest technology marketplace, and we can´t be more exited about it, because this year Web Summit’s Irish founder and chief executive, Paddy Cosgrave chose Lisbon to be the city host of Web Summit 2016. Ok Lisbon is our Home, but we really think that Cosgrave will not regret for choosing one of the most amazing, beautiful, and sunny cities in Europe.

Paddy admits that the Web Summit Lisboa can “act like a magnet and contribute to the local startup scene”. During this past year, we’ve actually seen Lisbon attract more and more international talent, as it has a great quality of life and for Paddy Cosgrave that’s no surprise: “In Lisbon I really like walking around the city, sitting down in a cafe to work and have a great cup of coffee – you guys have really good coffee”.

Our team will be there to make the coverage of this event, known for attracting some of techs star names, from Buro24/7 founder Miroslava Duma to Forbes´ President Mike Perlis, so if is there anyone or anything that you will like to know about, let us know and we will try our best to make it happen.img_3081

More than 50,000 attendees, from 154 countries, as tech CEOs, founders, World-class speakers, leading investors, political leaders, international media and the most promising startups across the globe will come together for four days for the most important startup gathering on the planet and a legendary networking.

NASDAQ has described how “a quarter of a trillion dollars worth of private internet companies” gather in one room

If you want to know how the world is going to be like in 2020, you have to buy your ticket as soon as possible, because Web Summit is where everyone will find the answers to the questions posed by the tech revolution we’re living through. This is definitely not a traditional conference event, this is the place where exciting startups mingle with “crème de la crème ” from the tech, finance, entrepreneurship and innovation investors, because they all will be there.

To take full advantage of an extremely large event, with so much going on at the same time, you have to plan everything, and by everything we mean chose very well the conferences that you want to attend, arrive early otherwise when you get there you may find it full. Contact the people you want to meet and schedule a few meetings throughout the week, otherwise don’t expect  investors to come and meet you. As you see the event is very much what you make of it, and it is up to you to make it worth, because the opportunities are definitely there 😉
