In your timezone (EDT): Mon Nov 1 4:00am - Thu Nov 4 1:00pm
Location Altice Arena
Rossio dos Olivais, 1990-231 Lisboa, Portugal
Region EMEA

We’re a company from Dublin, Ireland, that holds events across the world: Web Summit in Lisbon and Tokyo, Collision in Toronto, and RISE in Kuala Lumpur.

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.”

At a time of great uncertainty for many industries and indeed, the world itself, we gather the founders and CEOs of technology companies, fast-growing startups, policymakers and heads of state to ask a simple question: Where to next?
