Web Summit 2019 flashback

Some facts and figures

Those who were in Lisbon between November 4th and 7th will have felt a hype, hyperactive, cosmopolitan and frenetic atmosphere in the city. For 4 days and 4 nights the city was seized by Web Summit fever. This event, which in its first edition in Dublin in 2012 brought together 2000 people interested in technology, this year brought together, in its eighth edition, 70,469 visitors. The audience from 163 countries concentrated in the Expo area to attend presentations by 1,206 speakers who spoke in 22 scenes. In addition to the other visitors, there were also 2,526 journalists and 1,221 investors.

This crowd came to watch what is described as:

“The best tech conference on the planet” by Forbes, “Davos for geeks” by Bloomberg, while the Guardian and Inc. magazine refer to it respectively; “the technology Olympics” and “the web summit is the largest technology conference in the world”.

Wanting to synthesize everything that has happened and was said in this grand 4-day event is illusory. Here are just a few themes, announcements and start-ups that caught my attention.

2 announcements
