Web Summit’s hidden value

When people think of Web Summit, they think of top speakers, huge product launches, and innovations from the tech companies leading the industry. They’re absolutely right, but for many people, the real value of Web Summit is the personal and professional development they gain on the conference floor.

Should I go to Web Summit?

Last year over 70,000 people attended Web Summit. Many of our attendees come from the world’s most successful companies to meet, collaborate with, and learn from others in their own field. We’ve focused on creating the best networking experience to make Web Summit as valuable as possible for our attendees. Take a look at what we’re offering.

Market research

You’ve got the biggest names in the business together on one exhibition floor — explore a little. Web Summit is a great place to see what the competition is up to, talk to others in the industry and compare techniques and targets. You’ve got three days and a thousand questions — what are you waiting for?

Lead generation

Our attendees are experts in their industries and they’re all looking for the next big thing. Does your company have it? Talk to future customers, listen to their feedback, and keep in touch by collecting their details using our scanning function. Put your brand in the minds of real leads as you explore the floor, and start the customer relationship in a more personal way.

With 70,000 others in the room, meeting people couldn’t be easier at Web Summit. But how do you know you’re meeting the right ones? We’ve streamlined our process to make sure you’re connecting with the people best placed to help you achieve your goals. From industry-specific meetups, lounges, and workshops, to app recommendations for new connections, to our after-hours events at Night Summit — there’s no end to the networking opportunities.

Professional development

Yes, you’ll be spreading the word about your company and its products, but take some time to learn something new before you leave. We’ve got more than 600 speakers, each one at the forefront of their industry — you’ll hear from all of them over three days of fascinating talks. Between stage sessions, make sure to check out our partner-powered workshops and curated roundtable discussions. Last year, AWS experts ran a series of developer workshops which were some of the most favourited sessions of the event. Bring new skills, contacts, and ideas back to the office with you.


Workshops covering a huge variety of topics run across all three days of Web Summit.

November may seem far away, but now is the best time to buy tickets. Super early bird tickets are currently on sale, and we're offering group rates to make it more cost-effective to get your employees on the Web Summit floor.
