One Week Until Web Summit Begins in Lisbon

The 2019 edition of Web Summit will kick off in Lisbon next week, marking the tenth instalment of the world-renowned technology conference.

Running from 4th-7th November at the Altice Arena, Web Summit is set to bring together more than 70,000 attendees from all around the world. They include high-ranking executives, growing startup founders, influential investors and international journalists.

Several Google representatives, like Chief Sustainability Officer Kate Brandt, are appearing as speakers, as well as Julien Codorniou and Jay Sullivan from Facebook.

Microsoft President Brad Smith is returning for the second consecutive year, while CEO of App Annie Ted Krantz will be presenting and taking part in a panel discussion on Tuesday.

Web Summit organisers said in a statement: “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?”

Global Dating Insights is all set to host its first international Networking Drinks on 5th November from 6pm. The event is taking place at the Myriad Hotel, just five minutes away from the Web Summit venue.

Tickets for GDI Networking drinks are free, but those who wish to attend are required to register on EventBrite before arriving.
