The 2019 edition of Web Summit is the tenth instalment of the world-renowned technology conference. It is running until 7th November at the Altice Arena.

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?”
