Web Summit 2021 at Altice Arena & Fil, Lisbon November 1-4 // Register + Attend Online

Join us in November. Web Summit brings together the people and companies redefining the global tech industry.


Web Summit will return to Lisbon this year. Why will a global community gather in Lisbon? Three reasons: incredible speakers, unparalleled networking opportunities, and proprietary software that will maximize your experience.

Carolina Rendeiro, CEO & Founder of Connect2Global will be presenting the Opening Remarks on Thursday, November 4th at 10:00am for 10 minutes. Carolina is a high-energy professional with strong expertise in international development, with a special focus on international marketing and business development. She has a proven ability to engage with members of the public and private sectors.


In The Community >>

Web Summit will continue to organise community engagement programmes, as it has done for previous conferences. Below, learn about the flagship initiatives we’ve operated over the years. We’re working with the Portuguese authorities to expand our community reach, and we’ll be launching new initiatives in Portugal soon.

Women in Tech >>

We rolled out our women in tech initiatives, as we have done for previous editions of Web Summit. These are aimed at groups of women who promote and support female leadership in all sectors of entrepreneurial life in Portugal. Web Summit has a strong commitment to supporting the empowerment of women, and our women in tech programme is helping to transform the role of women in the Portuguese business community.

Inspire >>

Our INSPIRE programme offers students the chance to access Web Summit for free. Since its kickoff at Web Summit 2016, INSPIRE has benefitted tens of thousands of students. In 2019, we welcomed more than 5,000 students in Lisbon and, in 2021, we hope to grow the programme by working with the Portuguese Education authorities. The programme is open to all Portuguese universities, and interested students can become part of the largest gathering of world leaders that takes place in Portugal.


Our developers ticket initiative is all about giving back to the community. We provide tickets to Web Summit for software developers in Portugal and abroad, giving them access to the event's talks, masterclasses, roundtables and networking sessions. It is an opportunity for developers to network and learn from CEOs and founders, top speakers, exciting startups, influential tech investors, and experts in their field.

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT >> With expert masterclasses and roundtables on the schedule, Web Summit is buzzing with insights from the leaders of all industries touched by tech. Hear from a balanced and enticing speaker line-up covering thought-provoking conversations and pressing topics you need to learn all about.


Our attendees want to see what’s out there – and what’s in the pipeline – in the world of tech. Join us in Lisbon and connect with who you need to meet to drive your business forward. Use our software to discover new contacts, then get to the event floor and generate precious leads.

We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon

In 2016, the city of Lisbon gave us an incredible welcome, and it’s helped make Web Summit a truly unforgettable event year after year ever since. Portugal is still our home, and in 2020 we got to share it with the rest of the world online. We can’t wait to return to Lisbon in 2021. Join us this November.
