About The Event

Web Summit is “where the future goes to be born”

Web Summit events have gathered half a million people across Web Summit in Lisbon, Collision in North America and RISE in Asia since the company’s beginnings as a 150-person conference in Dublin in 2009. Our mission has been to create software that improves conferences and enables meaningful connections between the CEOs, founders, investors, politicians, cultural figureheads and members of the media who are reshaping the world.

Why will 20,000+ gather in Rio de Janeiro?

Three reasons:

  • incredible speakers eager to share expertise
  • unparalleled networking opportunities with entrepreneurs
  • proprietary software that will maximize your experience

South American tech is on fire, and Brazil is probably the hottest startup country in the world right now. It’s time South America had its own global gathering of the tech community. And we think there’s no better city to host it in than Rio.

Be one of the first to take part in a brand new event experience. Join us in Rio de Janeiro in May.
