What we do

Web Summit organises three technology events across the globe. Web Summit, held in Lisbon, is the company’s flagship event. Collision, based in Toronto, is its North American gathering while RISE is its Asian one.

Our global events

With a strong focus on connecting the right people at the right time, each of these gatherings brings together the most inspirational speakers, promising startups, prominent multinationals, active investors, and enthusiastic attendees.

Web Summit events draw the biggest names with partners including Microsoft, Siemens and Lenovo, and talks from Google, Apple and Airbnb amongst many others. 

Previous speakers include tech titans Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey to cultural ambassadors Dr Jane Goodall and Amy Poehler, prominent political figures Al Gore and Margrethe Vestager, and celebrities like Seth Rogen and Nicole Kidman.
