What is Web Summit?
Forbes has said they run “the best technology conference on the planet”;
The Atlantic has declared the Web Summit is “where the future goes to be born”;
The New York Times stated they assemble “a grand conclave of the tech industry’s high priests.”
At a time of great uncertainty for industry upon industry and the world itself, they gather the founders and CEOs of technology companies, fast-growing startups, policymakers and heads of state to ask a simple question: where to next?
About Web Summit and their commitment to change:
In just nine years, Web Summit has become “the world’s largest and leading technology conference”, but during that time female participation in the tech sector has been and continues to be a significant issue.
In 2016, they started an initiative to even the gender ratio at Web Summit. They gave 10,000 tickets to women around the world, and 18,000 in 2018.
This year, they want to continue their commitment to change and increase gender diversity at events even further. They’re offering 20,000 special tickets to women across their events around the world – Web Summit in Lisbon, Collision in Toronto, MoneyConf in Dublin and RISE in Hong Kong. Over the past few weeks, they’ve also launched their women in tech ticket initiatives for Collision, MoneyConf and RISE.
Please note that only female attendees can gain admission to Web Summit using women in tech tickets.
