From 4 to 7 November 2019, the whole world (including our experts :)) will gather in Lisbon for the biggest meeting of geeks : the WebSummit!

This international exhibition, with more than 170 countries represented, has become a must for all lovers of the technological, digital and innovation ecosystem. This year, the “Davos of the Geeks” is expecting more than 70,000 visitors including startups, VCS, journalists and major Tech groups such as Coca-Cola, IBM, Facebook, Google…
As every year, WebSummit 2019 will welcome high-flying speakers such as Guo Ping, Chairman + Rotating CEO, Huawei, Brad Smith, President, Microsoft, Katherine Maher, CEO, Wikipedia or Hans Vestberg, CEO, Verizon.
In addition, Edward Snowden, the NSA’s famous American whistleblower, will also address the audience live from Russia, where he is in exile. Snowden is ready to reveal how he helped build the NSA’s surveillance system that collected millions of phone calls, text messages and emails from American citizens and why he chose to expose it in this way rather than follow the protocol.

The WebSummit will also offer more than 21 conferences and 30 keynotes to focus on the latest trends in innovation and technology.

With the CES of Las Vegas and Shanghai, the NRF of New York and the SXSW of Austin, this is one of the key observation steps for our experts Nicolas Diacono and Guillaume Rio in the drafting of the #CommerceReloaded report and the conference of the same name to be held on 27 February 2020.
