Web Summit will be in Lisbon at Least until 2028 Unless Web Summit pays €3,000,000,000 to the Portuguese Government

Web Summit is staying at least for the next decade in Lisbon, to be more precise, 2028! What happened really?

Web Summit 2017 Will be Even Better says Paddy Cosgrave – Lisbon is So Much Better

Yesterday, Paddy Cosgrave made a surprise visit to Beta-I during the “Startup Accelerators: How startups and corporates are driving the future” presentation. His appearance and subsequent presentation was obviously scheduled for the end of the presentation, but the audience was not expecting it. What did Paddy Cosgrave have to say about We Summit 2016? That it was incredible. Especially in comparison with the previous iterations of the event in Dublin. “The city(Lisbon) just works so much better.” Paddy Cosgrave But still, there were thousands of things that Web Summit had to learn from doing the event for the first time in Lisbon, and wants to improve for the 2017 edition.
