All roads lead to the Lisbon Web Summit

Almost 45 thousand tech enthusiasts, from over 150 countries, are attending the Lisbon Web Summit, taking place in Lisbon, from 7 to 10 November. Exago’s team is also here, to learn about the latest trends and share insights with leaders and managers from all the major industries touched by technological innovation.

Among the speakers are John Chambers, executive chairman of Cisco Systems; Linda Boff, General Electric’s chief marketing officer; and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, founder of HitRECord.

Having started in 2010 with just 400 participants, the Web Summit is now one of the most important technology conferences in the world. In the 2016 edition, the summit left Dublin and now reaches new dimensions with 21 independent conferences, each with its own stage in the Feira Internacional de Lisboa.
