Web Summit events have gathered half a million people across Web Summit in Lisbon, Collision in North America and RISE in Asia since the company’s beginnings as a 150-person conference in Dublin in 2009. Our mission has been to create software that improves conferences and enables meaningful connections between the CEOs, founders, investors, politicians, cultural figureheads and members of the media who are reshaping the world.

Why will 30,000+ people gather in Rio de Janeiro?

Three reasons: incredible speakers eager to share expertise, unparalleled networking opportunities with entrepreneurs, and proprietary software that will maximize your experience.

South American tech is thriving, and the startup ecosystem in Brazil is holding its own amid a LatAm funding downturn. That’s why we think there’s no better city to host a South American gathering of the global tech community than Rio.

Take part in an exciting event experience. Join us in Rio de Janeiro.
