LISBON (Reuters) – Europe’s biggest technology conference, the Web Summit, will return to Lisbon in full force as a massive in-person event in 2021 after the coronavirus pandemic forced it to go fully online this year.
“The venue is booked,” the conference’s founder Paddy Cosgrave told Reuters on Wednesday in an interview. “I think by November (next year) the Web Summit will be happening in-person and I can’t wait.”
The event, which moved from Dublin to the Portuguese capital in 2016, attracts about 70,000 participants every year, drawing speakers from leading global tech companies and startups, as well as politicians.
But due to the outbreak, which has forced the cancellation or postponement of many major events, this year’s Web Summit will be held online next week.
