The Web Summit 2020 edition will be held entirely online from 2 to 4 december due to the constraints generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, although still being formally hosted by the city of Lisbon, to where it moved in 2016 after its initial years in Dublin.

Dubbed “the world’s largest technology conference”, this year’s event will stage the usual mix of tech industry leaders, academics, policymakers and trendsetters, with the likes of Ursula von der Leyen, Ariana Huffington, Eric Yuan (Zoom), Guo Ping (Huawei), Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn co-founder), Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia), Sir Tim Berners-Lee and many others sharing their views with the remote audience.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, President of the Republic, António Costa, Prime Minister, as well as other members of the Portuguese government and the Mayor of Lisbon, Fernando Medina, will also address the summit.
