Since 2009, Web Summit has grown from a 400-attendee event in Dublin to “one of the biggest tech conferences in the world” [The Guardian]. Last year, over 70,000 people from more than 160 countries traveled to Lisbon to be a part of an unparalleled networking experience. Web Summit has become a global nexus for tech’s most brilliant minds, its most dynamic entrepreneurs, its die-hard advocates, and its fiercest critics. But the best way to understand Web Summit? Experience it for yourself.

Web Summit 2019 will be held in the Altice Arena (formerly known as MEO Arena) in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Altice Arena can be easily accessed by Metro, bus, taxi, or train, and is a short car ride from Lisbon Portela Airport. Our essentials guide is full of useful information, and will be released closer to the time on the event. Until then, check out our transport blog from last year’s Web Summit.
