We visited and exhibited at Web Summit, the largest technology marketplace of Europe. It felt like everyone from the whole continent was there to exhibit, discuss, listen and connect.
The overwhelming crowd and the massive amount of information and new faces still keep us under the influence after almost one week. There were more than 53000 attendees, 7000 CEOs and 15000 companies there.
Exhibiting at this level is truly something else. We've met lots of startups and other companies with truly amazing ideas. All exhibitors were curated by the Web Summit team, to keep the standards and the quality of the event high. We had the privilege of exhibiting as an ALPHA startup, with our own stand for one day and the opportunity to attend Mentor Hours.
The exhibition day was really intense, and we tried to keep the vibe on the other two days as well. The experience was unforgettable and we got to know many great people, who gave us important feedback on our work.
Besides the great networking opportunities, there were several mini-conferences running simultaneously, with great talks and lectures. Luckily we also had some time under our hands for a little site seeing, and of course, to attend Night Summits.
We came home with a lot of experience, inspiration and contacts and we promise to write a longer, more detailed report on the occasion, but little time is desperately needed to process the recent events. Keep in touch!
