I want to speak or propose a speaker for Web Summit.

We pride ourselves on putting the leading voices from technology on stage at our events. We’re always looking to collaborate with more founders and CEOs to create engaging content for our attendees.

Can I resell my Web Summit tickets?

As laid out in our Terms and Conditions, you cannot sell your Web Summit ticket. Doing so will result in a void ticket and the ticket holder will not gain entry into the event. This also applies to our subsidised tickets (Women in Tech, Student Scholarship, Open Source). If you have secured a complimentary ticket but have already bought a ticket, you are not eligible for a refund. For more information, please email tickets@websummit.com.

Is there a schedule available?

A detailed schedule will be made available closer to the event. It will be available on our website and in our attendee app.

I need a visa to attend, can you help me?

While we will not engage directly with your relevant embassy, we will happily send you an invitation letter once you purchase your ticket. To receive your letter, please email us at tickets@websummit.com with your booking reference. Please note that your embassy will require notice before issuing your visa.
