LISBON, NOVEMBER 6-9, 2017

“Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster."

- Elon Musk, Tesla and SpaceX CEO


The tech industry no longer exists. Welcome to a world undeniably driven and disrupted by technology. At The Forum, prime ministers, ministers and mayors from around the world will gather alongside the CEOs, CTOs and more of the world’s leading companies to discuss how technology is reshaping our world.
The Forum is an invite-only gathering of the 500 top decision makers at Web Summit, drawn from our more than 60,000 attendees.

More About The Forum


Whether it be the influence of artificial intelligence and automation on job markets, digital platforms’ complicity in the spread of “fake news”, or social media’s mobilisation of populist elements across the political spectrum, tech has been the catalyst for an indelible shift in the way citizens of the world interact – on every level.

This November at Web Summit – “Davos for Geeks” (Bloomberg) and “where the future goes to be born” (the Atlantic) – a select cohort of the world’s forward-thinking politicians and policy-makers will come together with the most influential CEOs, founders, academics and celebrated cultural icons.

Through a series of off-the-record panel discussions and roundtables, this group will seek answers to the most pressing questions of our time.

The world we knew is gone. Will we see its replacement at The Forum?
