Web Summit 2022

November 1-4, 2022 | Portugal

Web Summit 2022
We’re a company from Dublin, Ireland, that holds events across the world: Web Summit in Lisbon, Web Summit Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Collision in Toronto, and RISE in Hong Kong. Politico has said we run “the world’s premier tech conference”, the Atlantic that Web Summit is “where the future goes to be born”, and the New York Times that we assemble “a grand conclave of the tech industry’s high priests.” At a time of great uncertainty for many industries and, indeed, the world itself, we gather the founders and CEOs of technology companies, fast-growing startups, policymakers, and heads of state to ask a simple question: Where to next?

Spotlight

OTT consumption is on the rise largely because of unhappy pay-TV customers. 73% feel cable companies are predators and take advantage of the lack of pay-tv choices available and 53% would leave providers if they had a chance. The combination of unhappiness with pay-tv companies and variety of viewing choices with OTT services results in pay-TV’s dropping market share. 20 years ago, cable TV owned 98% of the market share – a number that has been nearly cut in half today.While OTT subscribers make up the smallest percentage of the market today, that number is predicted to skyrocket in the next five years. Customers prefer OTT services for a variety of reasons, particularly because of the number of pricing and viewing options offered. They are no longer bound to stingy, pricey contracts with limited options to choose from.
