We are proud to announce that the payment provider, Konnect, will be at the 2022 Web Summit, the most important technology conference of the year. Held in Lisbon, Portugal, this year’s conference will bring together 70,000 attendees, 2,000 startups, and 900 speakers that are reshaping the global tech sector.
Established in 2009 by Paddy Cosgrave, David Kelly, and Daire Hickey, Web Summit was initially hosted in Dublin, Ireland, until 2016, when it permanently relocated to Lisbon. With a focus on internet technology, new technologies, and venture capitalism, and with partners that include Fortune 500 firms, the event has been hailed as the most important tech event in the world.
Some of the guest speakers have included notable CEOs, academics and politicians such as Elon Musk, Al Gore, Stephen Hawking and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.
This year, the Web Summit exhibition space at the Altice Arena will welcome attendees from more than 150 countries, from Tuesday, November 1 through Friday, November 4. Key guest speakers will include: António Costa, the prime minister of Portugal, Nik Storonsky founder and CEO of Revolut, Changpeng Zhao co-founder and CEO of Binance, Nathan Blecharczyk co-founder and chief strategy officer of Airbnb and many more prominent tech figures.
We are excited to exhibit at this year’s conference and to join the world’s largest gathering of entrepreneurs and business thinkers. This is a great opportunity for the Konnect team to showcase its services and to network with the world’s leading techies and investors in person. We want to meet as many people as we can, so drop by our booth and we will give you personalized recommendations for your business on how to integrate Konnect for frictionless cross-border payments.
