Web Summit 2020

Are you expanding your information and communication technologies (ICT) business? Attend the next edition of Web Summit! It takes place in digital format from 2 to 4 December 2020.

Described as “the best technology conference on the planet” by the American magazine Forbes, the Web Summit is by far the event of the year most eagerly anticipated by sector experts! From start-up to major group, over 200 different nationalities attend every year. A real place of learning, the Web Summit also comprises 21 tracks bringing together over 1,000 speakers in a great number of lectures.

Boost your international visibility

In 2019, 12 Brussels-based start-ups had the opportunity to boost their image on our collective stand during the fourth edition of the Web Summit.

This year, due to current health conditions, the event will be virtual. We invite you to attend a series of virtual events to develop your company internationally together with the AWEX (Agence Wallone pour l’export). 

Note, although virtual, space is limited. Sign up asap!
