Lisbon, here we are! We’ve been waiting to meet you. And to be honest, our first impression of Web Summit is that this event is really, really, but I mean reaaaaaally huge:
The Centre stage at Altice Arena was a welcoming spot for all attendees: investors, startups, and their groundbreaking ideas, cutting-edge technology, and networking opportunities.
With their speeches and guest appearances, Web Summit CEO Katherine Maher, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, and the Portuguese Minister of Economy were the “headliners” of the opening night.
Keynote speakers on the first day set the tone for a whole week and demonstrated what Web Summit is about. It is all about exchange (ideas, experiences, and solutions) and synergy (connection, networking, and meeting.
On the first night of the Web Summit, it was clear that two major topics were at play: AI and its impact on the industry and humanity and empowering and supporting startups worldwide. (the second one is really important for BCMS).
Web Summit Opening Day behind the scenes
I know that Web Summit is one of the biggest tech conferences in the world, but I did not expect that entering the opening day would take more than 45 minutes. 😅
It looked more like we were waiting in line for a rockstar concert, but the entrance was worth it.
Anyway, here are tips for opening day at the Web Summit:
Wear comfortable shoes
Prepare your patience
Enjoy the program
Try drinks and food
Prepare for the Night Summit (party)
BCMS exhibition day at Web Summit
The Web Summit continues with the program. In the next 3 days, there will be lectures, workshops, panels, start-up pitches, presentations, and much networking.
BCMS will present its headless CMS at the stand on Thursday, November 16, at Pavilion 4 at the boot A715.
