More than 70,000 people went to the Web Summit and tried to understand where business can move forward at a time of so much uncertainty.
Between the 1st and 4th of November took place the Web Summit 2022 at Altice arena & Fil, in Lisbon. This year, the largest industry platform bringing together founders and executives of technology companies, fast-growing companies, politicians and heads of state brought together more than 70,000 participants from the technology industry – participants from 160 changing countries.
The giants of the computer industry, information technology, fintech, e-commerce, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data transmission technology, the Internet of Things, big data in various industrial sectors such as Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Siemens, Apple, Amazon and many others.
The main objective of the event is to help companies find partners, employees, ideas, development and investments. Also to answer the question that today, in an era of high risks and great uncertainty, is more acute than ever for business: where to move forward? After all, Web Summit attendees are experts in their fields, selecting the necessary products and technologies capable of recognizing the uniqueness and promise of a new startup or company.
An example of this is London-based young company Bringo, which started in 2019 with a highly specialized SMS messaging niche. Within just three years, it entered the world top 10 in terms of traffic volume, concluding cooperation agreements with more than 300 mobile operators and thus expanding its coverage area to almost the entire world. Among its partners are IT giants like Amazon, Tik-Tok and others.
However, time throws up new challenges and new perspectives, as demonstrated by the Lisbon exhibition. The SMS operator yesterday unveiled its latest cybersecurity products. The company helps both well-known brands and ordinary customers with its softwareproviding protection against phishing?? hacking and attempted unauthorized access to personal data. It is the IT industry’s response to the recent increase in attempts to steal money from ordinary Internet service users.
In addition to the exhibition, where each participant can make a statement by telling the whole world the story of their brand, and show investors, of which more than a thousand people came this time, their best products and projects in education, medicine, entertainment, media of communication and analysis.
The summit was attended by over a thousand speakers – representatives of major global companies, politicians and public figures. Among them: Changpeng Zhao, co-founder and CEO of Binance; Lisa Jackson, Apple’s VP of Green Initiatives; Nick Storonsky, founder and CEO of Revolut; António Costa, Prime Minister of Portugal; Noam Chomsky, linguist, philosopher, writer, social critic and activist. They shared their visions for the future: directions and projects to explore, and how to grow companies and make money in a crisis.
Particular attention should be paid to the British Intis Telecom project, which presented the it.com domain zone at the Web Summit. Event visitors could learn more about the advantages of the domain zone, as well as speak with company representatives and guest experts.
Intis Telecom obtained official registrar status this summer and by the end of WEBSUMMIT had sold over 3,000 domain names. Also, everyone could try the new AI domain name generator, which was announced during the event.
This machine learning-based solution helps select domains that are optimal in terms of themes and search engine optimization, thus saving potential corporate and personal website owners time.
the next Web Summit 2023 will take place in Lisbon, in November.
