The small town of Peniche, is certainly one of the most popular destinations for surfers worldwide, thanks to the quality of its waves during the 12 months of the calendar year. In parallel, Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, has managed to carve out an important space in the technology sector becoming a renowned spot among the European Digital Nomads. Because Boa Onda Guesthouse Peniche is only 1 hour from Lisbon, we want to dedicate this article to the most important technology event in Europe: the Web Summit that is going to be held next November from the 5th to the 9th. For those who want to combine the Web Summit 2018 with a few days of surfing our surf school in Peniche may represent the solution you were looking for!
WHAT IS THE WEB SUMMIT
First of all, you need to understand exactly what the Web Summit is and what it was able to generate in just 8 years. This event, which was originally called the Dublin Web Summit, is a technology conference held annually since the 2009-2010 season. This conference was founded in Ireland, in Dublin for accuracy and veins as founding members:
- Paddy Cosgrave,
- David Kelly,
- Hickey daire
The Web Summit, is a conference focused on technology, the Internet, digital marketing and online services. The main multinationals of this industry participate, as well as fierce startups in carving out a place of prestige within the digital industry. For this reason the size of the companies varies, and can go from the Fortune 500 companies to more limited technological realities such as startups.
Web Summit 2018 Location
The Web Summit takes place in Lisbon at the Altice Arena. The original location was Dublin but was later changed for organizational reasons. In fact, since the year 2016, the conference has moved to Lisbon on the decision of the CEO, Paddy Cosgrave.
Since moving to Lisbon, the numbers of the event have soared up to touch the 59,000 participants of the 2017 edition. Lisbon represents a city with a strong historical, cultural and tourist attraction. Probably for all the previous reasons, who attends the event is more stimulated to enjoy the great Portuguese weather than spending few days in the rainy Ireland. Also for this reason we can advise you to visit Peniche, and enjoy the best surfspots in Europe.
Going into detail, the Web Summit 2018 takes place at the Altice Arena which represents, as the name implies, an indoor arena. This was built during the Expo 1998, and was designed by architect Regino Cruz in collaboration with the Office of SOM architecture (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill). It has the great advantage of being just a few metro stops from the airport. You can also easily reach it by taxi or bus. Since the Arena was built, it hosts several activities including:
- sport events;
