The annual tech conference “Web Summit” was held this year in Lisbon from November 7th to 10th. It was the first time that it relocated from its original home in Dublin where it was born in 2009 as an initiative to create a global talking space for tech CEO`s, founders, startups, leaders, etc., to discuss and approach the technological revolution we`re currently at. This year, over 50000 attendees got together in this experience to join to the discussion about the role of technology in every aspect of life from work to social interactions.
The quality of speakers with renowned names such as John Chambers (CEO of “Cisco”), or Luis Figo (former football player and Founder of “Dream Football”) made of the gathering a real learning experience, with conferences about how technology has modify the dynamic of politics, health, sports, business and other contexts of human interaction, and with that in consideration discuss about the actions tech influencers must take in order to acknowledge the power new technologies have to improve people’s lives, increase business opportunities and increase interrelations at individual and institutional levels.
