What is the Web Summit?
Paddy Cosgrave came up with the idea of the Web Summit as a networking event in Dublin two years ago. It brought together leading tech company founders with business leaders, public figures (including heads of state), and members of the public.
Attendees include entrepreneurs, engineers, inventors and people who work in internet start-up companies. The speakers have included the founders of Twitter, YouTube and Skype.to a conference Dublin two years ago.
Since the first Web Summit it has grown faster than any technology conference in Europe. From 500 attendees from all over Europe in 2010, the Summit tripled in size in 2011 to over 1,500 from across the world.
