“The largest technology and innovation event in the world” - Globo

In 2023, Web Summit Rio brought together 21,000+ people and the companies redefining the tech industry.

From April 15-18, 2024, we’ll return to Rio de Janeiro for another incredible event, bringing together 30,000+ people. Meet you there?

Web Summit is “where the future goes to be born”

Politico said we run “the world’s premier tech conference”, the Atlantic that Web Summit is “where the future goes to be born”, and Reuters that we assemble “the biggest names in tech and business”.

Web Summit Rio is part of the roster of international events organized by Web Summit, taking to the world stage alongside Web Summit in Lisbon, Web Summit Qatar in Doha, Collision in Toronto and RISE in Hong Kong. In 2023, Web Summit Rio gathered more than 21,000 people at Riocentro.

A large stage viewed over the silhouetted heads of a packed audience. A line of people stands on the stage, facing towards the audience. Confetti fills the air. A large Web Summit Rio logo hangs in the center of the stage. Two screens on either side of the logo read 'That's all for today!'

Web Summit events have gathered half a million people across Web Summit in Lisbon, Collision in North America and RISE in Asia since the company’s beginnings as a 150-person conference in Dublin in 2009. Our mission has been to create software that improves conferences and enables meaningful connections between the CEOs, founders, investors, politicians, cultural figureheads and members of the media who are reshaping the world.

Book tickets for 2024

Why will 30,000+ people gather in Rio de Janeiro?

Three reasons: incredible speakers eager to share expertise, unparalleled networking opportunities with entrepreneurs, and proprietary software that will maximize your experience.

South American tech is on fire, and Brazil is probably the hottest startup country in the world right now. It’s time South America had its own global gathering of the tech community. And we think there’s no better city to host it in than Rio.

Take part in an exciting event experience. Join us in Rio de Janeiro.
