A little less than a month from the event’s kick-off, the inaugural Web Summit Rio event is fully sold out.

We’re excited to announce that Web Summit Rio – set to take place at Rio de Janeiro’s Riocentro from May 1-4, 2023 – is officially sold out.

This extraordinary response confirms the appetite for what will be the biggest tech event in Brazil, taking place in a convention center with almost 87,000 square meters of indoor space.

Attendees look forward to a stellar 300-plus speaker lineup

With people from 100 countries expected to attend Web Summit Rio – including more than 500 world-leading investors and 500-plus members of the media – this event will be the hottest ticket in Brazil for people looking to immerse themselves in the latest trends in tech and beyond.

Attendees can look forward to an impressive roster of speakers, including Black Lives Matter co-founder Ayọ Tometi and Nubank founder and CEO David Vélez. You won’t want to miss the insights and experiences these industry leaders have to share.

Joining the Web Summit family

Web Summit Rio is part of our roster of international events, which includes our North American event, Collision; RISE in Hong Kong; Web Summit, our long-running flagship event held every November in Lisbon; and the newly announced Web Summit Qatar, taking place in early 2024.

Web Summit is excited to have established Web Summit Rio in South America, further expanding our global presence.

Brazil’s booming tech and startup economy

With its rapidly expanding tech and startup economy, Brazil is the perfect location for Web Summit Rio, which will gather more than 900 next-generation startups.

Brazil is already home to 21 unicorns – a fact that highlights the country’s potential and growth in the tech industry. Furthermore, Rio de Janeiro has gained international recognition as a startup hub, making it an ideal city for hosting this event.

Web Summit Rio is already poised to become the largest tech event in Brazil, a nation boasting the world’s ninth-largest economy. We look forward to growing more with each year.

Although tickets for Web Summit Rio are sold out, the excitement doesn’t end have to end here. We’re back in 2024, so pre-register for your Web Summit 2024 ticket now!
