Watch the Web Summit Rio 2024 trailer

“The giants of the web assemble.”

A large stage viewed from the back of an amphitheatre, over the heads of a large, full audience. No empty seats are visible. The stage appears small because of how far away it is.

– Wall Street Journal

“Web Summit is the World Cup of tech conferences.”

A photograph of Brazilian footballing legend Ronaldo standing in front of a microphone. He appears to be speaking.

– Fortune

“Where the future goes to be born.”

Skyscrapers and other buildings line the waters of Rio de Janeiro's warm-looking Guanabara Bay. The rocky Sugarloaf Mountain is in the background.

– The Atlantic

“The best tech conference on the planet.”

A crowd of seated people. The focus is on one person who is smiling, looking upwards – seemingly at a stage – and clapping.

– Forbes
