Web Summit: Next visions are beyond the hype. Next visions are about focus.

“The best technology conference on the planet” — it’s hard to think of a greater compliment than that.

Without question, the Web Summit in Lisbon (4–7 November 2019) brings together the who’s who of the international technology and innovation industry: Guo Ping from Huawei, EU Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, Brad Smith from Microsoft, Werner Vogels from Amazon, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, former football world stars Ronaldinho and Eric Cantona — and last but not least Edward Snowden.

More than 70,000 participants from more than 160 countries will be coming to Portugal to discuss smart technologies, global interconnectivity, state regulation, the transformation of society and the future of mobility. And right in the heart of it all: Porsche.

Tech Talks, #nextvisions — and a lot of focus

As an official partner of the Web Summit 2019, we will work with forward-thinkers, beautiful minds and pioneers to bring our visions for sporting mobility to the Altice Arena and the AutoTech Stage (E382, FIL3) in Lisbon, Portugal. Participants include Jan Karnath (CEO & Co-Founder, Gapless), Laurens Laudowicz (Managing Director, Okai), Gideon van Dijk (CEO, Chargetrip), Risto Vahtra (CEO & Founder, High Mobility) and many more.

But at the same time, we want to offer something different during a typical, busy conference with all its hustle and bustle — because #nextvisions are beyond the hype. #nextvisions are about focus.

At the Porsche booth (E382, FIL3) you have the opportunity to deep dive. To switch off. To calm down. To focus. To sort out your thoughts.

Together with Eva Kaczor, Camilla Sacre-Dallerup and various “Unplug Video Sessions,” we invite the visitors of the Web Summit to meditate — openly or in closed groups, in the morning, during lunch break or between inspiring lectures.
