Web Summit Lisbon 2023

The State of Qatar has participated in the Web Summit Lisbon 2023 from 13-16 November in preparation for hosting five editions of the event in Doha over the next five years, commencing from February 2024. The event reflects Qatar’s efforts to promote and bolster the technology sector and diversify the economy, as outlined in the Qatar National Vision 2030 (QNV 2030).

The State of Qatar’s participation aims to highlight the country’s state-of-the-art technical infrastructure and amenities, well-suited for hosting major global events, and the strategic vision to become the region’s leading technology hub, and an ideal destination for launching and scaling startups.

The Upcoming Web Summit in Qatar

The Web Summit Qatar 2024 will be held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) from 26 to 29 February 2024. Qatar is scheduled to host the summit five times—from 2024 to 2028.

With Qatar having secured the hosting rights for this global event, it will be the first time Web Summit is held in the Middle East. The upcoming hosting of Web Summit is a testament to the progress the State of Qatar has made in the development of its technology sector, its advanced technical infrastructure, and its ongoing efforts to invest in future growth.

“Just as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 was the tournament for all Arabs, we are keen to make Qatar’s hosting of the Web Summit an opportunity for the youth in the Arab world to showcase their initiatives, abilities and talents on a global stage; and to benefit from and interact with this remarkable global forum.”
