In how many languages can we describe the Web Summit? We talked to 23 people, from 18 different countries on the last day of the Web Summit 2018, who shared with us their thoughts about the event.

What words come to your mind when you think about the Web Summit? For the 23 people we talked to, who came from 19 different countries, words like “inspirational”, “crowded”, “awesome”, and “informative” came instantly to their minds as we challenged them to sum up the event in one word.

Whether you were more interested in AI, Interactive and immersive technology, extended reality, blockchain solutions, cryptocurrencies, the future of media, or even robotics, the Web Summit’s ecosystem was simply mind-blowing. Brilliant ideas are presented constantly and at a fast-pace, and people couldn’t stop bathing themselves in what really felt like a fountain of wisdom. And for those attending the event, this was the opportunity of a lifetime, either for networking, to find a job, to find investors for their ideas, or simply to learn more about what technology will bring in the very near future.

We spent some hours gathering feedback from as many nationalities as we could in the many different venues the event offered, and we found 23 people, coming from 19 different countries: North Korea, United Kingdom, Italy, USA, Russia, Argentina, Norway, Ukraine, Brazil, Denmark, Israel, France, Belgium, Sweden, Jamaica, Iran, Greece, Switzerland and Holland.
