The Web Summit is a conference about technology that is held every year with the intention that the major brands in this market publicize their future projects, and it also offers a great opportunity to retailers to enter this difficult world. Currently, the event is being held in Lisbon, after two really successful years, which is why a series of agreements were made with the rulers of this country to maintain the exclusivity for a few more years.
