Why will 15,000+ people gather in Qatar?

Web Summit Qatar helps to connect a new generation of founders in the Middle East to investors, journalists and more around the world. We’re proud of our track record when it comes to live events. The Guardian called us “Glastonbury for geeks”. Al Jazeera has said we run “The largest gathering of international start-ups in the Middle East.”
