Networking

Imagine gathering the biggest names in international tech for an invaluable networking session. Join us in Doha in 2025 to meet people from across the world, connect, and continue your conversations long into the night.

Inc. says Web Summit has “gamechanging speakers, dynamic content, and great opportunities to network and connect with others”.

Learning and development

With expert masterclasses and roundtable discussions on the schedule, Web Summit Qatar is buzzing with insights from the leaders of all industries touched by tech. Gain insights from an array of speakers covering thought-provoking conversations and pressing topics you won’t want to miss.

As Forbes magazine puts it, Web Summit “bridges the gap between creativity and tech”, and our first-ever Middle Eastern event was no exception.

Join us in Qatar in 2025 to connect with industry leaders who can help drive your business forward. Use our software to discover new contacts, then get to the event floor and generate useful leads.

HuffPost says Web Summit “brings together the people and companies redefining the global tech industry”, and our first Web Summit Qatar event did just that. Join us in 2025 to connect with everyone from CEOs and founders to marketers and developers, and take your business to the next level.

The stand features several large digital screens. 'Snoonu' is printed on one of the walls. Beyond the stand, people roam around what appears to be a busy event floor.

Inspiring content

Alongside tech’s leaders and innovators, we’ve gathered authors, athletes, actors and more to talk about how tech touches their industries. Our world-class speakers have taken to the stage to share their expertise through inspiring talks, interactive Q&As, and masterclasses.

With CNN referring to Web Summit as “Europe’s largest tech event”, Web Summit Qatar is set to become the Middle East’s premier event gathering top speakers from across the globe.
