Our commitment to change

We’re committed to changing the gender ratio at our global events, and to empowering women through networking and mentorship. At our event in 2024, 37 percent of attendees were women.

Get women in tech tickets

Attend Web Summit Qatar for just QR199.50 – a 90% saving on general attendee tickets.

Women in tech tickets give you exactly the same benefits as a general attendee ticket, along with a whole host of extras, including exclusive access to our Women in Tech Lounge, targeted masterclasses and roundtables, and more. These tickets come in pairs, so you’re welcome to invite a fellow woman in tech to join you at Web Summit Qatar.

Please note: As part of our commitment to change, and in accordance with Part C of our terms and conditions, this programme is only open to women.
