What is Webit?

Over the past 12 years Webit stands for a global community and a series of large scale and high impact events around the world from Sofia, Istanbul, Davos through Dubai and New Delhi to Singapore.

Webit events grow with over 30% on year to year bases reaching to over 15,000 attendees from 120 countries in 2019.

Each Webit event represents the term convergence at its best and aims at collectively creating a preview of the future and thus providing opportunities to change it and fix it through collaboration at all levels.

The Webit Global Community gathers together tens of thousands global leaders, founders of fastest growing companies, digerati, policy makers, inventors, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists and experts fostering innovation and the digital transformation in the business and the society.

In 2020 the European edition has a new home – the city of Valencia, bringing digital Europe together with America, Asia, Middle East and Africa.

Why Valencia?

27 European cities have participated in an open call for a host city of Webit.Festival Europe 2020. And Valencia won!

We chose Valencia because we saw in this city not only an unique combination between history and future, but also a big ambition to develop its role as the next hub for technology and innovation in Spain and Europe.

Webit, the local ecosystem and the Spanish state on all levels share a common vision about Valencia of the future - a city that is not famous only as the birthplace of the world's famous, delicious rice-based dish paella, a place of incredible beaches and tourist attractions and the home of the world famous Las Fallas festival, but also a city with fast-growing startup ecosystem, the home of some of the Spain's largest companies and an amazing place to be for an event.

The city is an unique combination of the farthest past, dating to the year 138 BC, with the most innovative technological advancements of the new millennium. The place is a magical mix between trade, cosmopolitan spirit, avant-garde architecture and outstanding beaches.

Festivals, culture, sports, gastronomy… Valencia really has all the reasons for you to visit and then come back for more.

Valencia has already hosted America's Cup and Formula 1 in the past. In 2020 on 17-20 June it will be the home of Webit.Festival Europe.

Join Webit.Festival Europe 2020 at La Marina de Valencia and experience the best in Valencia as part of our incredible journey to the future.
