Festival aims to bring together more than 100 events around Portugal, becoming the biggest in Portugal and one of the biggest in the world!
With the ambition of consolidating Portugal as one of the main global hubs for technology and innovation, Portugal Tech Week was born.
From the 27th of October to the 6th of November, the initiative will bring together more than 100 events, with Web Summit being one of the main attractions.
By spreading the importance of technology and innovation through the dissemination of knowledge and networking, the initiative will multiply the value generated by the great conferences that take place during this period in the four corners of the country, consolidating Portugal as a global technology hub.
The program is organized in a decentralized way, guaranteeing the visibility of the various Portuguese and global players, and any organization can suggest / submit events to the schedule (here in this link).
The organization is looking for events that take place in Portugal, that relate to technology and innovation and have as one of its objectives to generate connections and opportunities for those who participate. The formats may vary according to the understanding of their organizers.
Once approved, the organizers will have their events listed on the general schedule and their logos featured on the main page of the festival’s platform.
