A note on Wi-Fi networks
In short, operating any Wi-Fi network at our event without explicit permission is strictly forbidden and against our T&Cs.
We actively monitor for use of unauthorised devices and will terminate them if found. Some examples of unauthorised devices are Wi-Fi routers, personal hotspots via your mobile phone or a MiFi device, etc.
Radio space (the air!) in the venue will be shared by everyone and rogue networks directly interfere with that goal, disrupting everyone’s experience.
We carefully plan and design our networks to support the best experience we can provide for everyone.
Web Summit currently offers packages to cater for a variety of circumstances and demonstrations. With knowledge of your requirements, we can better tailor a package to your needs and give you the best experience possible.
Please contact your partner success manager if you have any concerns or queries regarding this policy or any network-related question. We are on hand and happy to help.
Please note that bespoke solutions for connectivity are only available for Gold activations and above.

How does it work?
The Web Summit app provides participants with a lead scanning function. Once an attendee’s QR code is scanned a request will appear in the attendee’s app to approve the scan. Only if this is accepted, will the attendee’s information appear in the “My Scans” section.
At the end of the event, if accepted, all scanned attendee information can be exported via email. Alternatively, partners can rent a device/license from our lead retrieval supplier Zuant. The main differences can be found below.

Think of us as an extension of your PR agency or in-house communications team. We work closely with the media coming to Web Summit, and we know what they want from a story.
We can help arrange one-to-one interviews or press briefings, and we can distribute your press release on the dedicated Web Summit media portal. We can do all of this, but we need the news from you.

Media are interested in exclusives and stories they can’t get anywhere else. So you should be thinking along the following lines:

This will be hosted on websummit.com/media which all media visit during the event to hear the latest news announced during Web Summit.
