Web Summit 2017 Lisbon – CamiSiri Survival Guide

As I said in the latest post, for preventing you get lost in this four amazing days, here we have the CamiSiri survival guide to Web Summit 2017 and Lisbon city

Starting from the basics…

Web Summit 2017 is taking place in the Altice Arena (formerly known as MEO Arena) in Lisbon, Portugal (If you click on the link, Google Maps magically will help you), from the 6th to the 9th of November. This year, Web Summit will host 25 conferences, thousands of attendees and hundreds of speakers.

Schedule

Even though 4 days of conferences may seem like quite a while, time will fly quickly and you might miss out something significant because of a tight Web Summit schedule and information overload. Then study carefully the agenda of all the conferences chosen. You can find the schedule here and remember that the website constantly updates information about the event. Read also the FAQ section that provides comprehensive clarifications of a wide range topics. And last but not least here how you can register after having bought the ticket.

Get to

I hope you’ve already bought your flight and if it’s not I know that you can able to use SkyScanner perfectly! Concerning the accommodation, have you tried on BOOKING.COM (with my link you can have the 10% discount), or if everything is full check on AIRNBNB (with my link you can have 25€ discount) a nice room or house.

To get to the FIL and the Altice Arena, there’s an entire post here that explain all the Lisbon’s transports. I also suggest to take CABIFY (a sort of Uber, but Spanish made) that works so well in Lisbon, even better than the major competitor Uber: more cars, high quality a low prices. With y link you can have 6€ credit for the first ride!

Welcome to Lisbon

A roller-coaster city of seven hills, crowned by a Moorish castle and washed in an artist’s pure light, Lisbon is cinematically beautiful and historically compelling. This is a capital city of big skies and bigger vistas; of rumbling trams and Willy Wonka—like elevators; of melancholic fado song and live-to-party nightlife. Edge, charisma and post-card good looks — Lisbon has the lot.

This is Lisbon and Web Summit 2017 is also the opportunity to visit this amazing city. I suggest you to do not miss the Top 10 things to do and see and if you have time you can also discover nice places close to Lisbon.

Side events

The Web Summit is amazing and I’ve already said thousands of times, but one thing that I still haven’t written, is that the side events and after parties are even better! Except the Night Summit where the best networking happens, in bars across Lisbon, there are lots of alternative!

Down here you can find a day by day list that will be updated and refilled as them gets closer. You can also download it, save on your smartphone, print it… and where you see the red star , probably you can meet me there. All links are clickable and from mobile, for a better experience, I suggest you to turn your smartphone in landscape.
