From November 05 to 08, Redison will be present in Lisbon for the world’s largest exhibition on new technologies.
This is a unique opportunity for us.
The Web Summit : what is it ?
Considered as one of the largest technology conferences in the world, the Web Summit is an event taking place in early November in Lisbon.
In eight years, the Web Summit has grown from 400 participants to more than 60,000 participants, from more than 150 countries. This is the strongest growth ever seen for an event of this type.
The Web Summit has become a major global event, with all the world’ s leading technology brands present. This year, more than 70,000 people are expected to come to Lisbon especially for the Web Summit, as well as more than 2,500 international journalists.
The event is best known for its huge conferences and famous speakers.
Last year, Stephen Hawking made a remarkable speech at the opening keynote of the Web Summit, warning against the risks of artificial intelligence, the main topic of the 2017 edition.
Another remarkable intervention last year was the one by Stewart Butterfield, Co-founder and CEO of Slack, who reshaped the way companies communicate today.
The music sector is not to be outdone either, and important personalities have been able to travel to Lisbon.
In 2014, Bono came to lead a conference at the event.
In case you don’t know who Bono is, he is the singer of the Irish rock band U2 which won 22 Grammys.
Another artist who has already participated to the Web Summit: Mike Shinoda.
Mike is a singer from Linkin Park and Fort Minor, and a member of the Sonos and Spotify Advisory Board. Recently, he co-founded Machine Shop Ventures, a fund that invests in start-up companies around the world.
This year, Redison will have the opportunity to meet some of the biggest names in the digital world: Samsung, Booking.com, Microsoft, Pinterest, Twitch, Apple, IBM, Netflix, Minecraft and many others.
In addition to the hundreds of innovative companies that came to present their latest products, the Web Summit also includes 4-day conferences, business competitions and numerous opportunities to introduce journalists and investors from around the world to Redison and Senstroke.
Why the Web Summit is important for Redison ?
As you know, Redison is a start-up that is currently taking off. We are in the process of launching Senstroke sensors, our first product.
The Web Summit is a unique opportunity to present the sensors to the world, while orders and shipments are being processed.
This global event requires significant preparation. We are working hard to plan our appointments, demonstration sessions and stand preparation.
Indeed, Redison will have the opportunity to exhibit with the official French delegation French Tech / Business France.
This will be followed by meetings and interviews with journalists from all over the world to promote Redison in the international press.
Indeed, more than 2,600 media participated in the Web Summit in 2017.
We will have the opportunity to present Senstroke sensors to the big names in the music and high-tech industries: business leaders, journalists, bloggers… We will be pleased to wear Redison’s colours high in Portugal.
It is a great opportunity for us to be able to participate in an event of this scale, and we would like once again to thank Business France for allowing us to participate in this great gathering.
Of course, we would like to thank our entire community again: whether on Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, your support since the beginning of this adventure is essential.
If you want to learn more about the test phase of our sensors, I invite you to read this article.
And don’t forget, keep on drumming !
The Redison team.
