Key takeaways from the Web Summit 2013

At the end of October I attended The Web Summit (now rebranded to The Summit)  in Dublin, Ireland. Hosted at RDC Dublin, this mammoth conference has been dubbed ‘The European SXSW’.

I’ve never been to SXSW but from reading about it and now having attended The Summit I can agree with this. The list of speakers was overwhelming just to look at, and the quality of those speakers were the highest you’d find in Europe. I couldn’t wait.

Usually I attend search related conferences and this was more of a general technology so was slightly different.The scope of the talks themselves were also varied. Some I could take some useful notes, others were more about strategic thinking and general information.
