Managing Communities @ Web Summit with CMX Connect Lisbon

Thu, Nov 12, 2020, 9:30 PM (GMT+3)

About this event

Web Summit, one of the largest events in the globe dedicated to the tech community, normally gathers over +60k attendees in Lisbon. In 2020, it will happen online for over than +100k participants.

How will they be able to provide an interactive experience to so many attendees in an online format? What does managing hundreds of speakers in their own homes look like? What did they learn with Collision, another one Web Summit's tech-focused event, that happened months ago and was also pivoted to online?

If you want to know the answers to these questions, we've got you covered at the next CMX Connect Portugal!!

Carolyn Quinlan, Head of Community @ Web Summit will share with us her story, how she got to lead community at Web Summit, what community means to them and the importance it has... And of course, she'll tell us everything about Web Summit and all the behind the scenes work that is currently happening to ensure “the best technology conference on the planet” is flawless in December.

At the end, we will all be able to mingle and network with each other. It will be the perfect opportunity to get to ask your questions, share your points of view and get to know new amazing community managers from all over the world (:
