If you had told us a few years ago that an event by tech geeks for tech geeks would become the hottest event of the year we wouldn't have believed it. No way. There's even fashion advice on what to wear at the Web Summit. I mean yeah, we've been doing this for a few years, but an event like this used to be for a niche, a specific group of people, right?

Wrong - Not anymore. Us nerds have taken over - and that's right, we're the cool folk now.


And so. It's time. Aptoide is making it's way to the largest tech conference in the world: Web Summit, which will be held for the first time in Lisbon, Portugal - a cool port city on the western edge of continental Europe - which some international press has hailed as a potential new hotspot for tech startups in coming years.


As an extension of the Web Summit main event, Aptoide will be hosting the Aptoide App Awards, which we already covered here. The idea is to reward and showcase the top developers from the ecosystem of the city that is hosting the Web Summit - Lisbon. You can already check the finalists in the two categories covered by the Aptoide App Awards: Games and Non-Games. The winners will be announced on the second day of the Web Summit (November 8th), on the coolest rooftop of Lisbon: TOPO Martim Moniz. Check all the details of this event here.


On the following day, if you happen to be around the Lisbon downtown, be sure to spot the Aptoide Tram, which will be part of the Aptoide Tram Lisbon Tour, which is meant to act like a time machine, showing the hidden beauties of the older parts of this city.

Additionally, Aptoide will have a stand in Web Summit, on the START Exhibition Area of Pavilion 2, during the second day of the event (Tuesday, November 8th). If you're at the Web Summit - of course you are -, make sure you stop by stand S-103 and see for yourself what we're doing to own the best tech event on the planet.

See you guys in Lisbon!
