LACS will be Web Summit’s headquarters in Portugal. The creative cluster will be the main office of the most important technology events in the world.

LACS Anjos is a project forged in the desire to develop dynamic and multidisciplinary spaces addressing different ways of labour. We are a workspace where work, culture and leisure, merge in perfect harmony. We see Web Summit as a partner that shares these same values and is the main icon of innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity in our country. It is truly a privilege to see Web Summit be part of our ever-widening, ever-expanding ecosystem”, explained Dulce Martinho, LACS’ General Manager.


Thereby, the conference found a new home in the creative cluster space opened in June 2019 by LACS at the old Labour Court (Tribunal do Trabalho) in the Anjos district area.


Web Summit, the largest technology, startup and entrepreneur conference in the world, was founded by Paddy Cosgrave, David Kelly and Daire Hickey in 2009 and it’s often recognized as the most important tech event in the world, as described by Forrester Research. The event’s main topics are digital technology, emerging technologies, the Internet and entrepreneurship. The technology summit moved from Ireland to Portugal in 2016.
