With each year, my excitement to attend the Web Summit wanes. After three editions, I’m beginning to focus less on conferences and discussion panels, and more on getting to know the travel startups, network with fellow travel journalists and web content writers, and see one or two live pitches..
By the way, well done with the introduction of the startup showcase stages this year. It’s a huge time-saver to sit for one hour while startups (travel in my case) take the stage to introduce themselves. Were they all amazing? No, of course not. Each one of them had two minutes to wow the audience and, to be honest, we weren’t the most cheerful spectators.
That said, two minutes is short but speakers need to up their game.
