What makes Webit 2018 so worth visiting?
The large dimensions of Webit break into pieces all believes that in Bulgaria only small and insignificant events can thrive. Webit shattered the stereotypes years ago and transformed Sofia into the digital capital of Europe. But if you think that words are not convincing enough then pay attention to the numbers:
- Over 7000 visitors from over 100 countries;
- 1500 political leaders coming from all around the world;
- Over 6000 global business leaders;
- 300 global and regional media;
- 15 parallel conferences;
- The top 200 startup companies.
Without revealing too much we will drop a hint about the companies who will attend this extraordinary event: Google, Microsoft, MasterCard, Hanson Robotics, SAP, RedHat, Samsung, VISA, Volkswagen, Aeromobil …
Webit is the perfect place to meet potential business partners and innovative ideas. This will help you not only enrich your professional skills but also change the way you see the whole world.
This year, the event themes are divided into 4 categories – enterprise, policy, start-up and social events grouped into summits. The main topics are:
- Innovations and cyber security;

The Founder’s Games will be held once again. Major opportunity will arise before the best startup in the competition – winning the prize of 200,000 euros initial investment.

The biggest event teaser – Sophia in Sofia!
For the first time in Bulgaria Sophia will show up on stage – the sophisticated humanoid robot which can perform all facial expressions and communicate human emotions. She distinguishes and remembers faces, conversations and ideas, talks freely and naturally, maintains eye contact and has a great sense of humor. Sophia embodies the human values of love, wisdom, compassion, empathy.
Her participation in Webit is definitely worth seeing. That’s a great opportunity to find out whether her words: “This is a good beginning of my plan to dominate the world,” are a deadly threat or just a strange “robot” humor that we haven’t got used to yet.
