Web Summit is a huge event which, according to this infographic, only in this year is supposed to gather around 10k professionals from the field of new media, technology and business. During two day conference almost 900 speakers will give their presentations on 7 different stages.
On the infographic below you can see the first 10 of them. We’ve chosen the number of followers as the main variable to analyse. Also worth considering is the number of published tweets as it indicates how much a given person has to say. Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee), Robert Scoble (@Scobleizer) and Dave McClure (@davemcclure) are the leaders in this category.
We hope our infographic will be useful for you! Enjoy the conference!
