The Sustainable Fast Track UK
programme had a busy schedule in Lisbon during Web Summit.
The UK GREAT stand became our main stage and most probably also the main scene for sustainability at the Web Summit. We had an outstanding dialogue with journalists, entrepreneurs and brands about the status quo as well as about the opportunities for sustainable businesses and their products both in the UK and emerging markets.
Furthermore, the DIT organised two networking events in town with business leaders and local startup community – one of them at Beta-i – to discuss the market potential for sustainable products and the benefits of expanding the operations through the UK.
We experienced a great interest in the sustainability agenda as well as the Sustainable Fast Track UK programme from the participants at both events as well as over a thousand direct talks we had during the Web Summit, and not to forget the Night Summit.
All these meetings and talks made our three days full of action and we look forward to reconnect with many of the companies at the Award show in London on 24 March 2020!
