This summer, LeWeb’13 is returning to London with some of the most influential people from around the internet world. The theme for the event is The New Sharing Economy’, or what some people refer to as ‘collaborative consumption’.

As you would expect from LeWeb, the line up is exceptional with speakers such as Joe Gabbia, Airbnb co-founder, Chad Dickerson, CEO Etsy, and Matt Brittin, President, Northern and Central Europe, Google, to name just a few.

The LeWeb’13 speakers and delegates in attendance will be chewing over all the hot topics, debates and dilemmas bubbling to the surface of the industry right now. They will also be exploring the impact some of the latest startups are having, as they disrupt business models such as public transportation through to hospitality.

Typical of all great events like LeWeb, the opportunities to network with fellow industry professionals and perhaps meet groups from exciting niche areas, is huge. In addition, you will get to meet the finalists for this years Startup Competition.

Naturally, The Next Web will be in attendance reporting across the two days, with Robin Wauters, TNW European Editor speaking at the event as well. We will bring you the latest news and goings on, as it happens.
