Great prospects

The entrepreneurs participating in Valencia Digital Summit 2022 will have the opportunity to showcase their projects to the more than 10,000 attendees expected this year, including 1,500+ startups, 250+ investors and 150+ corporations.

Pre-registration for attendees and collaborators who wish to get involved in the event is now open, as is the call for entries for the event’s startup competition, VDS2022 Competition, which will close its registration period on the 31st of July.

The event will include a completely free section open to the public where attendees will be able to enjoy exhibition areas showcasing the latest trends, tech innovations and disruptive products by means of interactive experiences, all with the aim of highlighting the existing talent in the Valencian Community, attracting investment to the region, and creating business opportunities between corporations and startups. As a novelty of the fifth edition of this event, the event will feature a paid B2B forum with exclusive content and activities for professionals, Summit Pro.

The fifth edition of VDS coincides with the 5th anniversary of Startup Valencia, the association of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the Valencian Community, which aims to represent the region’s startups, boost the competitiveness of the Valencian economy and turn the region into an internationally recognised tech hub.


An international tech event

Since its first edition in 2018, Valencia Digital Summit has recorded exponential growth that has led it to become a globally recognised tech event. In the last edition alone, held on the 15th and 16th of December 2021 and attended by leaders of world-renowned companies such as Airbus, Google and Amazon, as well as consolidated startups such as Jeff, Jobandtalent and Gorillas, the summit generated an economic impact of more than €4.8 million and gathered more than 10,000 people – 5000 of which attended online. In addition, 20% of attendees came from abroad and from up to 25 different countries.
