On 1-2 October 2014 the 6th Global Webit Congress took place in the fabulous city of Istanbul.
We would like to express our special thanks to all attendees who came to GWC’14 from the record breaking number of 110 visiting countries.

The Famous Webit Party in 2014 was powered by Fashion TV and attracted over 3000 of the Webit attendees to the man-made island of Suada – between Europe and Asia who partied till early morning. “Even though we have faced some organizational issues and we had to cancel a large number of exhibitors due to unprecedented issue with local authorities, the 6th edition of the Global Webit Congress 2014 was a huge success” shared the Chairman of the board – Plamen Russev.
“We have established the Global Webit Congress as a premier global gathering of the top media, digital and tech experts providing a 360 degree business networking with top C-level executives from 110 countries. As many of Webit attendees shared – whoever you rub shoulders with at Webit is a decision maker from the markets he or she represents, which are predominately from within EMEA and Asia.” says Russev.
