The Next Web is a website and annual series of conferences focused on technology and business.[1] The Next Web company was established in 2006 by Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten and Patrick de Laive, and a technology news website of the same name followed three years later.[2][3]

The Next Web's reporting has been sourced by Wired, Mashable, and the Huffington Post, among others.[4][5][6][7] Speakers at The Next Web conferences have included Gary Vaynerchuk, Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, and Robert Cailliau.[8][9] In 2017, The Next Web's Amsterdam conference came under fire for a gender pay gap in speaker fees between its male and female presenters.[9]
