Speakers at The Next Web conferences have included Gary Vaynerchuk, Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, and Robert Cailliau.[10][11]

In 2017, The Next Web's Amsterdam conference came under fire for making misleading statements, and having a lack of transparency about paying presenters for speaking appearances, and for having a gender gap in the number of its male and female presenters, and a gender pay gap in their compensation.[11]
