The year so far has been quite interesting for the Web Data Extraction industry. As more and more companies are realizing the power of web extracted data, the demand for web data is rising quickly. This exponential growth and need for web data have driven many innovations leading to the development of new tools and techniques that have revolutionized web data extraction making it faster, more accurate, and more reliable.

Extract Summit 2021 is a great opportunity to stay up-to-date with these latest advancements and understand the new ways in which people use web data to drive business. It is also a fun way to interact with the community and meet new people who are just as passionate about web data as you are. Mark your calendars, 30th September is the big day!

We loved that last year almost 3000 data lovers signed up for the event and we got to hear about the data extraction experiences of people all over the world. We had speakers from all corners of the world who shared their unique stories on extracting and making the best use of web data. This year is also going to be a free-to-attend, live, and virtual event.

In fact, this year, we’re kicking it a notch up! We’ll have a dedicated event platform that will allow you to directly interact with the speakers and even chat with other attendees. We’ll also have an amazing panel of legal experts in web scraping and an AMA (ask me anything) session where web scraping experts will answer any technical questions you have. You’ll also get a chance to attend workshops and live-coding sessions! There’s also going to be a special session by Brian Gallagher & Damian Clark who will add a little comedy and laughs to the day.

It’s just a few weeks until Extract Summit 2021 and as the final pieces come together, we’re delighted to introduce you to the speakers for Extract Summit 2021!
