Held at the Cairo International Conference Centre from 26th to 29th April inclusive, the international trade fair is one of the top events in the Middle East and North Africa covering the fields of IT, electronics, satellite and broadcasting, hardware and software, as well as Internet and mobile services.
Communications and Information Technology ministers from Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and North Sudan will all be speaking alongside Egypt’s Communications and Information Technology minister at the event’s keynote address to discuss ways of connecting the continent.
The four day event will culminate with the World Summit Award (WSA), a global not-for-profit activity to select and promote best practice in e-Content production and creativity in innovative Internet applications.
Cairo ICT is one of the largest in the domain of technology and its applications in the Middle East and North Africa. The conference that runs parallel to the exhibition features the latest topics and trends of technology issues tackled by prominent speakers, decision makers and major players in these domains.
Yasser ElKady, CEO of ITIDA, said: “We take our responsibility for growing and developing Egypt’s position as a leading global outsourcing location very seriously. Hosting the WSA at Cairo ITC 2012 is the perfect opportunity to show the world that Egypt produces world-class technically proficient talent.”
Having postponed the 2011 winners’ event due to political turmoil, the award ceremony will take place in Cairo. From over 460 projects and 105 countries the WSA Grand Jury selected 40 WSA Winners in 2011.
