Cairo ICT 2016 to kick off on November 27 at CICC

Cairo ICT 2016 will take place on November 27-30 at Cairo International Convention and Exhibition Center (CICC) under the slogan “Digital Disruption Era”.

Cairo ICT is one of the top international events in the Middle East and North Africa covering the fields of telecom, information technology, electronics, mobile applications, integrated systems, satellite and broadcasting, hardware and software, security, Internet, mobile services and related sectors.

The exhibit will be attended by developers and providers of technology services and giant project owners under one roof. It will bring together global industry leaders, experts, investors, chief executive officers and senior leaders of major companies in the field of planning, designing and global technology.

A new map of the expo grounds, covering more than 30,000 square meters, provides the clear distinction of the sectors presented within Cairo ICT 2016; namely, telecommunications, satellite communications and Internet of Things (IoT), information technology and enterprise solutions, and smart cites and smart communities. This is in addition to e-payment and innovative financial inclusion; and defense, security and public safety technology.

On the sideline of the Conference, a number of side events will be held. The Second Defense, Security and Public Safety Technologies Fair and Forum (DSS) 2016 has proven success in its first round last year, covering technologies pertaining to defense, homeland security, airport security, private security and public safety fields.

The second side event is the third e-Payment and Innovative Financial Inclusion Expo and Forum (Pafix 2016) held under the auspices of the Central Bank (CB), with the participation of the banking sector, a number of government entities, fixed-line and mobile operators, integrated solutions companies and financial services providers. PAFIX is in line with the State’s interest in e-payment system and the transition to a non-cash society.

The second Smart Communities Exhibition and Forum 2016 is another side even that showcases cutting-edge technologies, real-world solutions and proven strategies taken up or need to be taken up by real estate developers and government bodies who seek to build sustainable cities. Specialized visitors will have an opportunity to see, hear and experience the next wave of innovative, integrated technologies that are already helping communities become more connected and sustainable.
