“MEET ICT” will be held at The Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre from 10th to 12th December - previously held at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, the new location for the 2012 event reflects the growth throughout the ICT industry and the expanded MEET ICT agenda.
The event will bring together a wide range of local, regional and international professionals and companies from across the ICT spectrum on one platform and under one roof with the theme of “Leading Business Growth Through ICT Advancements.”
The event will comprise a 2 day Conference, three 1 day Workshops, a CIOs Round-Table, a number of Business Matching sessions and a 3 day Exhibition, involving over 450 delegates, more than 50 exhibitors and nearly 40 international ‘industry expert’ speakers. Subjects will include current ‘hot’ topics such as Cloud Computing, Cyber-Security, Mobility, e-Learning and Social Networking.
MEET ICT Bahrain 2012 will support the position of Bahrain as a hub for the Regional ICT industry by including top IT and ICT providers as well as renowned international leaders and experts from the field, all sharing industry knowledge, experiences and ideas.
Mr Ubaydli, Chairman of the MEET ICT Bahrain 2012 Steering Committee, commented that “MEET ICT will reach out to the international audience, which will not only help delegates from the MENA Region to share in the experiences of their international counter-parts, but also allow international companies to benefit from taking part in the Region’s ICT development.”
MEET ICT Bahrain 2012 will include a number of Business Matching Sessions which will allow local companies and individuals to meet international organizations on a ‘one on one’ basis. This will allow Bahraini companies to develop their international ICT business relationships, share knowledge and encourage the establishment of new international ICT companies and joint ventures in Bahrain.
