This year’s conference is being held under the theme of ‘Leading Change.’ The exhibition is the most prominent regional platform for bringing and reviewing the most important trends and technologies in the sector.

Osama Kamal — CEO of Trade Fairs International, which organised the exhibition — said that this year’s Cairo ICT session is taking place while governments’ interest in technology and its applications has reached its peak given the clear role that technology plays in accelerating the pace of economic development, improving the attractiveness of different countries for investments, and creating a distinguished business climate.
