On March 6th, I will be speaking at the MENA ICT Forum in the Amman, Jordan area as one of five panelists discussing ICT trends in commerce, e-commerce, and e-payments. This discussion will take place from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The MENA ICT Forum is a two-day event dedicated to Information and Communications Technology, an area of business that brings together telecommunications, software, and computer systems to help users access, store, send, and work with information. The MENA ICT 2013 forum covers important issues related to “regional investment climates, legislative support systems, infrastructure & communications, emerging technologies, as well as education & human capital development,” according to the official MENA ICT website.
I am participating in this forum because, as the founder of a tech company in Saudi Arabia, I feel it is important for me to contribute to discussions about business and technology in the region. I will be commenting on issues facing ICT in the Arab world, including challenges and opportunities, and participating in a 20 to 30 minute Q & A session between the panelists and audience.
If you are interested in attending, please register on the MENA ICT Forum website. The event will be held at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center, a 40-minute drive away from the city of Amman.
I hope to see you there.
