Carrying the same slogan of TECHNOLOGY.INNOVATION.TALENT on which the event concept is built, the two-day summit will act as a platform including the main global players in the technology industry, namely: industry professionals as speakers, technology businesses, entrepreneurs and startups, investors, users and media representatives. Techne Summit 2016 will be under the auspicious of The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology where Minister H.E. Eng. Yasser El Kady, will be leading the event’s opening ceremony.
Techne Summit will also be under the auspicious of The Federation of the Egyptian Chambers of Commerce, The Information Technology Industry Development Agency, The Federation of the Egyptian Chambers of Commerce and The General Division for The Computer and Software.
Techne Summit 2016 will build on the success of Techne Summit 2015 held back in October 2015 where it was the first of its kind event in the region. This year the event will continue with the same philosophy of capitalizing on the crucial role of the technology and communications sectors in the development of nations, and fostering innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship to serve the development process.
Techne Summit aims to create a platform where booming startups in the technology market are able to showcase their latest innovations, granting their products or services greater visibility among industry professionals and enthusiasts. Similarly participants will have access to the latest innovations and recent business trends, therefore gaining exposure and increased knowledge in the field.
Markade Agency event organizers, along with organizing partners Innovideas, revealed on the Techne Summit website the astounding speaker line-up from around the world who will be sharing their experience and expertise at this year’s event. Says Tarek El Kady, Managing Director Markade, “Last year Techne Summit 2015 was a great success. This year with Techne Summit 2016 we are building on that success and catering to the feedback that we received from both participants and speakers alike to present an unprecedented technology event experience to the region.”
El Kady adds, “Our 2015 event presented networking opportunities between what was close to 48 speakers, 900 attendees, 39 Startups and 100 volunteers, from 12 countries worldwide. Techne Summit has definitely established itself as a leading event in the technology industry in the region and our aim along with our partners is to continue to foster that success. For Techne Summit 2016 we are working with double the speakers’ figure of that of Techne Summit 2015, four times the startup one and triple the attendance, while reaching out to more countries in the region.”
