Welcome to the MENA ICT Forum
The MENA ICT Forum is a premier ICT industry event of the Middle East and North Africa region, held biennially in Jordan under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein. The Forum is an ideal regional platform to acquire knowledge, establish vision, and network with C-suite business people, governments and policy makers, nonprofit executives, investors and funds, entrepreneurs, ICT professionals, enthusiasts, and hobbyists.
Our last Forum held back in 2016 was a tremendous success. The forum hosted over 600 high-level decision makers from industry, government and policy makers, ICT companies, financiers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts. The overall satisfaction rate was 93-percent and nine of ten delegates said they would definitely attend the next MENA ICT Forum.

AND THE THEME FOR 2018 IS ...
THE NEW IT; INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY"
MENA ICT FORUM 2018
The New IT; Innovative Technology
While the immense demand for information to create greater insight into business and other aspects of life continues to grow, the typical IT (Information Technology) that made available many of the advanced technologies engrained in our lives today, seems to have become obsolete and gasping behind the new and reformed IT; Innovative Technology.
The future is here and now. Innovative Technologies are now taking center-stage and are radically reshaping our world. From self-driving vehicles, hot solar cells, gene therapy solutions, smart cities, to face recognition and intelligent applications, new innovative technologies have staying power, and are bound to drastically affect our economy, lifestyle, and influence our culture.
This year’s theme was inspired by the continuous innovation and evolvement of technology. We believe that IT is no longer just “Information” Technology, it is, in fact, shifting heavily into becoming more and more “Innovative.” So, are we ready for the new IT?
