The sixth edition of ArabNet Digital Summit 2018 is rolling round once more and it’s time to jot down what’s coming up.
This is one of the region’s leading conferences for business and entrepreneurship and disruptive trends transforming traditional business, and if you’ve got an interest in the fields of media and marketing, financial technology, smart economy, and investment, this two-day conference is well worth a visit.
This year the conference is divided into five forums, this is what you need to know:
The Money Forum
Technology is changing the face of financial services. The ArabNet Digital Summit explores trends and opportunities in financial technology, banking, and transactional businesses. Transformations created by artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, and the practical opportunities available for banks and financial services providers will be topics of discussion at this forum.
The Smart Economy Forum
As technology reshapes the relationship between governments and their citizens, this conference will explore smart economy – blockchain technology, progress through big data, and the evolving role of digital enterprises.
It will also propose visionary outlooks for creative cities of the future, we reckon Saudi will feature heavily here.
With a huge increase in digital start ups in the MENA region in 2017, and further increase in international investors and rise of regional angels, this forum will feature dedicated discussions from investors about startup investing and venture capital as an asset class, the future of alternative funding and global technology trends. It will also delve into fund closures, governance and initiatives supporting the growth of the investment ecosystem.
Media and Adtech Forum
The data trend shows no signs of slowing down as the spotlight of demand for measurable outcomes increases.
The ArabNet Summit will feature two full tracks covering the latest trends in digital media and advertising, including the AdTech Showcase – a convergence of new advertising and media technologies from around the world to improve the impact and efficiency of campaigns, and help publishers maximise revenues.
Real Estate Forum
The Dubai property market is on the rise and technology is making a marked impact with the likes of 3D modeling for development and customization, virtual reality and immersive technology for sales, IoT for maintenance and energy efficiency, and apps for managing the relationship with tenants and developing community.
This forum will discuss how technology is impacting the real estate sector, helping developers facilitate their operations and keeping tenants happy.
