Cairo ICT 2017 will be organized by Trade Fairs International on December 3-6, at Egypt Convention Center, in New Cairo. Under the theme " Expect the Unexpected", Cairo ICT will showcase the advanced technologies and solutions that visitors cannot expect.
The Exhibition will host visitors from Egypt and all over the world to meet more than 400 international and local companies in the various technology sectors, whether telecommunications, IT, networks, satellites, financial payment techniques, defense, public security and safety, as well as smart cities and communities.
A number of workshops and presentations of products and solutions will be held by the participating companies. Cairo ICT hosts developers and providers of technology services and giant project owners under one roof. It will bring together global industry leaders, experts, investors, chief executive officers and senior leaders of major companies in the field of planning, designing and global technology.
The launch of the mobile service through Telecom Egypt (TE) using the Fourth-Generation (4G) technologies is one of the most key events of Cairo ICT 2017, while the three competitors: Etisalat, Orange and Vodafone will showcase their latest technologies, networks and applications using the 4G technology. At the same time, the global network solutions providers, including Ericsson, Avaya, Motorola, Samsung, Cisco and Huawei, will offer their latest solutions.
On the sideline of Cairo ICT 2017, a number of side events will be held, including the third Defense, Security and Public Safety Technologies Fair and Forum (DSS), which has proven success in its first and second rounds last year, covering technologies pertaining to defense, homeland security, airport security, private security and public safety fields.
The second side event is the fourth e-Payment and Innovative Financial Inclusion Expo and Forum (PAFIX), held in cooperation with the banking sector, a number of government entities, fixed-line and mobile operators, integrated solutions companies and financial services providers. PAFIX is in line with the State’s interest in e-payment system and the transition to a non-cash society.
The third Smart Communities Exhibition and Forum is another side event that showcases cutting-edge technologies, real-world solutions and proven strategies taken up or need to be taken up by real estate developers and government bodies who seek to build sustainable cities.
