CAIRO ICT 2020

THE BIG RESET

President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, accompanied by top officials and international dignitaries, opened yet another phenomenally successful round of Cairo ICT – the 24th version. Held under slogan “The Big Reset”, Cairo ICT 2020, came as the world exercised a full shut-down and cancelled all physical events. Cairo ICT showed resilience by attracting local, regional and international players to an audience of +80,000, making Cairo ICT 2020 The World’s 1st Hybrid Technology Event.

The presence of H.E. President Al Sisi and global leaders for more than two hours among exhibitors sent strong messages to the world: “Egypt is Open for Business” and “Cairo ICT Continues to be Star of the Region”.

CAIRO ICT 2021

THE DIGITAL CHALLENGE

This year’s slogan is significant on many fronts. Cairo ICT has had slogans along the years that cried out the essence of the industry, hammering the state-of-the industry year after another. We are facing a digital challenge; and the digital world itself is facing its own challenges. Vendors, developers and innovators will come to a standoff at Cairo ICT in competitions that juries will determine the best of the best of each product, service or solution.

Cairo ICT 2021 Topics

Cairo ICT 2021 continues to bring topics it has unveiled in previous rounds, but their continued significance and growth in today’s tech world, makes them incumbent – with a twist – namely:

  • 5-G or Multi-G: 5G is more than just a fast 4G. Network core provides the critical services and features providing the expected added value of 5G. The mobile core is the multi-service hub for mobile networks, supporting 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G services. Multi-G support drives support 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G services, instead of 4G and 5G integration.
  • The Hyperscale Revolution: Large and expandable data centers are used to enable businesses to rapidly enter new markets, by building hyperscale data centers. How does it happen? What technologies are employed? What conditions to attract hyperscalers?
  • Cloud-Tech & DevOps: How do organizations develop, operationalize and monitor software and applications at scale. Hybrid cloud computing and the need for digital intellectual property is driving demand for tools and services to improve software development and operation capabilities.
  • IoT & IIoT: Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is expected to transform industries and open new markets. However, IoT adoption faces the challenge of simplifying complexities. The lack of standards in interfaces, protocols and architectures is slowing down IoT applications implementation.
  • Robotics & Drones: Mechanical devices automated or remote controlled for manufacturing, for surgery or semiconductor production and unmanned vehicles.
  • AR & VR: Hardware and software that create content and distribute AR-related products. VR software and hardware that immerse users in a three-dimensional, virtual world. Wearable devices, environments where users can interact through avatars are target here.
  • Zero-Trust Architecture & Cybersecurity: Vendors are moving towards built-in security models. Automated verification is a key tenet of zero trust models enabling built-in security, while encryption is increasingly important to ensure systems are capable of maintaining data confidentiality, where data and executables are protected at all points.

CAIRO ICT: THE UNIQUE TECH SHOW

What made Cairo ICT unique is a magical blend of technologies, industries, audience, spearheaded with a far-sighted vision about what we need in the Middle East & Africa. Cairo ICT is the Tech event that serves national objectives, businesses, development, and human resources. Cairo ICT 2021 will continue to amaze as a leading Tech event with 10 new domains converged into the tech world; making the 21st round duly dubbed as the Tech Event of the year; namely:

  • Agri-Tech: Technologies to automate, manage and promote farming, including: wireless sensors to monitor soil, air and animal health, as well as remote-controlled irrigation systems, biotech platforms for crop yields, data-analysis software to augment planting, herd, poultry and livestock management.
  • Ed-Tech: The adoption of app-based services and personalization with focus on AI/ML. Classrooms have become tech-infused with tablets, interactive online courses and even robots. EdTech tools are changing classrooms and education at large.
  • Space-Tech: Space technology companies provide services, and technologies to improve life and most significantly communications. This includes micro-satellites, ground station networks, satellite imagery, satellite telecommunications, and space-based data.
  • Retail-Tech: Products and services to improve consumer experiences. It targets, hypermarkets and retailers at large. It also covers the entire supply chain from factory to consumer. Also, restaurant customer-based technologies help owners increase profitability, efficiency and customer engagement, acquisition and retention.
  • Ad-Tech: Advertising technology including software and services that deliver, control and target online advertising, create targeted advertisements based on user interest and behavior.
  • Entertain-Tech: This is not only about changing user consumption, but is also about creating new channels and devices to engage with content. Also, gaming is bigger than ever, where 2021 is another year of disruption for media and entertainment.
  • Sport-Tech: Technology has transformed the field of sports training and advanced technology has become smaller and more resilient, bringing new opportunities. Wearable tech conveys real-time information and can prevent injuries; GPS pinpoints motion; live metrics help trainers determine aspects each athlete needs to focus on.
  • Prop-Tech & Construct-Tech: Prop-Tech is changing the way we buy, sell, and interact with properties. Big data, property management software, (IoT) devices, data analysis tools, A/R and V/R applications, and crowdfunding are some subsectors. And with the boom in the construction, efficiency and productivity is much needed. This includes project management software, job-site survey tools, building information modeling, modular and pre-fabrication solutions, and risk management tools.
  • Museum-Tech: The region is seeing a boom in building museums, not only in countries with long heritage, but also in countries wanting to own artifacts from the world to establish their own culture attraction. Technologies in this domain are endless
