The 27th edition of Cairo ICT 2023 promises despite – or perhaps because of – world geopolitical and economic challenges to be an amazing round of the leading technology event for Africa and the Middle East.

Taking place on 19 – 22 November, with 500+ regional and international companies specialized in telecommunications, Information Technology, Satellite Communications, and a large focus on Artificial Intelligence participating in the event.


Cairo ICT ’23 – a witness and a catalyst of change in the region for more than 26 years – is held under the  ‘Make the Difference… Be the Difference,’ addressing all those interested in transformation or working on the change of our societies, to build their own cases in seeking to make the difference, by being the difference.

Cairo ICT is a prominent regional platform, bringing and reviewing the most important trends and technologies in the sector.

Osama Kamal — CEO Trade Fairs International, organizer of Cairo ICT — says challenges facing the world are more of a reason for major technology players to join Cairo ICT and more of a reason corporates and governments need to be present to draw a map for how they will move in the coming years.


Artificial Intelligence is the focus of this coming round of Cairo ICT in all events taking place within Cairo ICT (Pafix, Insuretech, Manutech, Intellicities and Connecta). Variations on this theme alongside other topics leading the world of technology and leading the world through technology are also highlights of Cairo ICT ’23.

Prepare yourself for a memorable round of the region’s most visited event.

Cairo ICT 2022 Topics

  • Innovative solutions for Modern Data Center Considerations

2021 represented a period of accelerated transformation for the technology industry. The resultant changes to the design and capacity of data centers that were brought about have sparked questions about optimal data center designs, as well as the roadmap to future-state data centers. Almost every technology organization has seen a meaningful paradigm shift in how they manage service delivery, allocate resources, and provide user support. These changes are further underpinned by greater connectivity requirements and a clear emphasis on sustainable technologies. As these challenges grow in scale, discussions around optimal data center design, uptime, resiliency, and risk posturing are going to increase in relevance and urgency.

At Cairo ICT 2022, we will gather industry leaders and innovators at one expo to provide their leading-edge views, strategies and insights on how they are tackling these ambiguous challenges and building the technologies of the future . During the event, you can expect to:

    • Receive networking opportunities with the brightest, most innovative minds in the data center industry
    • Take a peek into the future of data center technologies
    • Expand your knowledge on managing data centers cost-effectively
    • Learn energy control efficiencies that are economical while demonstrating environmental stewardship
    • Remain updated of new product launches
    • Understand how to manage costs prudently as data center needs and workloads grow


  • 5G

As technology improves global interconnectedness, telecom companies are facing demand to improve the reliability and network capacity of wireless services. At Cairo ICT 2022, you can see firsthand how carriers and wireless operators are responding to these needs with the powerful 5G network that will bolster efficiencies and elevate user experience.



In the new interconnected world, Cairo ICT remains the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region’s hub of 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The event will be host to truly cutting-edge innovations from next-gen founders and companies across the world who share a common vision for a safer, responsible, and more sustainable future.

  • Cyber Security

With cyber-attacks on the rise, there are rapidly evolving threats that cybersecurity professionals have to remain cognizant of. Information security protocols are also becoming gradually more difficult to implement in a more globalized world. However, earning and retaining customer trust is paramount now more than ever.

By remaining abreast of the big picture and key trends in cybersecurity, organizations can remain vigilant while addressing new threats in a proactive manner. To this end, cybersecurity information and education needs to be embedded into the core strategy to ensure that all personnel and systems are appropriately equipped to prevent, detect, defend against, and mitigate the consequences of cyberattacks. The objectives of CAISEC include:

    • Providing insights in setting up, maintaining and improving information security
    • Protecting against hybrid threats
    • Protection of critical infrastructure in companies and institutions

At CAISEC, participants can strengthen their knowledge and shields against cyberattacks by networking with industry experts, and learning about the latest developments in cyber security. We also have an array of leading speakers and exhibitors that will showcase the newest services and solutions to defend against bad actors and agents in a world that is increasingly digital.

You can also discover scalable solutions that help to protect your business. These initiatives are designed to mitigate uncertainty through the development of robust cybersecurity strategies that implement high-quality defence measures.


  • Digital transformation a new era

Albeit new, the concept of a ‘Digital government’ has become a significant topic of discussion as the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) continues to grow at an unprecedented pace. According to a survey, over half of the countries in the MENA region have currently instituted digital government initiatives. Thus far, the steps taken by the Egyptian government have been widely viewed as advancement-focused actions that will help to drive progress for the country and the broader region.


  • Global Digital Government Transformation Enters a New Era

The transformation of government governance and service is typically reflective of the prevalent characteristics of the particular time period. From the early stages of information digitization, online services and service integration to the modern smart government, technology has played a crucial role in the effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery by governments. According to a 2020 UN survey, 84% of countries offered at least one e-government mobile application. This trend is likely to continue as governments continue to prioritize the integration of technology to accelerate service delivery and economics.

Some of the key themes that will be covered in Cairo ICT 2022:

    • Transformation of public sector services
    •  Impact of cloud on public sector services
    •  African Government technology ecosystem
    •  Engaging citizens through more accessible governments
    •  The future of work and hybrid workforces
    •  Identifying cyber threats in the public sector through cohesive strategies
    •  Health services transformation using technology
    •  New ways of learning with digital education

CAIRO ICT 2021 Conclusion 

Cairo ICT 2021 cannot be described by any means as yet another successful round of the region’s leading technology event, as the 25th round was very special, from its inception to its conclusion on November 10, breaking all records of the same event in the 24 years before, and breaking all records of local, regional and international technology fairs in the past two difficult years, infested with Covid-19 scare around the world.

President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, accompanied by top officials and international dignitaries, was present and his presence along global leaders and top technology experts paved the way to a record number of visitors, with an actual unprecedented figure of visitors from the different walks of life.

The messages the world received during the 4 days of Cairo ICT 2021 and the incorporated events were:

  • “Egypt continues to be open for business”,
  • “Africa is seeking to quench its thirst for progress”,
  • “The Middle East is far from covering its technology needs”,
  • “The world will not be stopped with the current global status”


  • “Cairo ICT is the true technology gem of the Region”.

Cairo ICT 2021 lived up to the slogan it chose for its Silver Jubilee round: “The Digital Challenge… Transform to 2030”. It highlighted the challenge we face with technology and the challenge we face to adopt technology to transform ourselves towards SDG goals of 2030. Discussions among experts spanned around some of the well-known challenges and tackled previously unscathed challenges and opportunities.

Egypt: The Land of Opportunities


The primary market exhibitors sought to explore and build stronger bases in, is certainly Egypt. Unmatched government investments and a growing market, where transformation – foremost digital transformation – were among the reasons why exhibitors from more than 20 countries showed up to display their state-of-the-art technologies and solutions. Accordingly, almost all of them achieved their objectives.

Cairo ICT 2021 was not merely a place to meet and greet but was rather a place for “let’s do business now”. And that was realized in the form of MoUs, contracts and agreements.
