Placed under the High Patronage of King Mohammed VI, and under the aegis of the Ministry of Industry, Investment, Commerce and Digital Economy, the 4th edition of AFRICA IT EXPO, flagship event of the IT sector, will be held on October 24 and 25, at the Sofitel Jardin des Roses in Rabat.
This International Business Forum, organized by APEBI, Federation of Information Technologies, Telecommunications and Offshoring, in partnership with AMDIE, Moroccan Agency for Investment and Export Development and ADD, Agency of digital development, is entirely dedicated to information technologies.
AITEX is now part of the annual agenda of key events for professionals in the IT sector.
This year, AITEX is full of innovation, advanced technologies, inspiring conferences and new experiences. The theme chosen for this edition is: “Make Digital a new resource of AFRICA and a growth engine”. Two countries will be in the spotlight: the Republic of Congo and the Republic of China.
AITEX will provide an opportunity for all stakeholders on the continent and elsewhere to discuss the latest innovations in the IT sector and their economic and societal impacts. Four main themes will be discussed, namely: Citizen centric, Future of Work, Reverse Innovation and DeepTech.
Other topics will be treated in the form of Workshops, such as the “Blockchain”, “Cybersecurity” or “Digital Banking”.
As usual, the event will offer multiple opportunities for companies and startups to develop their networks, discuss new ideas and meet many clients.
AITEX will also be the occasion for APEBI to celebrate its thirties during a gala dinner and to present its white paper. This book is the result of an initiative led by the Federation among all its partners and stakeholders sensitive to IT, in order to gather their visions and their recommendations around the development of this key sector at the level of national.
“AITEX acts as a platform that provides an opportunity for many companies to collaborate and interact with technology leaders, ecosystem players, institutional players, telecom operators, startups, schools and the media,” says Mrs. Saloua Karkri Belkeziz, President of APEBI.
As such, it should be recalled that Africa is a market in full digital transformation where the digital revolution is in full swing and where the use of new technologies is spreading more and more. This digital development in Africa is likely to facilitate local and regional economic development.
