Please join us to listen to our keynote speakers and participate in interactive sessions on this important theme. The Programme is now available, and we are delighted to announce that our Keynote Speakers, from Emirates Airline, Alibaba, IBM and Thales will be joining us to discuss:                 

  1. How their companies are experimenting with digital technologies. We will learn from real examples and recent success stories.
  2. How this strategy will enhance their competitive positioning which does not solely depend on the technologies they adopt, but more importantly builds on the strategy they deploy.
  3. How their companies dealt with digital transformation challenges and obstacles (e.g. leadership, culture, institutional, etc.) that might stand in the way of a successful digital transformation.
  4. How their firms designed the right experience for their customers.
