The 10th edition of the Information and Communication Technology Conference ‘MEET ICT’ and the Bahrain International Technology Exhibition (Bitex) will focus on the important role played by the ICT sector in the economic recovery of the Kingdom.

The event, which will be held from March 29 to 31, 2022, is organized by the Bahrain Technology Companies Society (BTECH) in collaboration with ‘WorkSmart for Events Management.’

According to Mr. Abdulaziz Qambar, CEO of Bahrain Technology Companies Society, “The next edition of this technical event will be qualitative by all standards. It will highlight everything related to digital transformation, as well as the ICT sector’s role in supporting economic diversification and increasing its contribution to the kingdom’s gross domestic product (GDP).”
