STEP Conference, a technology festival for emerging markets, has launched its ninth edition under the theme “The World in Dubai.” The festival would be held on Feb. 11 and 12 this year. The event will be held in association with Dubai Internet City (DIC) and the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism).
STEP 2020 is expected to attract over 8,000 international attendees, 300 showcasing startups, and influential tech leaders and speakers who would talk about latest topics and trends across key industries.
The event would feature latest innovations highlighting the opportunities in the ecosystem and would take place at DIC with a format of four main conference verticals: STEP Start, STEP Digital, STEP X, and STEP Money.
To quote Ray Dargham, the CEO of STEP, “I am very excited to launch STEP for its ninth consecutive year. We have witnessed the development of what started as a conference for entrepreneurs in the Arab world and the Middle East to grow exponentially in becoming a global STEP Conference in Dubai, attracting top speakers, startups, and influential investors from all over the world and specifically from the emerging markets across Asia and Africa. As we enter a new era for STEP next year, in line with Expo 2020 and Vision 2021, we plan to attract entrepreneurs, startups, and tech companies that could potentially expand to Dubai and impact our business and talent landscape.”
Issam Kazim, the CEO of Dubai Tourism said, “STEP offers the ideal platform for entrepreneurs to bring forward the latest technologies and innovations and will cement the emirate’s position as a leading technology hub for startups looking to progress and succeed in their fields.”
