Business events are set to restart in Dubai, with 16 July seeing the start of the emirate’s first major live in-person leadership business event organised by Dubai World Trade Centre.

The AI Everything x Restart Dubai Summer Conference, hosted by the National Program of Artificial Intelligence, will celebrate the United Arab Emirate’s AI efforts during this time of pandemic.

The event promises exclusive face-to-face conversations with government and private sector leaders from healthcare, education, retail, e-commerce, tourism and hospitality.

“The support and enthusiasm from our speakers, exhibitors, partners, the wider business community and our very own team have been so exceptional,” said Executive Vice-President, Dubai World Trade Centre, Trixie LohMirmand.

Held on Thursday 16th of July at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the conference will be one of the first physical exhibitions to be held since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic earlier this year.

As the world emerges from the shadow of the Covid 19 pandemic, connectivity will play an integral role in facilitating every aspect of people’s lives, from online shopping and banking services to working and studying from home initiatives. Artificial Intelligence will be the cornerstone that underpins our connected society, with 5G, WiFi 6 and fibre to the premises connectivity putting the GCC at the cutting edge of connected society initiatives.

A new survey, commissioned by Deloitte, shows that 53 per cent of enterprise IT firms are expecting to invest more than $20 million on AI led initiatives over the course of the next year.

The AI Everything Summer Conference 2020 will showcase the most influential decision makers from across a range of industry verticals from the UAE’s business sectors, including speeches from executives from Careem, Dubai Airports and Jumeirah Group. The conference agenda will also hear from a number of UAE government officials, who will be expertly placed to provide fascinating insights into the role that AI will play in the development of the country.

The conference will begin with a key note address, delivered by H.E. Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, UAE Minister of State, Digital Economy, Artificial Intelligence and Teleworking Applications. During his address, His Excellency will outline how the Covid 19 pandemic has led the country to rethink, realign and synchronise its priorities in order to accelerate digital transformation in the UAE.

The AI Everything x Restart Dubai Summer Conference will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 16th July 2020.
