IDC Egypt Directions 2023

Egypt, March 19, 2023


As Egypt’s ICT sector continues to accelerate due to a series of government investments, capacity building initiatives, and training programs, the country is positioning itself as a potential regional technology hub. Despite economic headwinds such as currency volatility, high import duties, and inflation, the government’s monetary strategy is expected to lead to an increased influx of FDI in the longer term.

In the interim, technology continues to disrupt supply chains in numerous industries, fueling growth in areas such as ecommerce, direct-to-consumer services, digital payments, and cloud kitchens. Propelled by an enabling government and massive digital transformation projects, organizations across Egypt are implementing business and IT strategies, long-term investment road maps, numerous diversification and industrialization initiatives, and mega projects for 2023 and beyond.

Join us for the Egypt edition of IDC Directions 2023 to exchange ideas and network with some of the country's most prominent ICT executives. The event’s agenda will cover multiple topics, including the current state of the digital economy, its ongoing impact on investment decisions, the key challenges that need to be overcome, and proven best practices and strategies for driving future success.  Senior local and global IDC analysts will also share their forecasts and predictions for technology markets in the country and across the wider region.
