IDC AI Roadshow 2024

Redefining Digital Business Through AI-Led Innovation

Jumeirah Mina A'Salam, Dubai, United Arab Emirates



AI has become one of the most important technologies for organizations around the world. Indeed, IDC's latest forecast indicates that META region spending on AI is growing at CAGR of 29.9% and will reach $6.8 billion in 2026. The recent rise of generative AI is being hailed as the great disruptor of every facet of life and business, providing smarter, faster, more scalable, lower-cost, and higher-value solutions. At the enterprise level, AI is being incorporated into existing enterprise technology environments such as code generation, content management, marketing and CX applications, and product design and engineering.

Yet, with all the promise of AI comes important questions about the impact it will have on our lives, businesses, and broader society. This exclusive event will feature insights from senior IDC analysts and technology executives as they explore the very latest AI adoption trends. A series of keynote presentations and panel discussions will provide invaluable insights for every CIO and CTO looking to commit time and intellectual capital to ensure their organizations are fully prepared to avoid missteps and capitalize quickly on the potential of AI across both IT and business.
