More than 150 companies, about 20 of which are African, will take part from 14 to 16 March at the Palace of Culture “Moufdi Zakaria” in the 3rd International Fair of Information and Communication Technologies “ICT Maghreb 2023,” where a large space will be devoted to Africa.
This event will be an opportunity for the 150 exhibitors to showcase their latest innovations in information and communication technology, according to MM Communication, the initiator of the exhibition.
The event includes a host of new features, including “ICT Africa”, a pavilion with exhibitors from 22 African countries.
“This will be a great opportunity for partners and participants of the ICT Maghreb to build business relationships and partnerships with African companies and startups,” said the organisers.
The other new feature is “ICT Healthcare”, which focuses on technological advances in the field of health, highlighting cutting-edge technologies such as telemedicine, telemonitoring, teleradiology and connected devices, to improve patient care and monitoring.
According to the organisers, the National Health Barometer will be released at the same time, providing an overview of current health trends in Africa and the challenges to improving quality of care.
Considered as a “real technological window”, the ICT Maghreb also devotes a “Demonstration and experimentation” zone, offering the opportunity to discover the latest market trends and the most recent digital solutions.
The event will also include the organisation of a competition entitled “JunctionX Algiers” which brings together, through technological means, companies and young innovative talents with ideas in order to implement them.
“ICT Maghreb has joined this competition, inspired by a Finnish competition, which gives more visibility to young innovative talents. The aim is to find technical solutions to industrial or social problems”, said the same source.
The exhibition, expected to welcome “more than 10,000 visitors” from professionals and students, intends to be a space for exchanges between ICT actors, bringing together telecom operators, Internet service providers, hardware providers, integrators, software editors, equipment manufacturers, financial institutions and government organisations.
In this respect, “B2B”, “Human Resources” and “Training” zones have been dedicated to the visitors of this 2500m² exhibition.
Several conferences and debates will be organised on the sidelines of the exhibition on themes dealing with the challenges of digitisation in Africa, African cooperation in the field of start-ups and entrepreneurship and the financing of start-ups in Africa.
Other topics are also on the agenda of this event. These include panels dealing with the digitalisation and transformation of the finance sector, the digital Dinar, cybersecurity and agritech.
