Connecting Central Asian and American business communities
ENVISIONING THE FUTURE TOGETHER
"Central Asia is the next IT destination" is a platform for key specialists and decision-makers whose ideas push the entire IT industry forward and determine our future as we know it. This IT Forum will connect regional tech leaders with big thinkers, government agencies and business executives in the United States.
This is an excellent opportunity to engage with a rapidly growing sector and region at the first large Central Asian IT event held outside of the region. The U.S. is the perfect starting point for building relationships and partnerships. Our main aims are to stimulate and inspire forum attendees to create, innovate and promote IT products internationally as well as increase exports and attract investors and partners to the region.
