The Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector is driving innovation across the rest of the economic sectors, providing innovative solutions to real-life problems. This innovation is almost always made possible by mutually beneficial partnerships that allow for effective collaboration and quicker identification of opportunities.

International Data Corporation (IDC) is set to bring together ICT leaders from the MEA region at the IDC Alliance flagship event to provide them with unparalleled opportunities to foster solid partner ecosystems and discuss the latest channel and alliance trends.

“Today, technology providers and vendors are presented with a golden opportunity to gain a competitive edge and address the vastly changed needs and demands of customers in a timely and cost-effective manner by seeking out technology and managed services partners,” explains IDC.

The theme of the IDC Alliance event for this year is “BUILD,” and it revolves around the following building blocks for attainable future growth:

  • BUILD a sustainable base of new customers.
  • BUILD a viable marketing strategy.
  • BUILD a long-lasting unique IP.
  • BUILD stronger internal practices.
  • BUILD a deeper support ecosystem.

“As partners hunt for new customers, strive for increased brand awareness, and realize the need to differentiate, a series of BUILD presentations will unlock many of the most common challenges,” adds IDC.

The event will take place from November 8 to November 10 at the InterContinental Resort Fujairah, UAE, a beachfront property located on the shoreline of the Al Aqah beach and beneath the Hajjar mountains.

After check in, the entire first day of the event will be dedicated to an icebreaker dinner on the beach where shorts and flip-flops are welcome. The second day will start with a quick catch-up and continue with a series of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and more informal networking opportunities. A similar program is also planned for the third day, which ends at 15:00 with a sign-up opportunity for the next IDC Alliance event.

If you would like to attend the event, then you can register on its website. Networkers are required to pay a registration fee of $1,500 USD, which covers all accommodation, conferencing, meals, and activities for the duration of the entire event.
