AIBC Summit to Premiere in Dubai in Corona Response

AIBC Summit to Premiere in Dubai in Corona Response


Due to the Corona pandemic Malta based SiGMA group already twice had to reschedule its flagship event AIBC Summit which then was scheduled to take place late April. It had to be rescheduled again with surprising move. End of May the first AIBC Summit UAE will be in Dubai. Now, the next Malta summit is scheduled for the coming November.

AIBC Summit has announced the launch of its inaugural summit; AIBC UAE. The event, which runs from the 25th to 26th May 2020, will be held in the emirate of Dubai at the InterContinental Festival Arena Dubai, a luxurious location set in the heart of the UAE’s financial and business hub.

“The world has been hungry for in-person events for the better part of a year, and the AIBC UAE super-show will bring the best of emerging tech and innovation to a new destination – uniting investors, regulators, and innovators”, SiGMA group said. During this pandemic Dubai has gained a lot of reputation in hosting safe international events. Since last December none of the scheduled events had to be canceled or reported infectious hotspots.

Eman Pulis, Founder of AIBC said, “We always envisioned AIBC as a meeting point of people from all over the world. Dubai gives us the opportunity to encourage the giants from the West and the East to sit, break bread, and sign deals. This is the life and soul of AIBC – creating an environment where connections are made with little to no effort, and everybody returns home with a smile on their faces – all whilst being safe from COVID!” 

In addition to the previous reason Dubai was also chosen because of its central geographical location. With connections to all major tech and gaming hubs in the industry, this progressive UAE emirate gives AIBC the space to explore new opportunities and move beyond local ambitions – bringing East and West to their natural meeting point. 

Abdelkrim Krid, marketing executive of SiGMA World stresses the premiere aspect: “The AIBC Dubai expo will be the first AIBC event held outside of Malta – marking the company’s move to a more global presence. The two-day event aims to provide a meeting point for East and West, bringing together key brands and individuals to discuss the latest in emerging tech.”

At the early state of preparation mid-March SiGMA had secured the expertise of many global pioneers of the tech industry as the marketing executive explains: “We’ve lined up some cracking speakers for our conferences, including the co-founder of Akoin, Akon, Roger Ver, Tone Vays, Steve Chao, Ben Goertzel, Brock Pierce, Juand Loretta Joseph.” Also the co-founder and director Innovation & TIME of the Diplomatic World Institute, Dieter Brockmeyer, will be on the Dubai stage.

SiGMA includes elements in its conference that already had become popular within the Malta events: “We are also bringing our popular Startup Pitch back. In addition to a space on the expo floor, startups will get the unique chance to compete for a spot in the top 10 and present their project to the judges.” AIBC Dubai is not only a congress but features additional components: “In addition to the daily conferences, the event features a buzzing expo floor, a Pitch competition for startups, and numerous networking opportunities.” 

“This summit will welcome everyone from policy makers to thought leaders from across the globe who share an interest in the emerging sectors of AI, blockchain, IoT, and Quantum Tech”, Krid summarizes the Dubai ambition.
