The World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2019) opens in Yerevan and will last three days from October 6 to 9
WCIT is the signature event of the World Information Technology & Services Alliance (WITSA). WITCA is the consortium of ICT associations of 83 countries, representing 90% of the IT industry. For 40 years, technology leaders—CEOs and investors, policy makers and government officials, academics and technologists—have joined in this annual event to discuss the state of the industry, where it is headed, and what it means for our future.
In previous years, WCIT was hosted by Brasília, Brazil’s capital city, Taipei and India’s Hayderabad.
Over 2,500 from 70 countries are participating in this year’s Congress. This year, WCIT will address The Power of Decentralization: Promise and Peril and explore how information and communications technology is transforming our lives for better and for worse, and its impact on profits and prosperity, safety and security, democracy and humanity.
The Congress is hosted by Armenia with the support and under the high patronage of the Government of the Republic of Armenia, and the main organizing body is the Union of Advanced Technology Enterprises (UATE).
