STEP Conference 2019: 6,000 Attendees to Descend on Dubai Internet City

The countdown starts to STEP 2019, the most experiential tech conference in the Middle East, coming to Dubai Internet City (DIC) this February 13-14! Ray Dargham, the founder and the CEO of STEP, says that a vibrant and technological advanced ecosystem like DIC ensures more space for supporting STEP 2019’s fuller program and direct access to essential target audiences. Dargham also stated that DIC empowers organizers to evolve their format, and introduce more excellent and exciting content in the program, which will run for two days.

STEP remains home to the best entrepreneurs, creatives and digital enthusiasts. This event will have more than 250 showcasing startups, over 1,000 participating entrepreneurs and $1 billion available in funding for the most promising entrepreneurs. STEP organizers have partnered with several businesses to make the event a success and meet the desired objectives. The partnership with DIC allows organizers to take over several locations around the information technology park, such as the central lake, American University in the country and the surrounding offices.

Since 2013, the year of the first STEP event, organizers have witnessed a significant rise in the number of attendees. From a series of workshops and gatherings, seven years have transformed the event into the most experiential technology festival in the Middle East. In Dubai, they expect more than 6,000 attendees with a passion for tech and a desire to progress further in entrepreneurship.

The speakers are expected to address some significant topics like the latest trends in entrepreneurship, digital, fintech and the future tech, among other critical factors. The 2019 edition is planned in four different tracks, which are the STEP Start that addresses entrepreneurship and startups, STEP Digital that emphasizes global digital trends, STEP X which addresses futuristic technology and STEP Money that covers fintech, the blockchain, and others. Attendees will have the power to choose from the sessions that focus on the four topical concerns.
