Digitec22 Summit

DigiTec Summit is a global conference focused on how emerging technology-oriented countries respond to global challenges and opportunities, and the largest such event in the southern Caucasus region. The conference consists of a series of keynote panel discussions moderated by international technology journalists, and features both in-person and online participation by leading entrepreneurs, executives, policy-makers and members of research and academia. In addition to the keynote panel discussions, the conference also contains thematic breakouts, a variety of networking events, and government-level participation.

Building on the success of the inaugural 2021 edition, Digitec Summit 2022 will address the following topic: “How do emerging countries with large tech ambitions compete on a global scale?” and will feature C-level execs and founders from existing and to-be unicorns from countries such as Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Taiwan (in addition to Armenia, the host country). If you’re part of the tech ecosystem in an emerging technology country, this is the conference for you and your peers.
