Saudi Arabia is set to bring together the global technology community as it plays host to a technology event, called ‘LEAP’.
The country said the event, slated to hold in February 2022 in Riyadh, would become a global platform for the innovation ecosystem, connecting pioneers and disruptors with business and government leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and more to experience and learn about the technologies of the future.
The Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Abdullah Alswaha, said in a statement, “Technology and innovation have enormous potential to transform economies and societies.
“We live in a time where you either leap or be left behind. We are proud to host LEAP to help the region lead and leapfrog with technology and innovation.”
According to the statement, over 700 technology start-ups are set to showcase their solutions to the world at the event.
“Informa are delighted to have launched LEAP in Saudi Arabia. It is clear to us that with the enormous technology projects happening in the country, there is no hub in the world better placed to host such an amazing event,” the Regional Executive Vice President of Informa Markets (organisers of the event), Mike Champion, said.
