Some 5,000 IT professionals are expected to make the most of what promises to be a fantastic networking platform at ICT Summit Eurasia 12, to be held Sept. 11-13 at the Haliç Congress Center, featuring more than 300 speakers from 30 countries.

“ICT Summit Eurasia has evolved into a platform where the steps we will take tomorrow will be defined today. Therefore, the main theme of the event is ‘The Next Step,’” said a statement from Interpromedya, the company that has organized the event since the year 2000.

The summit will feature “matching meetings,” designed to bring the right people together to create new and fertile relationships in the information technology field. The summit is supported by Turkey’s Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Economy, EU Ministry, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Industry, and the Institution of Information Technologies and Communication.

“Key actors in information and communication technologies, such as the European Telecom Operators Union (ETNO), the Telecom Council of South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa (SAMENA), as well as the organizing companies, the directors of IT NGOs and IT professionals from many countries will participate in the summit,” the statement said.

The summit predominantly brings together professionals and politicians from the Middle East, Turkic, Caucasus and Balkan countries. The main sponsor of the event is Vodafone, a leading mobile phone operator.

Charles Eisenstein, the author of “The Sacred Economy,” will be among the event’s star attendees.
