The perfect meeting point, Istanbul ideal host: Webit CEO Russev

ISTANBUL - Anadolu Agency
Istanbul, at the crossroads of Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, was the perfect option for a global digital, technology and telecommunication capital of the future, Webit CEO Plamen Russev said yesterday.

“I am personally furious and very disappointed by the fact that Turkey was not selected for the 2020 Olympics, but to make a comparison, Webit Congress is the Olympics-equivalent of the world’s global digital, tech and Telco industries,” Russev said.

Webit has been held so far in London, Cannes, Barcelona, New York, Cologne and Austin. Russev said Istanbul will be, by far, the biggest congress so far in Webit’s history.

“At the juncture of Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia, Istanbul is the perfect place to engage these markets and to gather the global industry in Turkey,” he added.

The Global Webit Congress, a convergence of global figures across the fields of digital technology and telecommunication, backed by Anadolu Agency as a gold media partner, will be held between Nov. 6-7 at the Haliç Congress Center in Istanbul.

A record number of visiting countries and attendees will participate in the 5th edition of the congress.

Corporate executives from 103 countries will be among more than eight thousand participants. The congress will host 250 presentations in two days from the sector’s leading voices.
