STEP, widely recognized tech and experimental conferences in the MENA region, is all set to get a makeover for its sixth edition, scheduled on March 28 and 29, 2018.

Among other things, STEP 2018 will be designed to reflect the drastic transformation the global tech ecosystem has undergone over the past few years. The action-packed event will include one main stage and four industry-focused conferences.

The schedule and the format of STEP 2018 are such that it will allow more speakers to address various topical industry issues at great length. Additionally, the event will also have leading experts shedding insight into opportunities and challenges that await the realms of FinTech, entrepreneurship, digitization, smart cities, and transportation.

“We are living in exciting times where new technology is completely redefining how we live, work and play. The rate of disruption is accelerating thanks to a thriving startup scene here in the MENA region. It’s important that STEP continues to inspire and support innovation amongst this community with a platform that really caters to their needs. Our new home in Dubai Internet City allows us to evolve the STEP format to deliver even more great content and facilitate stronger connections within the region’s leading technology hub,” said Ray Dargham, CEO, STEP Group.
