Emerging Technologies

Taking the next leap without jumping the gun

May 31 - June 09, 2022


About the Event

We are never done exploring and inventing. It is in our nature. Emerging technologies are for the business leaders who have trouble accepting what is known and wish to find out what lies beyond their current capabilities. Yet, caution should always dictate our way forward. There are numerous developments that marginally improve business value or are even an outright disaster. Emerging technology may have a dark side that only appears during the process of implementation. This convention attempts to filter fact from fantasy so that we may pave a highway rather than a trail into the future. This year’s event will be part of a bigger happening: ME Executive Day. Here we will gather multiple IT target groups under one roof. Next to gathering Tech leaders and CxO's responsible for Emerging Technologies, we will also welcome other IT end responsibility on Cloud and Digital. Together we’ll explore best practices, share learnings, and co-transform. Join us!
