An overview of MOI Innovation & Foresight Summit

President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan launched the ‘UAE Strategy for the Future’ in September 2016. This key initiative compliments UAE’s National Innovation Strategy that aims to place the UAE among the most innovative nationals in the world.

Furthermore, the UAE 10x initiative places a major focus on how digital innovation can help government departments harness innovation to secure the future prosperity of the UAE. The objectives of these strategies is to stimulate innovation amongst government entities and to focus their ideas on how to better prepare for the future – to ensure the threats are secured against, and the opportunities are taken advantage of. 

MOI Innovation & Foresight Summit will help bring together the key government stakeholders to focus their innovation into key areas of development that will ensure these goals are met. The event will look closely in to how innovation is being managed in the digital age, as well as how it can be channeled to work towards solving the problems of the future, today.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
