The Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago through the Ministry of Public Administration in partnership with the National Information and Communication Technology Company Limited (iGovTT) and the e-Business Roundtable is pleased to announce the hosting of the 2nd Trinidad and Tobago ICT Business and Innovation Symposium. This event, currently the only one of its kind in the Caribbean region, is carded for November 14 – 16, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency, Trinidad.
The theme of the two-day Symposium, “ICT Innovation – Staying Ahead” brings together regional and international Governmental organisations and Non-Governmental organisations, Technology Partners, Industry Leaders, Business Innovators and Academia to influence the future direction of ICT policies and programmes in the region. The on-going discussion and debate on ICT (information and communication technology) as a tool for economic development continues from “ICT: A Driver for National Transformation”, the first ICT and Innovation Business Symposium which was hosted in 2008. This year’s agenda is designed to pay close attention to current local and regional opportunities that will aid in the effort to shape the future adoption and implementation of ICTs.
The Symposium boasts two internationally renowned keynote speakers; Chris Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of Wired Magazine and author of bestselling books, The Long Tail and Free and Soumitra Dutta, the Roland Berger Chaired Professor of Business and Technology and Academic Director of eLab @ INSEAD. These speakers will offer cutting-edge insight into the new trends, challenges and solutions that we need to know about in the Global Economy 2.0. as well as lead in-depth discussion on Social networks, Social Media and Enterprise 2.0. The event also incorporates a series of panel discussions, plenary and break-out sessions on key issues linking ICTs to policy development, business development, heath, education, sustainable development and public private partnerships.
In business, the strong lives for the present day but it is the innovator that lives on for tomorrow. This Symposium is exactly the event that accommodates the bold innovators, first movers and those with a keen eye for translating and channelling new concepts and ideas into fresh service and product offerings. Additionally, the Symposium caters to an ICT savvy and knowledgeable set of users who can keep abreast with the innovations and put them to good use. If you fancy yourself a leader, a visionary or someone with a finger on the pulse of the market, then the ICT Business and Innovation Symposium is certainly the place to be.
