The 16th World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2008) has received overwhelming response to its sale of delegate tickets, with 2,716 delegates booked for the global forum on information and communications technology (ICT) on May 18 – 22, 2008.
As a result, the organizers have closed all channels for delegate registration including online and facsimile. On-site walk-ins will also not be available on the event dates.
Announcing this, WCIT 2008 Chief Executive Officer Dan E. Khoo said: “The global interest in WCIT 2008 has been phenomenal. We have actually exceeded our stretched target of 2,500 delegates. Traditional delegate sizes during previous editions of the World Congress on Information Technology have averaged 1,800 so we are truly enthused by the show of support for the event that Malaysia is hosting.”
“We are extremely grateful to all parties involved and would like to thank the delegates and our stakeholders, the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA), the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and the Association of the Computer and Multimedia Industry of Malaysia (PIKOM) for their efforts in helping us exceed our targets before the event.”
16th World Congress on Information Technology
Kuala Lumpur is set to be the point of convergence for the largest-ever gathering of global leaders and decision makers on information and communications technology (ICT) during the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2008).
Held once every two years, WCIT is the premier global forum that brings together leaders in business, government and academia to impact economic and social development through the exchange of policies and ideas on technology.
The 16th edition of an event often billed as the ‘Olympics of ICT’, WCIT 2008 is expected to be the point of convergence for more than 2,500 participants from over 80 countries worldwide.
|“No single event can offer the scope of opportunities and potential to grow your business on a global scale as WCIT.”
George C. Newstrom, Chairman of the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA), rightsholder of WCIT.
|“It is significant that WCIT 2008 will be held in Malaysia. Through our geographic location and cultural diversity, we are ideally-placed to be the gateway into the emerging knowledge economies of Asia and from Asia to the rest of the world.”
Dato’ Badlisham Ghazali, Chairman of WCIT 2008.
