About the Event

Data 2030 Summit is the premier annual event bringing together the Data Management community to accelerate Data Innovation and AI deployment across enterprises. This exclusive roundtable fosters discussions on developing, scaling, and maintaining cutting-edge Data Management strategies, platforms, and architectures for the new algorithmic decade.

Over the past eight years, Data 2030 Summit has evolved into a global knowledge-sharing and networking powerhouse, connecting data practitioners from the Nordics, MEA, APAC, and ANZ regions. It’s more than an event—it’s a movement driving companies towards accelerated data and AI transformation.

This year, the MEA Data Management community will have the unique opportunity to attend two editions of the summit, one in Riyadh and one in Dubai. These tailored agendas address both local and regional challenges, offering a wealth of insights into the latest practices and technologies, alongside unparalleled opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing.

Here’s a glimpse of why the Data 2030 Summit sells out every year well before the event begins:

Limited to
200 Delegates

To maintain the networking and knowledge-sharing experience, this round table summit is limited to a maximum of 200 on site participants. Speakers and exhibitors are carefully pre-qualified and selected to match the current regional market challenges, and provide outstanding content and insights relevant to the participants attending. The event has been sold out way in advance, in every one of the past 6 editions in any of the Europe, MEA and APAC Editions.

Topic Related Round
Table Discussions

Along the presentations, we have reserved time for interactive roundtables. This is a good time for your voice to be heard, to share your ideas and your challenges, or to simply benchmark your strategy with your peers. The duration of the roundtables is 40 minutes and in English. After the first 40 minutes roundtable session, delegates will rotate and take their seat on another roundtable for another 45 minute session.

Leading Technology
Providers

Delegates attending the summit on-site will have the opportunity to visit the Exhibition Area and explore some of the most cutting-edge technologies and meet the best technology and service providers in the area. Some of them exhibiting for the first time in the MEA region. To make it more transparent and relevant for you, the demos presented during the summit will be listed in the agenda and on the event webpage.

Need-to-know and
Up-to-date Topics

The agenda is carefully designed to match the delegate community challenges and needs. Based on the last year’s feedback and our pre-event research, we have constructed the agenda that emulates the current market maturity, current project objectives, as well the aspiration for future technology insight.

A Data Mastery Day with
Three Stages

On this edition, during the conference day, delegates will have the opportunity to choose between three super insightful and interactive tracks focusing on Data Strategy, Data Governance and Quality and and Enterprise and Cloud Architecture.

Networking
Program

In addition to extending the on-site part of the conference to three stages, we bring the event participants closer together through an informal event format. Once the conference day is finished, we are inviting the delegates to a networking program, starting with a cocktail reception..

Plenum

The keynote presentations are the pillars of the entire conference and the most memorable presentations of the event. As opening plenary talks, they set the tone of the entire conference, tie all themes together and provide excitement on the presentations that are about to come. This year’s keynote list includes visionaries and leading expert names in Data and Information Management.

Interactive
Panels

Over the conference days, the delegates will have the opportunity to take part in several interactive panels composed by practitioners and experts. The panels will cover several important topics covering everything from strategy to people, implementation, processes, and technology. The panelists invited are experts and practitioners in the area representing companies in the MEA region and beyond. All panels are in duration of 40 minutes and in English.

1 Region. 2 Events. 2 cities.

We are extremely excited to announce a second event edition in the MEA region, this one hosted in Riyadh.

Alongside the event in Dubai, this year, the MEA Data Management community will have the unique opportunity to attend two editions of the summit. These tailored agendas address both local and regional challenges, offering a wealth of insights into the latest practices and technologies, as well as unparalleled opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this transformative experience. Secure your spot at the Data 2030 Summit and join the movement driving the future of data and AI.
