Ukrainian IT-industry first time on Davos World Economic Forum

Ukrainian IT-industry first time on Davos World Economic Forum

For the first time in the history of the World Economic Forum (Davos, Switzerland) - platforms for discussing global trends and challenges by global political and business leaders - Ukrainian IT industry will be represented on the same platform - Ukrainian House, which Team will be "Ukraine: Creativity, Innovation, Opportunity".

The main goal of the Ukrainian House is to present Ukraine as an integral part of the European community, a country full of technological innovations, bright ideas and talented highly skilled professionals. 

The Ukrainian House will be open to visitors and guests from January, 22-26, 2018, and will function alongside with other events from leading international companies to be held at the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum. Within the framework of the site there will be a number of meetings and panel discussions, during which representatives of the Ukrainian business will present to their leading international businessmen and experts their cases in such high-tech segments as Digital Transformation, Agritech, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Blockchain and many other advanced areas.

The IT-industry will be represented by the member companies of the IT Ukraine Association: ELEKS, EPAM, Innovecs, Intellias, N-iX, PwC, SoftServe and Ciklum, which serves as the golden sponsor of the Ukrainian House. The IT Ukraine Association supports the project with the status of a silver sponsor.  

The Ukrainian House in Davos is a great opportunity to demonstrate to Ukraine's business and political elite the potential of Ukraine in the field of cutting-edge technology and creative industries. Despite the success of our developers in the global market, there are still "white spots" in the perception of international potential clients and investors in the Ukrainian IT-industry. Opening with our partners at the Davos Ukrainian House during the annual WEF meeting, we aim to make a qualitative contribution to shaping the image of Ukraine as a powerful technological center and reliable business partner

Oleksander Kubrakov, Executive Director of the IT Ukraine Association
