In 2019 Messe Frankfurt Middle East GmbH launched Digital Next supported by Abu Dhabi Digital Authority. This much-coveted event provided a unique insight into enabling the government of the future through digital transformation, leading to the successful Digital Next Leadership series which was delivered online throughout 2021.

It is therefore with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the second edition of Digital Next which was to take place at the Etihad Arena later this month, this due to the much-documented Global challenges that continue to create uncertainty and the ever-diminishing time available to create an event experience aligned to the aspirations of all involved.

We would like to sincerely thank our advisory board, sponsors, partners, speakers and suppliers for their extraordinary support, with our looking forward to furthering market-leading collaboration in the future.
