Welcome Message

Dear Industry Leaders,

After its successful launch last year, the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority, ADDA, is once again delighted to host the Digital Next Summit in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Mandated to drive the digital transformation of government across key areas, including government services, shared government solutions, data and applied intelligence, cyber-security, and ecosystem enablement, ADDA fully supports the Abu Dhabi government’s intended provision of integrated service experiences, creating digital solutions for challenges and fostering innovation.

With the accelerated implementation of digital transformation initiatives around the globe in both public and private sectors, the Digital Next Summit 2022, hosted by the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority and organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East, is the ideal platform to foster new partnerships and discuss opportunities for cooperation towards enhancing the digital transformation ecosystem.

ADDA works with government entities to promote a range of initiatives developed to engage citizens in using the latest technologies available to enhance their lives. We prioritise new ecosystem enablement initiatives and develop strategies, standards and policies that foster a vibrant digital society in Abu Dhabi, and we continually strive to sustain operational excellence to ensure the delivery of impactful results. As digital technology reshapes the future of society, ADDA remains committed to close collaboration with government entities and the private sector to deliver innovative solutions for the needs of the government, businesses and citizens.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us at the 2nd edition of the Digital Next Summit in Abu Dhabi, where global experts will share their experiences and explore new ideas to harness the power of digital technologies to lead our digital future. I look forward to welcoming you at the summit.

Kind regards,

H.E. Dr. Mohamed AbdelHameed Al Askar
Director General, Abu Dhabi Digital Authority
