The 9th Arab Advisors Convergence Summit will take place on the 22 and 23 of May 2012 in Amman, Jordan. The summit will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel and will convene to deliberate market trends and growth strategies in the TMT space, including cloud-based services and revenue models.

HRH Princess Sumaya Bint El Hassan will address the summit at the opening ceremony, and the main sponsorship will be through Saudi Telecom, STC. Supplementary sponsorship will come from Motorola, Orange, Umniah, Qualcomm, Zain and Ericsson.

Jawad Jalal Abbassi, founder and GM of Arab Advisors Group said: “Convergence dynamics and the rise of cloud-based services are markedly impacting the regional TMT landscape. Startups are mushrooming in many Arab markets to leverage the new opportunities.

Ghassan Hasbani, CEO of STC International said: “The industry is undergoing transformational changes, probably the largest since the invention of mobile telephony, coinciding with a prolonged economic downturn.
