Honouring the best in technology

It's time once again to recognise regional excellence in ICT leadership. There is no better way than through the seventh annual ICT Achievement Awards, which will be held on October 16, 2016 at the Conrad Hotel in Dubai.
CNME's ICT Achievement Awards recognise individuals and organisations that have delivered ground-breaking business value through the innovative application of technologies.
Nominees will be reviewed and judged by a panel comprising industry experts based on their achievements as demonstrated by the depth and breadth of initiatives, innovation and specific measurable results.
This year, the ICT Achievement Awards will have a similar nomination process to 2015, whereby nominations may be submitted by an organisation itself, by public relations professionals representing a nominated organisation, or by solution providers/partners of a nominated organisation.
All the nominations are due before 21st September 2016.
