“This is a great opportunity for Forest Interactive to be part one of the world's largest and most prestigious ICT events alongside Pikom, and play a role in developing and shaping Malaysia’s digital ecosystem,” said Johary.
Delegates attending WCIT 2022 Malaysia can expect to participate in an engaging and extensive series of keynotes as well as panel, roundtable and plenary discussions, Pikom said.
Sean Seah, Pikom’s chairman said, “This collaborative effort which Pikom has with industry partners allows us to be more impactful and create greater strides as the influential voice of the tech industry.”
“With Forest Interactive at the helm of our visual communications design and specialised email marketing, WCIT 2022 Malaysia is set to be an insightful and transformative experience for the global field of information technology,” said Seah
