ANDICOM 2021, the region’s benchmark international ICT (Information & Communications Technology) Congress, returns to an in-person modality this November 17-19, 2021, at the Cartagena de Indias Convention Center, expecting approximately 2,000 participants attending with biosafety measures and capacity in each one of the stages of the Convention Center.
After the event was forced online last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theme of this year’s ANDICOM 2021 is: “Build more results + Flexible + Agile + Digital.” ANDICOM’s stated objective is to be the meeting point where supply and demand for technology-based solutions across industries meet, where business opportunities are generated, and the latest technological and policy trends are revealed.
“At CINTEL we are pleased to return to face-to-face events, to meet again and to offer the industry themes aligned with flexibility, agility and digital as tools to ensure economic recovery, taking into account that the massive use of ICT is the engine for this and for the social growth of the country,” said Manuel Martínez Niño, Executive Director of CINTEL, ANDICOM’s organizer.
