Leap 2024 Event

In the past few years, we’ve witnessed a “shockwave” in Saudi Arabia for technology. This is where ambitious initiatives are aimed at digital transformation and innovation. At the forefront of this transformation is the annual tech event, LEAP, taking Riyadh and the world by storm.

LEAP, short for “Leading Edge Annual Professionals,” is synonymous with excellence and innovation. It has made itself a pivotal platform for showcasing cutting-edge technologies, fostering innovation and collaboration, and driving the mighty kingdom’s digital agenda forward.

Join us as we take a “LEAP” in digital transformation and how it is shaping Saudi Arabia’s future.

The Rise of Tech in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has been making significant strides in making the best out of technology and innovation as a part of its Vision 2030 agenda. With a strong focus on diversifying its economy and reducing dependence on oil, Saudi Arabia has identified technology as a key driver of growth and development.

Initiatives like Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program (NTP) have laid the foundation for a vibrant tech ecosystem, fostering entrepreneurship, attracting foreign investment, and nurturing homegrown talent. SkyTrust is the perfect example of what Saudi Arabia has in mind for the coming years, and SkyTrust being a digital transformation company is all set to compliment that vision and back it up every inch of the way.
