Forest Interactive is proud to join the World Congress on Innovation &Technology (WCIT 2022) Malaysia as a bronze sponsor after a brief pandemic-related postponement last year. Currently in its 26th edition, the global event returns this year from September 13 to 15, 2022 in Penang.

Organized by the National ICT Association of Malaysia (PIKOM), WCIT 2022 Malaysia is strategically enabled by MDEC and the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia, and hosted by the Penang State Government.

“The partnership is an extension of Forest Interactive’s long-standing membership with PIKOM,” shared Johary Mustapha, Founder and CEO of Forest Interactive. “After receiving the Rising Digital Leader Award at the PIKOM Unicorn Tech Awards 2021, we wanted to strengthen our efforts towards championing the Malaysian technology industry and renew our commitment towards PIKOM’s initiatives.”

Dubbed the 'Olympics of the World’s Information Technology Industry', WCIT 2022 Malaysia will play host to impactful discussions between visionaries, captains of industry, government leaders, innovators and academics from over 80 countries. Notable speakers include:
  • Dato’ Hock E. Tan, President and CEO of Broadcom Inc

“As the tech gateway to Southeast Asia, WCIT 2022 Malaysia will be instrumental in connecting, driving, and transforming global technology businesses,” continues Johary. “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.”

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. As a global ICT event that aims to power conversations that connect, transform and grow, the three-day world congress will cover key topics such as Edutech, SEA Unicorns, Cybersecurity, National Digital Agendas and ICT Policy Priorities.

“We are happy to have on board Forest Interactive supporting WCIT 2022.
