One of the marked characteristics of the US$ 400 billion Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry globally over the last few years has been the evolution from cost to quality. As a comparatively new player in the market, Egypt has been able to emerge – with a strong value proposition - to take advantage of this new era in BPO.
To help achieve its aim of promoting Egypt within the ICT sector, ITIDA has established a new event strategy that will see it exhibiting at some of the world's leading industry events. The primary objective of this strategy is to raise awareness of what Egypt has to offer to local and multinational organizations and to showcase its dynamism as a world-class outsourcing location.
The main objectives of the program are:
Offers the opportunity for companies to participate under the Egyptian Pavilion in the most exposed and highly rated IT events around the world as part of the Egyptian delegation. Companies are offered a particular package to participate as exhibitors under ITIDA's auspices in a branded country pavilion in specific events. For more information about ITIDA's annual events calendar, please check the events section from the main webpage.
It is meant for a specific trade fair that is not included on ITIDA's annual collective events calendar, does not witness the participation of an Egyptian pavilion and/or is only targeted by a few number of companies due to various reasons. The "single intervention" service is designed to encourage IT companies to apply for the financial support and gain access to such specific events either in the local or international markets.
The "Business Trips" program is designed to encourage IT companies to gain more access to the international markets and engage with new clients aboard and even to maintain their relationship with their existing pool of clients outside the local market. This program applies to small and medium size companies with business travels or journeys to discuss business matters with clients or engage in any business-related activity while the travel costs are cited as one of the main cost burdens and obstacles for doing business for them.
The financial support offered by ITIDA starting from 2012 is directly related to the number of participations of the company in the event in question. In other words, ITIDA covers 80% of the total participation fees for first time participants and 70% for second time participants in the same event, 60% for third time in the same event, and 25% for the fourth time or more.
Companies participating in the events program should meet the following eligibility criteria:
In order to select the final participating companies, ITIDA applies the following criteria on all requested companies:
Each company at the end of the selection process will be granted a final score and companies are chosen according to the final scores and according to the required number of participants needed which varies from an event to another .
Registration for the collective events service is usually opened a couple of months before the event dates. Interested companies should check ITIDA's website on a regular basis for updated information about the registration dates. Also, companies registered on ITIDA's online database should receive email notifications with all the updates regarding the registration and available packages for the collective events service.
