Virginia, USA - May 23, 2024 – The World Innovation, Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA) is excited to announce the 28th World Congress on Innovation and Technology (WCIT) 2024, scheduled for October 4-7, 2024 in Yerevan, Armenia. This year’s theme, “The Power of Mind: AI Beyond Limits, Within Ethics” is set to transform the  gathering into a seminal platform for global technology leaders, innovators, policy makers and entrepreneurs to influence the discourse on technological innovation within ethical boundaries. 

WITSA Chairman Dato’ Dr. Sean Seah highlighted, “WCIT 2024 in Armenia is a unique opportunity to bring together the brightest minds in technology from across the globe. With Armenia emerging as a significant tech hub, the congress will provide a platform for our members to witness firsthand the innovations in AI and other cutting-edge technologies that are shaping our future.” 

This year’s WCIT 2024 will convene alongside DigiTec, the region's largest annual event dedicated to innovation and technology. 

Armenia’s rapidly growing tech ecosystem, bolstered by supportive government policies and a vibrant startup culture, makes it an ideal location for WCIT 2024. The event will provide unparalleled opportunities for networking, collaboration, and showcasing the latest technological advancements, particularly in the realm of AI.

WITSA CEO Dato’ Dan E Khoo further emphasized, “Innovation flourishes  in environments where policy objectives align with voluntary, consensus-driven standardization. To foster the beneficial adoption of AI, regulatory frameworks should be flexible and supportive, ensuring  they do not stifle creativity or slow technological advancement. By adhering to key policy principles, we encourage the development of AI solutions that are both innovative and ethically sound. The theme of WCIT 2024 - Digitec provides the perfect backdrop for these important deliberations, highlighting the balance between innovation and ethics in tech and AI.”

WCIT 2024 - Digitec will also debut the  WITSA World Cup Global Finals featuring 32 teams from 16 countries.
