    Celebrating creativity in all walks of life; a motto and a mission that has always been the focal point of the Creative Industry Summit since its beginning in 2014. Through the past years, the forum has kept a steady pace, organising the summit not once, but twice a year; the main, and the Ramadan edition.

    This year’s edition, which happens to be the 10th  of its kind, takes place at Four Seasons Nile Plaza on the 26th and 27th of March and gathers a host of local and international experts in four main areas; food innovations, e-commerce and technology, personal branding, and, of course, advertising, the central pillar of every summit. Having the lion’s share in the summit’s four sessions, advertising – and its constant evolution in both global and local markets – won’t be the only topic discussed over the two days.

    On the 26th, topics like the latest techniques that turned the market upside down in the field of E-commerce and technology will be delved into, as well as how to build strong communication platforms through personal branding, while the 27th sees experts exploring the innovative future of the food industry. As such, the summit will be home to an amazing line-up of speakers. Don’t believe us? Here’s a glimpse of the line-up: 

    John Salley, the summit’s Keynote Speaker, is a NBA Champion, a Hollywood Star, and the Chief Visionary Officer at Ethos Media. As per the topics of E-commerce and Technology, Rick Baba, Creative Director at Verizon Media’s RYOT; Herve Bizira, Head of R&D at Verizon Media’s RYOT; Zak Dytchwald, author of Young China (2018); and Maged Farrag, Creative and Managing Director at 5D VR will all be speaking at the summit. 

    As for the topics of Advertising, Media, and Marketing, Meryl El Afifi, Executive Creative Director at Momentum; famous TV Host, Rana Arafa; Ahmed Abbas Founder & CEO of Sun City Energy; and Hashem Al-Borno, Co-Founder and E-sports Manager at Gamers Lounge, will be speaking at the summit. Last, but most definitely not least, Lulu’s Kitchen will be there to discuss the topic of Food Innovation.
