Definitely, the show was in the right direction to help governments achieve their AI goals and objectives. I saw a lot of interesting topics at the show that was needed to focus in the UAE market

The delegates at the event were some of the smartest individuals we’ve met, and who are also interested to learn more. This benefited us because we’re a global machine learning company for cyber defense

WSE is fully aligned with the UAE government’s objectives. I’m glad to be part of this show. Thank you to the team!

The speakers lineup were pretty fascinating. WSE should carry on organising more such productive events in future. I’d recommend all the Startups to be part of the show

Speakers and the topics discussed met with the industry standard of requirements. The event engaged us and motivated us to continue doing business in our respective field

WSE has opened multiple doors to startups. They could interact with customers, as well get a feel of the technology wave that the market and their competitions are riding on, which benefited them from a business p.o.v
