WITSA’s flagship event, the World Congress on Innovation and Technology (WCIT), is held in different host countries on an annual basis. First held in 1978, the WCIT is unique in its global perspective on tech issues and its ability to draw users, providers, media and academia from around the world. Global business, government and academic leaders discuss emerging markets, legal and policy issues, political and economic trends, emerging technologies, tech user perspectives and business opportunities in the global marketplace. 

Among the featured speakers are internationally recognized leaders from government and industry. A premier global tech congress, WCIT brings together more than 2,000 global leaders in business, government and academia from over 80 countries to impact economic and social development through the exchange of policies, practices, trends and ideas on tech.

As per WITSA By‐laws, only WITSA members are formally eligible to submit bids to host WITSA’s flagship event. However, other organizations are invited to partner with WITSA members in order to produce high‐quality bids. In such cases, organizations must contact the WITSA members directly.
