ArabNet is the hub for Arab digital professionals and entrepreneurs to connect and learn.

Arabnet runs a series of events across the MENA region aimed at growing the web and mobile industry and launching
new digital startups. For the third consecutive year, ArabNet is holding the ArabNet Digital Summit in Beirut from
March 27-31, gathering over 1,500 high-profile executives and globally-renowned players.

This year’s summit is going to be even BIGGER! With 2 Developer Days, an all-new Industry day exploring the
ways in which web and mobile are transforming traditional industries, and exciting new formats covering the latest
in digital.

Again, this year ArabNet is providing the opportunity for top entrepreneurs to pitch their digital ideas and startups.
