The first Global Distributed Cloud Storage Summit to be held in the United Arab Emirates will take place in Abu Dhabi from December 15 – 17 2021. Hosted by the Abu Dhabi Convention & Exhibition Bureau, part of the Department of Culture and Tourism, DCS 2021 will play a key role in the UAE’s economic development, and support ADCEB’s vision of championing the emirate as a dynamic host of leading global business events.

Part of the Blockchain World event, DCS 2021, which will be held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, will attract blockchain experts, investors, innovators, entrepreneurs, conglomerates, tech followers and crypto supporters from around the world. The Summit, which organisers plan to make an annual event, will also work to position the UAE as the perfect place for technology development, and a future high-tech centre for the world.

The event aims to tackle the issues impacting conventional digital storage solutions through the implementation of distributed storage. The goal is to enhance data technology to improve personal and private experiences for businesses and their end-users via blockchain technology. Created by global leader in blockchain technology CloudTech Group, DCS 2021 will entertain guests while challenging the status quo through engaging TED Talk-like debates, live studio audience shows, and fascinating blockchain activations.

Mubarak Al Shamsi, Director at the Abu Dhabi Convention and Exhibition Bureau, said: “Hosting the first Distributed Cloud Storage event in the UAE and welcoming over 20,000 delegates across three days will position Abu Dhabi firmly at the forefront for innovation in the blockchain and data storage space, and will also cement the return of large-scale events to Abu Dhabi’s calendar. With visitors from all over the world, DCS 2021 will boost tourism and enhance economic development. It will further increase MICE travel out of key markets in Asia and Europe, ultimately contributing to Abu Dhabi’s goal of establishing itself as a leading global MICE destination.”
