LEAP 2024 set to spotlight women in tech

by Madaline Dunn

Technology event LEAP 2024 is returning for its third edition, set to take place at the Riyadh Exhibition and Convention Centre in the capital’s Malham district from March 4-7.

This year’s event, organised by Tahaluf alongside the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), features an inclusivity-focused program.

Part of this is the ‘Women in Tech’ program, which will feature content, investment, networking, and entrepreneurial mentorship opportunities, as well as a dedicated startup award.

Speaking about the event and its focus on inclusivity, Annabelle Mander, Senior Vice President of Tahaluf, said: “Female representation is across all of LEAP’s features and reflects the event’s mission of driving economic diversification and providing market access to international business.”

The LEAP 2024 ‘Women in Tech’ program will have a horizontal content track with a speaker line-up including former government ministers, C-suite executives, ethics advisors, and venture capitalists.

The event will also feature the Women’s Investor Forum, Entrepreneur Mentorship Scheme, and the Rocket Fuel pitch competition’s Aviatrix Award, which carries a US$150,000 prize purse for the best and most innovative startup pioneered by women founders.

LEAP organisers anticipate a record-breaking turnout of over 180,000 visitors in March, up from 172,000 at last year’s event.
