Arab Conference At Harvard
November 9th & 10th , 2019
Business Edition: Preparing the Arab World for the Fourth Industrial Revolution
The world is once again on the brink of a new revolution deemed to impact our everyday lives, the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This revolution is driven by advancements in technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), robotics, quantum computing, 3D printing and others. Some of its unique characteristics are the speed at which it will unfold, the vast number of industries it will disrupt, and the wide variety of stakeholders required for its success.

This year, the Arab Conference at Harvard Business School will explore the region’s readiness for this revolution, by considering key foundational enablers such as governance and regulatory requirements, human capital development, infrastructure readiness, and others.
Given last year's success, the Arab Conference at Harvard will again be organized as two subsequent events in the Fall and Spring: the November Business Edition event will bring together Arab affiliates for a 2-day conference focusing on business; on March 27-29, the general Arab Conference at Harvard will take place encompassing diverse topics beyond business. By hosting subsequent events, HAAA, HBS MENA Club, and student groups, hope to accommodate our attendees’ diverse preferences while enriching our discussions on the most pressing topics facing the Arab world.
