Showcasing ICT for all
The exhibition at ICT for all Tunis 2005 builds upon the success of the ICT4D Platform held December 2003 in Geneva, whereby 265 participants from 80 countries transformed 16000 m2 into a thriving Communication village to showcase how ICT tools are used across the world.
In contrast to the WSIS, the exhibition is open to all visitors. The exhibition aims to further raise awareness of how ICT tools can be used successfully in a development context in both developing and developed countries.
ICT for all Tunis 2005 showcases success stories from partnerships made in Geneva and provides a platform for participants to make new partnerships for the future of ICT for Development.
The central place
The exhibition is a thriving market place buzzing with life, with streets stemming from the central place. The streets are named after the themes of the Platform. Information concerning the themes will be available soon.
Major stakeholders from governments, the private sector, international organisations and civil society showcase technologies, products, projects, services, approaches, best practices and innovations in the field of ICT for Development.
Private Sector involvement
"The ICT4D Platform was a great idea and a good vehicle for business and civil society to present their priorities, initiatives and positions...."
