Creative Industry Summit and Misr Italia Properties (MIP) signed an agreement that would see Cairo Business Park be the official sponsor and host of the summit’s 14th and annual festival. Since 2014, the Creative Industry Summit has been celebrating achievements in the MENA region’s creative economy, by gathering thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators across various fields.
“The partnership with Creative Industry Summit is in line with our strategy of empowering and enabling young people through providing an environment that nourishes their existing set of skills, we look forward to hosting all creatives across the region and giving them a platform for an open dialogue with local, regional and international industry leaders during a 3-day event,” Sherif Saleh, Co-CEO of Misr Italia Properties, said.
Hosting the event acts as a step toward realizing MIP’s vision of expansion as a holistic developer aiming at making a change in its customers’ lives through different developments including business complexes. Cairo Business Park is to become East Cairo’s hub for innovation and entrepreneurship for innovative thought leaders and budding entrepreneurs.
“Partnering with Creative Industry Summit 2022 and hosting the 14th edition and the annual festival reflects the vision we have for Cairo Business Park which aims at changing by-the-book patterns of doing business and introduces an integrated, fully equipped facility that offers the ultimate work-life balance. The 2022 Annual Festival discusses the creative economy through 25+ tracks but with a focus on sustainability, web3, NFTs, tech, and creativity in all spheres. It stands as the perfect pillar upon which we do not only introduce our vision to Egypt’s most influential industries but take action that ensures a better future.” Saleh added.
“Being the first and only platform discussing the creative economy in the Middle East since 2014, we are proud to present and ignite discussions with local, regional, and international gurus in more than 25 tracks aiming to elevate the industry in Egypt. And this partnership stands as proof of our joint and earnest desire to shape a better future by cultivating creativity and empowering youth. This year’s edition will also feature topics that are of paramount importance to us personally, our economy, and the planet,” Mai Salama, Founding Partner, Creative Industry Summit, stated.
Cairo Business Park is MIP’s flagship administrative venture located in New Cairo with investments reaching EGP 6 billion. Covering an area of 75,000 m2, the smart serviced hub offers a diversified product mix that includes an all-inclusive administrative building, a commercial area, a business hotel by Hilton Garden Inn, as well as the newest product, C-Suites, consisting of 16 executive offices with expansive spaces and three floors to ceiling glass windows overlooking the central park. Construction of the project has reached 95% and it is set to be in full operation by Q1 2023.
