Dubai, UAE, 19 October 2019—BICSI, the association advancing the information and communications
technology (ICT) and extra low-voltage (ELV) communities, successfully concluded its Technical
Roadshow across key cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Tech Roadshow that was held in Jeddah, Riyadh and Al Khobar from October 13-17 attracted
ICT/ELV professionals including architects, consultants and engineers to network and share experiences
Overall spending on information and communication technology (ICT) in Saudi Arabia is expected to
reach US$34.5 billion this year. That’s according to the latest insights, trends, and predictions presented
by International Data Corporation (IDC).
Paul Weintraub, RCDD, ESS, RTPM, TECH, CAE, BICSI Vice President of Global Development and Support,
said: “We are focusing our efforts on the EMEA District to meet the ever-increasing needs of the ICT/ELV
community and the Saudi Tech Roadshow was an initiative in this direction. The roadshow provided a platform for the ICT/ELV professionals based in Saudi Arabia to exchange ideas and learn from the
experts in their field.”
The roadshow featured presentations on a range of topics including Digital Ceiling Lighting and Cabling
Design Challenges, Construction Products Regulation, Network Cabling Infrastructure, and Edge Data
Kasper Huisman, Strategic Marketing Director, Enterprise Connectivity EMEA, Belden, addressing the
session on “Construction Products Regulation – Details, Comparison and Experiences,” said: “The BICSI
EMEA Saudi Tech Roadshow 2019 reaches out to a large audience of ICT professionals in Saudi Arabia,
and as a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, Belden took an
active part in these series of events. A key topic was Construction Products Regulation (CPR), the fire
regulations for cabling. Originally devised for the European Union, parties outside the EU, such as Saudi
Arabia and the GCC region are now also interested in details and background of CPR.”
