The Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit conference began seven years ago as an effort to create a significant all-day regional conference in Nicosia with active participation from important academic institutions in the country, research centers, and the Municipality of Nicosia. The conference takes place at the Nicosia Municipal Theater on two stages from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. As part of the conference, the Cyprus Cocktail Festival is organized in the municipal gardens on the same evening, where conference attendees mingle with city residents in an atmosphere of creativity and interaction.

Translation services from English to Greek and vice versa will be available at the conference.
