Summary

The Digital Nepal Conclave 2024 is an initiative in Nepal’s journey towards becoming a digitally empowered nation. It is a one-day conclave promoting a future where digital innovation and technology serve as catalysts for progress and development.

At the core of this conclave is a dedication to inclusive dialogue and collaboration, uniting diverse stakeholders from Nepal and abroad, including government officials, industry leaders, ICT professionals, entrepreneurs, academics, and thought leaders.

Together, we aim to harness the collective wisdom and expertise of these individuals to chart a strategic roadmap for digitizing Nepal.

During the event, we’ll explore key aspects of Nepal’s digital capability, including digital infrastructure, innovation, literacy, citizenry capability, security, and emerging technologies. Through discussions and idea exchange, we aim to generate actionable recommendations for tangible progress in our digital transformation.

The Digital Nepal Conclave 2024 is the culmination of pre-events like ‘Digital Pradesh Samvad 5.0’ and ‘Digital Pradesh Paridrishya 3.0’ held across all seven provinces. These events gathered feedback and insights from diverse communities, laying the groundwork for the conclave.

As we gather for the Digital Nepal Conclave 2024, we’re reminded of the immense potential ahead. Let’s unite, exchange knowledge, forge partnerships, and drive the digital transformation agenda for a brighter, more inclusive future for Nepal.

The Biggest Digital Conference in Nepal

This year’s Conclave holds exceptional significance as it converges on the theme of ‘Harmonizing Digitalization and Development.’

By fostering collaborative partnerships, promoting inclusive digitalization, and enhancing digital infrastructure, the event aims to drive Nepal towards a future of sustainable growth and prosperity.

Through dynamic panel sessions, interactive workshops, and insightful presentations, the Conclave will explore innovative strategies to bridge the digital divide, promote social equity, and drive economic empowerment for all segments of communities.
