World Summit Awards (WAS) Chairman Dr. Peter Bruck in Abu Dhabi announces Sri Lanka to be the venue of the world-renowned e-content awards WAS.
“The Winners’ events and experts’ conference will be hosted by Sri Lanka in October 2013 and I want to thank the Government of Sri Lanka and particularly ICTA the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka for hosting us in Colombo.
“WSA has a network of 164 UN member States and is clearly one of the most successful multi-stakeholder activities in the UN WSIS process,” Dr. Peter Bruck said at the WSA Mobile Content Awards event held in the Middle-East recently. The WSA Winners’ celebrations and the Gala bring WSA winners together with international leaders, innovators, creators, designers, entrepreneurs and activists involved in the international e-Content and ICT industries.
The Gala attracts high-level guests from all over the world, including Heads of States and government representatives, executives from UN agencies and private sector leaders.
These will personally hand over the award trophies to the winners of the Global e-Content contest. “I consider the WSA initiative to be highly important because it presents and supports the highest quality in e-Content production in the world and it fits with the priority focus of developing countries on the creative use of ICT’s for the development and the future of the information society”, ICTA CEO Reshan Dewapura said at the WSA Mobile Award Event in Abu Dhabi.
“The winners’ conference cum exhibition is an excellent international showcase of the diversity and creativity of Sri Lanka’s e-Content,” he added.
