Digital Bridge 2024: International IT Forum Canceled in Kazakhstan

In response to an order from Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to cancel major events due to severe flooding in the country, it has been decided to cancel the International IT Forum Digital Bridge 2024, which was scheduled for September 5-7 in Astana.

Digital Bridge, which was set to take place for the sixth time this year, began in 2018 and has become the largest platform in Central Asia for discussing the latest trends and prospects in the IT industry. Notably, the forum was also canceled in 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

This year's spring floods have become the largest natural disaster in Kazakhstan in the last 80 years. Consequently, to allocate financial resources for addressing the extensive destruction and providing aid to citizens, the Head of State has instructed the government to cancel planned major events.

The organizers of Digital Bridge — the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovation, and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the international technology park Astana Hub — express their gratitude to everyone interested in participating in the forum. Under favorable circumstances, the International IT Forum Digital Bridge will resume in 2025.
