Minister of State for Grand Bahama Kwasi Thompson launched the 2nd annual Grand Bahama Tech Summit last week, noting that the focus of the event will be on showcasing education programmes and future developments.

The Minister’s remarks came during an official launch during a press conference at Pelican Bay resort on October 10, 2018.

The Tech Summit is slated to take place in Freeport, Grand Bahama, November 14-16, 2018 at the Grand Lucayan resort.


During the press conference, Minister Thompson noted that one of the most exciting aspects will be the unique opportunity for registered participants to take part in certificate courses offered by high-level international technology companies.

Availability for these courses will be limited based on prerequisite training, as well as class size capacity.

“We will be hosting executives from tech giant CISCO Systems, which is another global technology company with over 70,000 employees,” said Minister Thompson. “We will have the benefit of CISCO Networks Academy Training Modules which will provide training in the area of networks and programming.”

“In addition, we will also have a team from CompTIA which is the Computing Technology Industry Association, a non-profit trade association, issuing professional certifications for the information technology industry. It is considered one of the IT industry’s top trade associations. It will be providing training modules in corporate digital transformation and cyber security.

“We are further pleased to partner with local title sponsors ALIV and GIBC, Our special innovation partner sponsor Grand Bahama Power Co, and our gold sponsor the Grand Bahama Port Authority.”

Exhibitors expected to be at this year’s convention include FowlCo Logistics, Buckeye Bahamas Hub, Hutchinson Ports, Freeport Container Port, Grand Bahama Airport Company, Freeport Harbour Company, Seagrape Inc. (Nassau) and Unified Technologies (USA).

In addition to the impressive line-up of international speakers expected at this year’s summit, Minister Thompson said, there will also be a lineup of well-versed, professional Bahamians in the field of technology from around the globe who will also be presenters.
