DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 23rd June 2022 – Horizontal Digital is pleased to announce it is sponsoring the next Sitecore User Group Middle East and Africa (SUGMEA), themed “Accelerating Digital Transformation with Composable DXPs”.
This event features an exciting lineup of speakers from Sitecore, Tanasuk, Horizontal, and Microsoft who will be speaking on Sitecore’s most recent acquisitions, including Sitecore Send and the rise of Composable DXPs. Talks will focus on how Sitecore is building its composable stack and what some of the new acquisitions mean for customers and partners. After the $1.2bn investment from Sitecore into the stack, it will be great to hear from partners who are working with the new products such as Sitecore Send and listen to some customer use cases.
The event in Jordan will also feature a special Sitecore Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) MEA awards ceremony for the first time, hosted by Tamas Varga, Sitecore’s Director of Community Programs. Sitecore MVPs are awarded for their exemplary focus on Sitecore and their commitment to helping the community thrive through support, mentoring, and active participation in the growth of Sitecore.
Dharmesh Harji, Regional Marketing Director MEIA at Horizontal Digital, commented “We’re excited to attend the first Sitecore MVP award ceremony for SUGMEA and celebrate those MVPs who have demonstrated great effort and dedication to the Sitecore community. What makes this even more exciting is that it’s taking place in Jordan. We’re really looking forward to meeting the wider Middle East Sitecore network as well as familiar faces.”
Moatez Habayeb, Sitecore’s MEA Marketing Director, commented “We feel excited to witness the growth of the Sitecore User Group and the enthusiasm around digital experience technologies in the MEA region.
