Kicking off the day at 09:00, our delegates relished a rejuvenating morning by participating in a leisurely 5-kilometer run alongside the Summit crew and their friends. The route guided them through the picturesque Molos area, tracing the scenic seafront before leading them back.

While pre-registration commenced at the Olea, our adventurous delegates embarked on an expedition at 13:00 to the charming village of Omodos, where they explored the renowned Gerolemos Winery. They had the privilege of partaking in a guided tour of the winery and indulging in a selection of exquisite wines. Following the wine tour and tasting, their guide chauffeured them to one of Omodhos village’s most exquisitely preserved squares. Here, delegates could fully immerse themselves in the tranquil ambiance and unwind at the delightful coffee shop on the village square, savouring refreshments before returning to their hotel in Limassol.

They returned in time to prepare for the prestigious and time-honoured SiGMA Balkans & CIS Awards, sponsored by Soft2Bet. The evening marked a ceremonious celebration of the finest and brightest minds in the emerging tech industry, recognizing years of dedication, innovation, and cutting-edge solutions shaping the technology of tomorrow.

As a highlight, the awards ceremony also featured a spirited return of the SiGMA Foundation’s characteristically altruistic art auction, accompanied by an array of LED displays and complemented by some exceptionally versatile performances by artists from O Show. Notably, “Dionysus: The God of Gaming and Wine” by Edo stole the spotlight, its striking acrylic presentation as the grand finale ultimately fetching a staggering €50,000.

Eman Pulis, founder of SiGMA Group, commented, “For our first event in Cyprus, we have high expectations for a successful gathering of industry leaders, fostering meaningful connections, insightful discussions, and showcasing cutting-edge products. This event aims to set new standards and drive the emerging tech sector forward.”

The AIBC Balkans & CIS 2023 marks the summit’s first venture onto the island, and we’re thrilled to partner with Soft2Bet to deliver an unforgettable experience. From business insights to immersive entertainment, we’re bringing the best of Cyprus to you.
