A MAJOR event for leaders of the information and telecommunication technologies (ICT) sector in Slovakia will be held on October 6 in Bratislava. In addition to representatives from the ICT community, the IT Summit will be addressed by officials from the Slovak government, ministries and parliament who will share their ideas about the topical themes of the summit, the IT Association of Slovakia (ITAS) said in a news release. The summit is co-organised by ITAS and the PC Revue and Infoware magazines. The programme will culminate with an IT Gala at which winners will be announced for the IT company, IT personality and IT project of the year for 2011.
