    Hi Mohamed,

    It's not in mafraq, its in king hussien business park AMMAN


  • Mohamed Marwen Meddah

    Hi, Thanks for the correction. I thought it was weird too.
    The site does say that it is being held at King Hussein Bin Talal Development Area though:

    And that is in Al Mafraq, as stated here:

    Anyway, I'm going to go with your correction because it simply makes more sense :)

    It is already stated in the press release above that the conference will be held at “the King Hussein Business Park in Amman, a modern and high-tech business park dedicated to the ICT and ICTES industry”

  • Mohamed Marwen Meddah

    Yes, that was fixed after the comment below ;)

  • Ahmedyac100

    Can we fix it in the events calendar? It still says King Hussein Bin Talal Development Area, Al Mafraq

    Thank you

  • Mohamed Marwen Meddah

    Yep, fixed now. Thanks for bringing my attention to that part too.
