“I’m very impressed by all the talks and I’m also glad that the event is happening in Cairo this year because it’s the center of all the events,” said Saaid El-Hakeem, the Co-founder and CEO Botme, a chatbot building platform. Over the last two years, Social Media Day was held in Gouna.

Chatbots: from Customer Service to Conversational Commerce, was the title of El-Hakeem’s talk which he presented on the summit’s future stage where he explained the importance of chatbots for startups.

“Startups start without a big cash flow, the chatbot doesn’t need a lot of money to be validated with an application or a website, so it’s the perfect choice because it doesn’t cost a lot of money as much as the other alternatives,” said El-Hakeem.

The organizers of the event partnered with Eventtus and created an app that helped the attendees keep track of all the talks provided them with the information of the exact time and location, and speakers at the talk they are interested in.
