The GITEX exhibition is one of the largest trade events on Dubai’s calendar. The event is a gateway for global brands to access the Middle East, the fastest emerging and investment ready ICT market. It is also one of the longest running annual conferences in Dubai - 2011 will be its 31st year.
Last year the exhibition comprised over 3,500 domestic and international IT vendors offering their latest products to 136,000 ICT professionals. It also acts as a hub and access point to wider markets from North Africa and South Asia, all of which are a huge draw to global brands. In 2010, representatives from over 135 countries attended the conference, 70 per cent of these were of managerial level and nearly half of them had a purchasing power of $250,000 – displaying that GITEX is the most lucrative week of the year for the region’s technology industry. In 2010 84% of exhibitors either met or exceeded their ROI expectations. Representatives from over 1,000 different media outlets from all over the globe also attend this annual event.
Each year GITEX technology week holds a themed Global Leaders Summit. In 2011, this will focus on ‘innovation in leadership’ thanks to a new era of transformation leadership, most recently seen in runaway successes like Facebook and Groupon. World class presenters will share strategies, ideas and technical insider information on how to become an innovative leader.
Within the GITEX Dubai exhibition there are several different dedicated sectors; business solutions, cloud confex, GITEX card technology, consumer technology, GULFCOMMS, global conferences, government@GITEX and mobiles, apps and content world. There are also multiple opportunities for event attendees to interact with high profile IT leaders in seminars, lectures and workshops. These sectors have been devised to make the huge event more manageable for vendors and their clients.
Visitors to GITEX will be able to identify and learn about new products and solutions, understand the effects of consumer trends, realise how cutting edge technology can assist their businesses, network and build new contacts and peers and of course, observe the competition.VISIT WEBSITE
