GITEX, an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) business, is the gateway to the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia Region.
Established in 1981, the group is focused on providing exhibitors with high Return On Investment (ROI) through direct business opportunities with decision makers.
Furthermore, GITEX has maintained its position as the industry’s trend setting authority.
Moreover, the group continually identifies the hottest global Information Technology (IT) trends and incubates these into the event either as new sectors or conference programmes.
“The sectorisation of GITEX has enabled new companies to participate in identified trends as well as giving visitors the opportunity to engage, learn and implement the advances in the industry,” the company notes.
Commenting on their Dubai 20-24 October, 2013, organizers add, “For GITEX Technology Weel 2013 we have worked hard to identify and approach some of the leading bloggers from across the region as an expansion of our Tech Talks programme. It’s been a long process, but we’re delighted to say we have confirmed our first wave of invited bloggers for 2013.
Furthermore, its exhibitions in the Middle East have included 138,000 participants at one event and 150,019 in particular at Gitex 2009 where Microsoft released Windows 7.
