The event, which runs from 9 – 13 October at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), connects more than 130,000 industry professionals from five continents with over 3,500 suppliers. Under the 2011 theme of “Redefine the Future” GITEX maintains and enhances its status of the region’s only finger-on-the-pulse ICT event that not only provides practical solutions, but drives the investment that helps to make the Middle East a competitive technology market.
Helal Saeed Almarri, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai World Trade Centre, organiser of the event said: “GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK, after more than three decades in operation, continues to attract the industry’s leading ICT exhibitors and attendees from around the world. Technology is an ever-evolving industry and the Middle East is increasingly becoming both more influential and more lucrative in the global ICT business arena.
“GITEX consistently strives to anticipate the most pressing issues and challenges of the day and provide expert insights and solutions through its world class exhibitors. GITEX is cementing even further its position as a leading influence on the global ICT industry by introducing brand new sectors, not only reflecting the current trends, but by providing opportunities for the future. The industry’s top cyber security, digital marketing, card technology and telecoms organisations and experts will showcase their latest products and offer essential new industry perspectives,” he added.
This year’s GITEX Global Leaders Summit, themed ‘Innovation in Leadership’, has some of the most inspirational and sought-after speakers within the ICT industry, including Pranav Mistry, the rising star of new technology and radical inventor of Sixth Sense Mistry, voted one of the top 15 Asian scientists to watch and one of the top 35 innovators in the world under the age of 35, will be demonstrating his unique human interface concepts and introducing prototypes for the first time in the Middle East.
