The Gitex Technology Week is all set to return on October 6. The mammoth five-day event is a one-stop shop for tech glitterati, who converge to showcase and experience the world’s most advanced technology and drive digital transformation.
Take this: According to a survey conducted by the organisers of the show, a staggering $179 million (Dh657.5 million) worth of business was secured at Gitex in 2018.
Organised by Dubai World Trade Centre, Gitex Technology Week sets the tone for the future of technology in the region and beyond. As an event, it is highly popular with digital whizzes, IT geeks, technology pioneers, futurists and business heads in equal measure.
This year, for the first time, Gitex Tech Week and Gitex Future Stars will feature a combined conference programme, bringing the best of both worlds – tech titans and startups – in one truly empowering agenda. Brace up as there will be 250 of the biggest tech minds on stage this year, besides some power packed key note sessions. It is believed that there will be 290 plus hours of debating and discussing major trends: 5G, healthcare, marketing and more.
With projected spends in the technology sector running into billions of dollars in the coming years, it is not surprising that Gitex Technology Week draws such an unmitigated interest.
