After 37 years, GITEX is still where companies break into the world’s wealthiest and fastest growing tech region. This year, visitors will enjoy a host of new features such as the GITEX team visits to the world’s leading innovators and exposure to the world’s foremost R&D departments for the latest tech in Healthcare, Education, and Construction that will shape and change the way we live.
At GITEX, visitors can literally step into tomorrow with The Future Tech Hall, the home of cutting-edge tech wizardry for daily life, on display in Dubai for the first time (and in some cases for the first time globally). Also at GITEX, The Social Fringe turns Dubai into an open-source, city-wide bonanza of networking and meet-ups. Thousands of exhibitors will deliver the most amazing social events Dubai has to offer, as private enterprises go head-to-head to arrange the most exciting and memorable events.
In addition, GITEX also presents The Learning Fringe, a collective of pioneering futurists from the most advanced companies at the show to deliver dozens of free lectures in what is arguably the most extensive timetable of technical IT sessions available in the Middle East. It wouldn't be GITEX without the widely acclaimed vertical days: 10 star-studded conference days with stellar speakers and back-to-back industry insights high flyers wouldn’t dare to miss.
This year also brings to the agenda Women in Tech day, The CDO Breakfast Briefing, The Innovation Cup Awards and #journeytogitex - where a place at the GITEX Global Startup Movement can be won. As the largest and most influential technology event for the Middle East, this is where business is made and deals are secured. Every serious global technology company will be at GITEX Technology Week.
