GITEX Virtual was launched today to complement the GITEX Dubai exhibition, which will run from the 14th to the 18th of October. The web broadcast online exhibition complete with 3D digital stands, interactive stand exhibits and a speaking personal show guide has been mounted by Virtex International, a 3D Virtual Show Company.
On June 5, Steve Martin, Managing Director of Virtex International had announced that the "virtual exhibition will run from October 7 to December 7, 2001 and will be accessible through www.gitex.com.” Today, however, it has been announced that Virtual GITEX will run until the 7th of January due to phenomenal response from exhibitors.

The site allows registered members to take a virtual walk around the GITEX halls in Dubai. You can visit exhibitors’ stands, read their product information, listen to their sales presentations and even book an appointment at the real show! Alternatively, you could just go to the 2D and access information about exhibitors and their products.

Visitors have to register at the site, and download the Cortona 3D viewer, which takes approximately five minutes, to walk through the exhibition. The viewer can be downloaded from the site.
