Intel is wheeling out one of its big(ish) guns to woo IT customers in Lebanon, with the announcement that its co-general manager for EMEA will deliver the keynote for Termium Gitex next week.

Stacy Smith, who is also vice president of Intel’s sales and marketing group, will speak at Termium, Lebabanon’s leading IT event. “Lebanon is renowned for its highly qualified IT skill sets and the leading role that it plays on a regional scale, especially where PC assembly and software development are concerned,” he said. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to meet face to face with the country’s IT professionals in order to find out ways of enhancing Intel’s support for the market and increasing our role in enabling the growth of the Lebanese IT industry.”

Intel has recently trumpeted a number of successes in Lebanon, notably around its Centrino technology. Lebanon’s Ministry of Telecommunications has supported wireless ‘hot spots’ in downtown Beirut, the Phoenica Intercontinental Hotel and the Virgin Megastore.

“Intel has been working with Lebanese companies for many years in order to provide them with the best technologies and give them maximum support as they grow their business and develop into a mature, export oriented industry,” said Gilber Lacroix, Intel’s president for Middle East and Africa. “Today, this commitment is increasing, as proven by Stacy’s visit, and we hope we will get more chances to work in Lebanon, and make the most of the potential that we see in the enterprise market, as well as in the small to medium business and consumer segments.”
