With more than a month to go before the start of Gitex, show organisers, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has sold more than 35,000 square metres of floor space.

The exhibition will run through halls 1 to 8 and spill into the recently constructed Sheikh Rashid Hall, which provides an additional 7,760 square metres of gross space.

“Leading IT companies have indicated strong enthusiasm in Gitex Dubai 2003 with industry leaders like IBM, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, HP, Samsung, Toshiba, Canon, Acer, LG Electronics, Sony, and Etisalat among others securing a strong presence at the show,” comments DWTC director general, Mubarak bin Fahad.

The presence of the region’s largest vendors will guarantee a constant stream of product launches, conferences, seminars and on-stand promotions to attract visitors.

Gitex 2003 will incorporate several new elements this year, including the ‘E-Access’ registration system, that will enable people to register online at www.gitex.com. It is hoped the system will help to alleviate the usual congestion outside the halls when people attempt to register.

DWTC is also introducing a mobile visitor guide to help visitors navigate the exhibition. All visitors with a PDA will be able to download the application from information desks when in the show.
