Eco-aware ‘green’ technologies are set to steal the limelight at this year’s GITEX Technology Week, with major vendors including 3M, Dell, Sanyo Gulf, Panasonic, Sharp and Samsung, planning to debut a range of low-power and environmentally friendly products at the show.

Sharp is targeting 40% regional growth this year and expects more than 50% of its sales to come from environmentally-friendly products in the coming years.

“Sharp’s latest products are designed to use less energy and be more user-friendly,” claims Tomio Isogai, MD of Sharp Middle East.

“We will showcase our latest LCD TVs and professional monitors at GITEX Technology Week, which contain components and materials that are recyclable and environmentally friendly. We aim to become the world’s most advanced environmentally-friendly and health conscious company.”

Sanyo Gulf FZE will exhibit its range of ‘revolutionary’ consumer and commercial products at this year’s show. The new products have been designed in line with the company’s ‘Think GAIA’ brand vision.

“Underlining the importance of the fast growing market in the Middle East, Sanyo is committed to offering its customers the latest technology at the best value and quality,” said Takashi Hirao, chief regional officer of Sanyo Middle East, India and Africa. “We have a strong array of exciting products lined up for GITEX Technology Week.”

Martin Parsons, marketing manager for 3M Electro-Communications Business, says the company will demonstrate a low-power cabling system based on fibre optics.

“The benefits of switching to Green ICT technologies are clear; not only do they reduce the impact and costs of energy consumption, they also meet customer and employee expectations,” he says.
