The Middle East IT industry turned out in force last night, for the sixth annual ACN Arab Technology Awards.

CIOs and senior executives from leading enterprise vendors gathered at the gala dinner, held at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa.

Twenty awards were presented, to honour the region's top vertical projects, vendors, integrators and service providers. A record number of entries were received for this year's awards.

Ben Furfie, editor of ACN said: "The real value of the ACN Arab Technology Awards is that they are genuinely seen by the industry as a bellwether of success in the previous year. The calibre of guests is a reflection of the esteem with which these awards are regarded, and those that won should be proud of their achievements.

"We would like to thank all the winners, nominees, our judging panel, key figures from the industry and our sponsors. The event also provides an invaluable opportunity for the region's IT industry to come together and celebrate the hard work and innovation shown in the past year," he added.
