GITEX Technology Week continues to go from strength to strength and is set to have an even greater international impact this year, further boosting the brand as one of the world's largest and most influential Information and Communication Technology (ICT) events.

Under the theme ‘Where Technology Means Business' GITEX Technology Week 2012 runs from October 14-18, 2012 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

GITEX connects more than 138,000 industry professionals and over 3,500 suppliers from 144 countries across five continents, making it one of the world's top three ICT exhibitions. And its reputation is set to grow further still as the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia (MEASA) region continues to use cutting-edge technology as the catalyst for increasingly rapid, era-defining developments. This year, over 80% of leading ICT brands will be present at GITEX, with C-level executives in attendance representing multi-million dollar ICT budgets.

"The Middle East, Africa and South East Asia region is evolving with breathtaking pace, and so too is GITEX Technology Week 2012. As the organisers of the region's premier ICT event, it is our job to stay ahead of the curve and provide the right platform for the latest innovations to flourish and take root," says Trixee Loh, Senior Vice President at Dubai World Trade Centre, the organiser of GITEX.

"GITEX is proud to operate as a leader for exciting change, and this year we are once again enhancing our scope, including putting the most powerful spotlight yet on SMEs and on emerging markets such as Africa, as well as refining our ability to not only showcase technology trends, but also to help lead its influential integration across crucial vertical sectors," said Loh.
