Technology companies from around the world have leveraged the 34th edition of GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK to secure multi-million dirham deals with a host of regional private and public sector entities.

With more than 100,000 ICT professionals from 150 countries visiting GITEX this year, global brands have used the opportunity to ink deals and strategic agreements with both regional governments and private technology companies.

International technology leaders have also taken advantage of the technology exhibition to highlight innovations expected to drive regional Smart Government and Smart City initiatives.

Companies signing major deals at GITEX include Ericsson, Huawei, Cisco, Microsoft, Etisalat and Du.

“As the leading ICT event in one of the world’s most lucrative ICT markets, GITEX Technology Week offers a unique platform for local, regional and international entities from across the public and private sector to come together under one roof and strike long-term partnerships that foster innovation, drive revenues and heighten consumer engagement,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Exhibitions & Events Management, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). “GITEX has always been synonymous with business, deals and transactions. That reputation has been further enhanced at the sold-out 2014 show.”
