New initiatives to boost GITEX 08

GITEX Technology Week 2008 to introduce major show attractions and customer initiatives.

The Middle East's number one ICT exhibition GITEX Technology Week returns to Dubai this October, showcasing innovative initiatives that will further enhance the appeal of the event's distinct GITEX Business Solutions, GULFCOMMS and Consumer Electronics segments.

Leading business and office tech brands including Avatar Technology, CERT, Dimension Data, Microsoft Dynamics, Dell, Symantec, Trend Micro and XEROX will be present.

“GITEX Business Solutions provides the most comprehensive gathering of senior IT managers and CIOs in the Middle East. The event will draw together decision-makers from around the world to discuss the latest developments and most up-to-date products that will ensure businesses are equipped for the future,” said Helal Saeed Almarri, Director General of Dubai World Trade Centre, organiser of GITEX Technology Week.

Key initiatives debuting at this year's event include GITEX Majlis, which will provide CEOs and top-level executives with a host of benefits including access to executive lounge facilities and priority seating at the GITEX Technology Week Global conference and keynote sessions.

The technology fashion show Gadget Glam will also make a welcome return as will GITEX Shopper and Consumer Electronics Expo, which is the single largest retail platform for technology in the Middle East.

New for this year is the live interactive gaming segment, GITEX Digital Game World.

This exciting feature will bring more than 4,000 ‘cyber athletes’ together to learn, play or just watch as regional participants battle for supremacy.
