Among the companies present are Sony Ericsson, AJ Management Consultants, and Maktoob, recently acquired by Yahoo! in one of the region's most prominent e-business deals to date.
Malek Sultan Al Malek, Executive Director of Dubai Internet City, says: "The year 2009 has so far proved to be a real test of strength for business models in the technology industry that have remained resilient. The Middle East has set an example for growth momentum in the technology sector as reflected by the interest shown by global brands in regional companies.
"Through our participation at GITEX Technology Week 2009, Dubai Internet City seeks to support the development of the region's ICT industry. Our objective is to nurture entrepreneurship and innovation to help create a platform for sectors across the industry value chain, and contribute to strengthening the region's knowledge base," he adds.
Al Malek is also set to deliver a keynote presentation/address on ‘The significance of the ICT cluster in the region' on the third day as part of the daily panel discussions at the global conference.
