There is set to be a strong Jordanian presence at GITEX TECHNOLOY WEEK, with a number of the country’s leading ICT lights looking to get their products in front of a global audience.
A dozen of Jordan’s key innovators will be exhibiting at the show as part of a delegation organised by the Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO).
JEDCO has organised a national pavilion, which will be used by member companies that want to market their offerings to regional and international visitors.
JEDCO is a government agency mandated to promote Jordan’s industries and services, including software, hardware and call centres. It regularly supports attendance by its member companies at trade events, as a way of facilitating business. It also operates a number of Export Promotion Programmes.
“Attendance at international trade fairs and exhibitions by Jordanian companies is an integral part of the Jordanian Government Policy to market the sector,” says Yarub Qudah, CEO at JEDCO. “It provides a chance to interact with world-renowned IT companies and executives in order to showcase their IT services potential.”
Qudah is confident that the Jordanian IT companies will be able to generate valuable business leads at GITEX, particularly given growing awareness of Jordan’s software and outsourcing expertise.
JEDCO claims that the Jordanian IT market is worth in excess of US$800m and employs around 10,000 people. There are more than 250 local IT companies in Jordan.
Jordanian companies exhibiting at GITEX this year include RealSoft Advanced Applications, Fourth Dimension, Builders Software Solutions and GloTech, as well as MenaITech and Eskadenia.
