DCG to engage Dubai-based IT distributors
Rughwani of Experts Computer Group was recently elected DCG president, a position he will hold until 2016.

The Dubai Computer Group (DCG) has revealed that it will host a distributor symposium between its board members and Dubai-based IT distributors.

The seminar, which will be held on 2nd April, 2014, as part of the initiatives aimed at promoting the activities of the local trade IT association, will see the two bodies discuss ways on how they can further cooperate in the local channel.

According to DCG, the event will also focus on how the IT trade organisation, which comes under the umbrella of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, can forge and strengthen its ties with the IT distribution community in Dubai.

In a statement, DCG said the roundtable discussion between DCG Board Members and representatives from Dubai IT distributors will address several issues including how the two bodies can work together for mutual benefit to enhance the scope of business in the local channel.

In January this year, the DCG ushered in new Board Members that saw Khalaf Al Otaiba of Al Otaiba Group elected as chairman, Shailendra Rughwani of Experts Computer Group as president, Maher Abu Amarah of Winning Deal Computers as vice president, Dharmendra Sawlani of Smile Computers as general secretary and Sanjay Bansal of Intex Technologies as the association's new treasurer.

At the time, DCG stated that it was preparing a series of programmes that were aimed at helping members to benefit from the association's campaigns, events and activities in the Dubai IT channel.
