This year's event, the 38th edition of the show, is expected to draw more than 4,000 exhibitors from over 100 countries.

GITEX is being held under the banner of ‘Experience Future Urbanism', which will present new developments in technology fields including AI, 5G, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, and more.

The show is expected to draw 100,000+ tech experts over five days, to visit the 21 halls, accounting for 1.4million square feet with sectors including Global Smart Cities, IoT (the Internet of Things), Smart Workplaces, Cloud, Cyber Security and Future Tech.

Global technology leaders including Amazon, Google, Microsoft, HPE, SAP, Alibaba Cloud and Huawei are participating in the event.

GITEX also features 290 hours of expert keynote and panel discussion across its different conference streams and events, and will host over 700 startups at GITEX Future Stars. The inaugural GITEX Global Investors Summit (G2i) is expected to attract over 400 investors from across 30 countries, while nearly 250 government entities will be participating in the show's Global Smart Cities platform.

Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Events Management, Dubai World Trade Centre, organisers of GITEX, says: "Technologies, no matter how revolutionary they may be, offer no value to us unless they can create experiences to augment the well-being of the individuals and larger society. We are proud that GITEX enterprises, startups and government entities come together, striving to transform intricate tech talk into meaningful manifestations of happiness that are relatable, accessible and in reach of a truly inquisitive and intelligent audience."
