The Crown Prince of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum today officially inaugurated the 39th GITEX Technology Week. Taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from October 6 to 10, the event features 4,500 companies representing 100 countries.
MartechVibe is the media partner of this global tech event and the only marketing technology media platform to be present at GITEX.
Sheikh Hamdan expressed his appreciation for the steady growth of the event, which is the largest IT industry gathering in the region and one of the world’s leading technology-related events. “The exhibition sector in Dubai has developed considerably over the years from a platform for the launch of new products to a stage for innovation, opportunities and exchange of ideas and expertise. Today, GITEX has evolved into an event where technology leaders share their vision,” His Highness said.
Sheikh Hamdan welcomed exhibitors from various parts of the world. “The event’s ability to attract thousands of companies from the region and the world, ranging from global IT giants to upcoming companies, opens new opportunities for us to work with the rest of the world in finding solutions that can make people’s lives easier and happier. Our partnership with major global technology firms offers us fresh possibilities to enhance our strategic objectives and become one of the front-runners in the fourth industrial revolution,” His Highness said.
HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed was accompanied on his tour by Federal National Council Speaker Dr Amal Al Qubaisi. Following the inauguration, His Highness went on a tour of the stands at GITEX, which feature some of the most cutting-edge and innovative technologies that organisations from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia have developed.
The event, which showcases the latest technology innovations from flying cars to talking robots, is widely regarded as the biggest tech show in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
