If you’re like me and you’re a geek and the thought of new technology and brand new gadgets excite and make your heart skip a beat, you’ll be pleased to know that GITEX is back this year.
Like in the previous years, the 36th edition of GITEX Technology Week will be held at the World Trade Centre in Dubai. It’s the first day of the exhibition today and it will run for 3 more days until the 20th of October.
GITEX is one of the largest tech events on the planet, the 3rd largest to be specific. Exhibiting in or just visiting this event gives you access to 146,000 professionals with real buying power and in 2016, GITEX is growing.
This year GITEX is reimagining realities with new sectors: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Wearables, Smart Living and Digital Marketing.
