SHARJAH: The Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA) announces its participation at GITEX Technology Week 2018, which will take place from October 14 to October 18 at Dubai World Trade Centre. The SCTDA will be hosting a Sharjah Pavilion featuring 36 government entities--all highlighting the latest digital innovations utilized to help bolster the emirate’s thriving tourism industry.

During the exciting five-day show, the Authority will showcase various innovative projects at the Sharjah Pavilion, which include ‘Fantasy Doors’, ‘360 Sharjah Activities’, ‘Interactive Screen’ and ‘Safari Vehicle Permit System.’ The programs meet the objectives of the Sharjah Tourism Vision 2021 to enhance the tourism sector in the emirate by developing a wide range of services for tourists, travel and tours establishments and other stakeholders in the emirate.

SCTDA’s presence at the show is both timely and strategic, giving the authority the opportunity to showcase its initiatives in further enhancing digital services utilized by the tourism sector, which fall in line with the continuing unified efforts to shift towards a smart government and in support of the directives issued by Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Muhammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah to enhance Sharjah’s position on the global tourism map.
