Once again, the annual consumer computer and electronics show, Gitex, is back in action. It has been a year unlike any other, entirely dominated by the scourge of the coronavirus. However, Gitex managed to overcome the hurdles posed by the pandemic and stage a much-loved comeback. After a year of missed opportunities, Gitex is back for its 40th anniversary with 5 extraordinary days.
Companies from around the world will showcase their exotic offers at the exhibition at the iconic World Trade Centre, which started today. It will end on Thursday.
There are over a thousand innovative tech firms and startups from more than 60 countries involved.
Apart from this, there are more than 200 most active investors taking part in the event.
An Etisalat kiosk at GITEX displays for the first time a drone connected to the 5th G network and the first self-driving car and bike in the UAE.
Shoppers walk around an environmental friendly area at Gitex.
This is an era of smart technology. Here smart services call the shots. It is the time for trendy developments such as blockchain tech and artificial intelligence, whose heft will be very much on display.
For the first time, however, Israel will be making a mark at the event. The Israel Innovation Discovery Day @ GITEX Future Stars is your rare opportunity to get introduced to Israel’s startup ecosystem, forge new business collaborations and network with the first and largest business, tech and investor delegation flying in from Israel to Dubai.
The exhibition will truly dazzle the world and disrupt the trade and transport sectors in fulfilment of the national ambitious UAE Centennial 2071 Project, the National Artificial Intelligence Strategy 2031, and Dubai Paperless Strategy 2021.
