Step into the future

GITEX is always innovating, always exploring, always curating.

In 2017 we’re teaming up with the world’s leading innovators, scouring the  world’s R&D departments and bringing together the emerging tech that will shape the world and change the face of business.

The Future Tech Hall will be an amazing journey through unbelievable tech, the stuff of sci-fi, the sort of innovations that you thought would take decades to bring to market.

Social Fringe

The GITEX Fringe

GITEX Technology Week will bring together 100’s of independent events taking place at this year’s week-long festival of innovation.

If you are exhibiting at GITEX and are holding an event – be it breakfast briefing, meet-up, technical training, formal dinner, awards ceremony, or a fabulous party – and would like to attract the brightest minds in tech, then list it on the GITEX Fringe.

For more information and to list your event, email to ElMohaned ElMahgoub who is coordinating the programme.

The Learning Fringe

And it doesn’t stop there. We’re pulling together the hundreds of learning opportunities from around the show in the The Learning Fringe; the most extensive timetable of technical sessions, briefings, updates, discussions and hacks all for the price of a hall pass.
