Step into the future

The moment you see what we’ve done with Hall 8, we guarantee you’ll have to pick your jaw up from the floor.

We’ve teamed up with the world’s leading innovators to scour the world’s R&D departments and fly over the emerging tech that will shape and change our lives forever.

The Future Tech Hall will give you an amazing journey through the areas of your life which will soon be turned upside down by the release of unbelievable tech wizardry, on exhibit in Dubai for the first time (and in some cases for the first time globally).

Social Fringe

The Social Fringe

GITEX turns Dubai into an open-source, city-wide bonanza of networking and meet-ups. Anyone of our thousands of exhibitors can splash the cash and deliver the most amazing social events Dubai has to offer, and we’ll ensure you get an invitation to all of them.
We’re delivering at least 10 times  the options for you to party into the night; no two visitors will ever have the same experience again as we open private enterprise to compete to arrange the most exciting and memorable evening and weekend events, in one of the world’s most breathtaking cities.

But we’re not stopping there; we’re also bringing out pioneering futurists from the most super advanced companies at the show to deliver dozens of free lectures in The Learning Fringe; the most extensive timetable of technical IT sessions available in the Middle East – delivered for geeks, by geeks!

10 days in a week

Last year we launched our widely acclaimed vertical days: 7 star-studded conference days with stellar speakers, sold out audiences and back-to-back industry insights high flyers would kill to learn. We focused on 7 verticals, and now because of the enormous success, we’re expanding it to 10.

Monday 9th October: Marketing & Healthcare
Tuesday 10th October: Finance, Public Sector and NEW! Women in Tech
Wednesday 11th October: Smart Cities, Retail and Education
Thursday 12th October: New! Construction and New! Smart Manufacturing

It’s time to stand up and be recognized!

Headline categories will include:

  • Marketing
  • Healthcare
  • Fintech
  • Public Sector
  • Women in tech
  • Retail
  • Education
  • Construction
  • Smart Manufacturing
