From the back of an envelope to a billion $ business. It’s not all on the show floor in 2017. The best ideas happen when inspired minds come together.

New! GITEX Fringe

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

Country Connect

As a leader in technology implementation and smart cities, Dubai has for many years been the ideal meeting place for country delegations keen to learn from Dubai’s experiences and work with the leading tech companies exhibiting at the show. Previous editions have welcomed delegations from Estonia, Iran, Jordan Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Closed meetings rooms will be provided to the Country delegations with pre-arranged high level meetings. If you would like to bring a senior delegation of Government officials, ministerial representatives or enterprise buyers to GITEX 2017, please email Michael Champion who is coordinating the programme.
