Synergising the mind and technology economy


The most important week in the regional technology calendar for the last 38 years, GITEX is a must-attend event located in Dubai. This is where the world’s technology leaders, enterprises and startups come together to show you the future of every business and every industry, as it happens.

From top exhibitors and speakers to new product launches and live experiences, the most renowned names in technology have come alive here. This year, GITEX hosts 24 technology shows in one, converging sectors and industries that will impact our lives, 365 days a year.

Spotlight on new features:

Synergising the mind and technology economy

Synergising the mind and technology economy

Technology has shifted the boundaries of what we once envisioned as impossible, and its usage has been linked to revolutionary social, economic and business transformation. The impact is powerful, real and sustainable.

Technology cannot - and should not - replace humans and traits such as communication, empathy, comprehension. The theory of mind dictates that engagement or the ability to mentalize is a task that is impossible for a non-human entity to truly replicate.

Through GITEX 2019, we invite stakeholders in the technology economy to work towards a mindful balance of the unbridled power of technology and the human mind, by acknowledging how they complement one another and are not mutually exclusive. 



The 5G revolution is rapidly moving forward, enabling new applications, services, and solutions that will facilitate cross-industry transformation and ultimately, shape the way in which we live our lives.

From high-quality entertainment streaming on our mobile devices, to e-vehicles, smart cities, and mobile patient monitoring, 5G technology will empower leaders to shift new frontiers as they introduce new services, solutions and applications.

GITEX 2019 will highlight the biggest shifts in communications and IT systems as carriers roll out the upgrades of their mobile networks to 5G. Not only will 5G deliver faster and enhanced mobile broadband, it will enable hyper-connectivity between machines, people and things, creating an eco-system for new innovations. The future begins at GITEX this October!

Consumer Tech

Consumer Tech

Technology is connecting all aspects of our lives, and this has a transversal impact on how consumers both live and work. In terms of a connected lifestyle, the true value of smart home and lifestyle technology is achieved in convergence across residential, enterprise, mobile, hospitality, commercial, and public spaces. As the rapid adoption of connected consumer devices creates new experiences, integrators can shift to expand ecosystems.

GITEX’s Sync Smart will showcase real interoperable and integrated products needed to live a truly smart life. From smart kitchen appliances and surveillance cameras, to home entertainment and mobile electronics and beauty products, Sync Smart debuts the products that enable a connected lifestyle.
