GREAT British innovation in force at Gitex Technology Week 2018

Gitex Technology Week, Dubai - The GREAT Britain & Northern Ireland Pavilions in Hall 1, 3 and Zabeel will be present once again at Gitex Technology Week and Gitex Future Stars.

A group of leading British companies with a strong track record within the tech sector will be exhibiting at this years event. UK companies will present ground-breaking innovation across several areas including AI, Big data and analytics, data centres, enterprise software, smart cities, cloud, IOT/sensors, consumer technology, LTE network infrastructure, 5G and location technology.

Mark Birchall, Managing Director of Tradefair, the company that organises the UK presence at Gitex Technology Week on behalf of techUK says; 'Gitex Technology Week is where the global tech industry meets to demonstrate the latest innovations. Over recent years, the UK has asserted itself at the forefront of the tech sector, with advancements in AI, 5G, IOT and enterprise software. We look forward to presenting the expertise of the UK companies and helping them to grow their business in the Middle East.'

Over 50 UK companies will showcase their technology this year with 25 companies participating on the GREAT Britain and Northern Ireland Pavilion and 15 are receiving support from the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP), a Department for International Trade (DIT) supported programme that enables smaller UK companies to attend events like Gitex Technology Week and Gitex Future Stars.

A London based start-up, Planckly, is participating at Gitex 2018 for the first time. Planckly Ltd has developed 'Planckly' app that will allow users to shop at any participating retailer by selecting an item from a menu or scanning an items barcode in-store.

'Planckly team is committed to making in-store shopping more efficient and we are excited to be working on ground breaking projects including use of smart watches for in-store shopping and chat bots to improve sales and reduce abandoned baskets' said Faiq Ali, Head of Development at Planckly Ltd.

Multitone Electronics plc, the specialist in the design, manufacture and implementation of integrated communications will feature the recently launched IM-Lite next generation unified messaging platform, which ensures you reach the right people first time, every time, in quick time.

Alexandra Michelis at Multitone commented, 'GITEX Technology Week showcases global technology and innovations that appeal to organisations across sectors and industries. Multitones portfolio of integrated communications systems is perfect for any organisation/business looking to take complete control of its comms. At this years show we are particularly focusing on speaking to telecoms managers who need flexibility, but also reliability and excellent value for money.'

Also exhibiting for the first time at Gitex is SANYX who have developed a call blocking technology for landlines and mobile phones. The CallCop', is the world's first completely automatic plug and play, cold-call/nuisance call filter.

Unlike other call blocking systems on the market, CallCop' does not require caller ID, nor does it require the user to pay any ongoing fee or to input a list of numbers.' As we all know, the companies that use cold call technology regularly change the number they are calling from, which would mean you have to update your 'blocking' list after you have received the nuisance call.

Returning to Gitex again this year is Austin Hughes Europe with their biggest stand yet. You can find them in'Sheikh Rashid'on Stand SR-H3'demonstrating leading edge rack mount data centre solutions.
