The show has also introduced GITEX Cyber Valley, that will gather info-sec brands and global experts at the year’s biggest cyber security showcase.
“This landmark event will serve as a strategic catalyst to expand the future of Dubai’s digital economy, creating an unrivalled platform to gather key stakeholders from the global startup community here in the emirate.”
GITEX Global 2023 welcomes the biggest tech names delving into the latest trends, risks, challenges, and opportunities that are redefining entire industries, spearheaded by returning titans including Dell Technologies, e&, Google, Huawei, HP, IBM, Microsoft and Tonomus.
Amplifying this growth, launch shows GITEX Impact and Future Urbanism Expo promise to be the epicentre of shifts in climate technology, while advancing sustainable cities, and co-creating a net zero future ahead of the UN climate change summit, COP28.
“The intense demand for involvement in GITEX from the global tech and start-up community is an acknowledgment of the strong impetus to learn, exchange, debate and challenge the recent developments in the tech sphere,” said Trixie LohMirmand, executive vice president of Events Management at DWTC, the organiser of GITEX Global and Expand North Star.
