GITEX: the largest ICT hub in the Middle East

GITEX, the ICT hub of the Gulf that is organized from 17 to 21 October 2021 in Dubai, will coincide with the launch phase of the prestigious EXPO 2020. A plus for companies active in the ICT sector who want to ensure an international visibility!

The GITEX Technology Week positions itself as the largest technology fair in the MEASA region (Middle East, Africa and South Asia) and gathers every year the big names from the ICT sector, i.e. no less than 4,500 exhibitors out of a hundred countries and more than 100,000 visitors from 140 countries.

In 2021, for its 41st edition, it will benefit from its proximity to EXPO 2020, a major international event bringing together countries from around the world around the technologies and innovations that will shape our future. We will organize, on the sidelines of this event, a networking moment on the Belgian pavilion; your business contacts will be welcome!
