What is GITEX?

GITEX debuted its remarkable entry in 1981 as one of the longest-running technology exhibitions globally. At the time, it was called the Gulf Computer Exhibition. At its inception, GITEX was a small event with a relatively sparse crowd of 3000 visitors. They explored the latest software and hardware from 46 global exhibitors - including the Arabic-language software, British Telecom’s Prestel virtual newspaper and the ICL Perq - the first personal workspace with a Graphical User Interface.

Since its opening success 41 years ago, GITEX grew exponentially over the ensuing years, hitting over 125,000 visitors and becoming the world’s third-largest ICT event in 2010. As decades passed, GITEX not only withstood the test of time but also powered the launch of many ground-breaking innovations. It has been the ultimate pipeline for global tech giants and budding startups to network with potential customers, partners, and investors. What started at 3000 visitors and 46 exhibitors has transformed into 3500+ exhibitors and over 180,000+ visitors today. Such is the power of GITEX, a global tech phenomenon and UAE’s pride.
