  • GiTEX Dubai 2016

    Dear PSEB Member,

    GiTEX Dubai is scheduled to be held at Dubai World Trade Center between Oct 16-20, 2016. As has been the case in the previous years, TDAP is planning to have a major presence of Pakistani companies at the mega event and in this regard is soliciting applications to exhibit in Pakistan Pavilion at GiTEX Dubai 2016.

    GITEX Dubai is the third largest technology event in the world. Approximately 146,000 attendees from 144 countries visited GITEX Dubai 2015 with nearly 4200+ exhibitors and sponsors from over 130 countries. Over 80% of the top global ICT brands actively exhibit at GITEX thereby making it the important business-to-business ICT trade event for corporate, enterprise and SME businesses serving the Middle Eastern, African and South Asian markets. The importance of GITEX Dubai as a platform to market products and services cannot be overstated keeping in view the fact that the resource rich Middle Eastern IT market is growing with IT spending in the Middle East projected to reach US $212.9 billion in 2016, a 3.7 percent increase from 2015, GITEX Dubai 2016 is therefore an important event to gauge the market for your products and services. Post event report of GiTEX 2015 is available at http://www.gitex.com/media/GITEX-2015-PSR-AW1.pdf

    For established companies, there is an opportunity to exhibit at GiTEX Technology Week. Participation would cost just Rs. 335,000/- for exhibit space of 9 sqm as it is being subsidized by TDAP. For startup companies, there is an opportunity to exhibit at GiTEX Startup Movement. Participation would cost Pakistani startups Rs. 65,000 for exhibit space of 6 sqm as it is being subsidized by TDAP. 9 sqm exhibit space is in the main exhibition arena which gets the bulk of visitor traffic whereas startup stalls are not in the main exhibition hall.
