DSO to take part in technology show
Dubai, October 15, 2009
Dubai Silicon Oasis Aothority (DSOA), a wholly-owned entity of the Government of Dubai innovations hub for high-tech industries, will participate in an upcoming major ICT show, seeking to further its growth.
Gitex Technology Week 2009 will be held from October 18 to 22 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“Being an integrated technology park, we are committed to facilitating and promoting technology-based industries, research and development within a fully integrated community,” said Ray Milhem, chief technology officer at DSOA.
“Gitex Technology Week is the right platform for us to promote our value proposition and what we can offer companies in terms of resource, expertise, and infrastructure.”
The Gitex Technology Week gains additional significance this year following industry estimates that despite the current economic challenges, the IT market in the Middle East has registered a higher growth rate than other major markets such as the US, Western Europe and Japan.
ICT spending in GCC states is projected to exceed $10.10 billion by 2010, according to reports.
“We believe the market offers reasonable opportunities that need to be tapped for sustained growth. Our participation in Gitex Technology Week will enable us to take effective measures to explore these growth options and expand our network through meeting with potential business partners and industry professionals,” Ray added.
During the five-day event, exhibitors will have the chance to explore more about DSOA, and its solid value proposition and free zone benefits including competitive cost of operations, state-of-the-art infrastructure, advanced IT network as well as 100 per cent ownership.
An environment that is specifically designed for the technology industry will be unveiled at event, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
