Businesses across the world are greeting up to embark on an exhilarating journey into the heart of technological innovation as GITEX Global 2023, the 43rd edition of the world’s most iconic tech exhibition, opens its doors in the vibrant city of Dubai. This extraordinary event, a four-decade-strong pillar of the tech industry, is set to unite visionaries, investors, and tech enthusiasts from across the globe. With the theme “Imagine AI in Everything,” GITEX Global 2023 promises an immersive exploration of artificial intelligence’s far-reaching influence on modern life.
GITEX Global 2023 is poised to make history as it expands across not one but two colossal venues in Dubai – the Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai Harbour. An astounding 41 halls of exhibition space will house tech giants and trailblazing startups specialising in AI, Cybersecurity, Mobility, Sustainable Tech, and a cornucopia of other cutting-edge fields.
Tech aficionados, industry leaders, and innovators are on the edge, eagerly awaiting five days of mind-bending conferences, hands-on workshops, carefully curated networking opportunities, and the chance to forge game-changing business partnerships. But that’s not all – attendees will also witness the unveiling of the latest technological wonders, some of which are still hidden from the public eye.
What sets GITEX Global 2023 apart is its unparalleled thematic focus on artificial intelligence. Over the past year, AI has stealthily infiltrated every facet of our lives, from healthcare and finance to transportation and entertainment, transforming industries and enhancing efficiency. GITEX Global 2023 aims to showcase the potential and reality of AI applications, revealing how they are slashing operating costs and revolutionising business operations.
“Earlier this year, we witnessed an astonishing 464% surge in email-based phishing attacks during the first half of 2023 compared to the previous year, all while the UAE maintained its position as the region’s cybersecurity stronghold. At GITEX 2023, Acronis is dedicated to meeting the pressing demand for robust cyber protection solutions in the Middle East, where research predicts cybercrime damage will escalate to $100 billion by 2025.
Furthermore, Acronis will discuss the prudent utilization of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, IoT, Quantum Computing, and 5G. These technologies, including deepfake in phishing attacks, cybercrime, and cyber threats, will be examined closely. Acronis takes pride in showcasing cutting-edge innovations in cyber protection, with a substantial focus on leveraging AI to combat cyberattacks” said Ziad Nasr, General Manager, Acronis Middle East.
A Festival of Innovation
The GITEX Global 2023 experience extends far beyond the main event. It’s a sprawling ecosystem comprising ten co-located shows, each an adventure in its own right. These include GITEX Global, AI Everything, GITEX Impact, Future Urbanism, GLOBAL Devslam, Superbridge Summit Dubai, Expand North Star, Fintech Surge, Future Blockchain Summit, and Marketing Mania. What unites them all is the spirit of innovation, collaboration, and the relentless pursuit of discovery.
“This is our third consecutive year participating at GITEX, and we’re excited about what’s in store. Exhibitions like these give us a great opportunity and platform to interact with people and potential customers and highlight what Cloudera can do by showing them the product experience first-hand.
Our focus at Gitex this year is on bringing Large Language Models (LLM) to companies instead of getting their data to the LLM. Cloudera enables customers to manage and unlock value from their data across private and public cloud environments. Generative AI and LLMs are only as good as the data they’ve been trained on, and they need the right context. For these models and AI to succeed, it must be trusted. And trusting AI starts with trusting your data.” said Ahmad Shakora, Group Vice President of Emerging Markets – Middle East, Turkey and Africa – at Cloudera.
UAE’s Vision for Tech
The core of GITEX Global 2023 lies in the United Arab Emirates’ vision for AI and technology. As the UAE continues to invest in groundbreaking technology and nurture an ecosystem where tech startups can thrive, the event is a testament to the nation’s commitment to becoming a global technology epicentre.
The countdown to GITEX Global 2023 is reaching its climax, and the excitement is palpable. This is the event where imaginations will run wild, innovations will take centre stage, and the future of technology will be unveiled.
