“Join Us at GITEX 2016.” And They Did

It is all about continuity. It is all about community. It is all about future.

In 2016, to everyone’s excitement, Dubai Opera opens its doors for the world of art and perfection, giving stage to the globally renowned Les Miserables, Cats, and Westside Story, to share the joy of the beautiful universe with those who live here and come to visit. In 2016, Dubai shows an example of reserve, conservation, and protection for the people and resources, with numerous laws aimed at ensuring better use of energy, technology, and security. In 2016, after years of enormous development effort, Dubai is proudly looking into the year 2020, the well-known Expo 2020 Dubai that, I am sure, will be greater than anything that is happening around the world today. With business people finding new outlets and partnerships, start-ups turning into successful suppliers of novelty products and services, with public organizations finding new sponsorship sources and venues to multiply the good of their deeds.

In 2016, we, Gurtam team of six, arrived in Dubai for the GITEX exhibition with an optimistic outlook on the market opportunities of telematics and the Internet of Things.

It was Friday when we came back from Dubai, where the 35th International information technology exhibition in MEASA region was held on October 18th-22nd. It’s hard to imagine what kind of information technologies was demonstrated here in 1980, one year before I was born, while even in the past three years of Gurtam participation in GITEX Technology Week, the evolution of the region is glaringly obvious.

New technologies penetrate every single sphere of public life and it’s true both for super-civilized Dubai and more conventional emirates and countries. For instance Jumeira beach we were lucky to attend by night (after an eventful day at a booth and supper with one of our partners) is notable for artificial palm-trees with solar batteries installed to accumulate energy during the day and glow, share Wi-Fi and charge your phone at night.

GITEX 2014: thousand and one nights of high tech

Whatever you may say, but 21st century life is exciting. Having breakfast in gloomy autumn Minsk, the evening we spent swimming in the warmest waters of the Arabian gulf, strolling along the modern metropolis, wining and dining at a wonderful restaurant with delicious Arabic cuisine.

And you’ll never forget Burj Khalifa — the tallest building in the world.
