Suprisingly, they did it with style!

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.

When you hear Dubai, you automatically imagine a fairytale city with astonishing skyscrapers in the center of wild desert, manmade islands, reminding the pattern of an Oriental carpet, noble Arabic men in white and mysterious women in black. And you’ll never forget Burj Khalifa — the tallest building in the world.

Just close your eyes and for a few seconds imagine the city of museums and ancient cathedrals, street musicians and famous wire balls on lightpoles, incompatible architectural styles and forsaken buildings, covered with fabulous graffiti pieces. The city of paradoxes and contrasts with its unique unforgettable atmosphere, having nothing to do with old school ceremonious Europe.

Here in Bucharest in October 2014 Telematics Conference SEEurope found its place, after a four-year trip through Serbia in 2011, than Slovenia and Croatia.

«The Art of Seeing Beyond». Gurtam calendar 2014

«The Art of Seeing Beyond». Gurtam calendar 2014What do we regularly look at during the whole year round? Surely, the calendar. Someone uses the calendar in his mobile phone, another prefers to carry a pocket calendar in his wallet, some people like to put loose leaf calendars on their desks, and others hang them on the kitchen wall, thoughtfully circling the meaningful dates. But, anyway, all these calendars are just practical and utilitarian, and we often see only figures and nothing else. Gurtam, vice-versa, justifying its logo «The Art of Seeing Beyond», not only tries to see beyond, but to look further, presenting the year 2014 as a unique calendar that will please the eye of its owner as a real art piece. Thinking over the calendar concept, this year we decided not to produce another element of waste paper, but to create something worthy, that will not only fasten your eyes on, but make you stop and stay for a while, escaping from the reality.
