All you need to know about Gitex Saudi Arabia 2009

Riyadh Exhibitions Company has finally updated their website just in time for Gitex Saudi Arabia 2009 in Riyadh. Probably not the best design but it is an improvement over the old one.

As usual it’s mainly a shopping exhibition: Gitex Saudi Arabia 2009 and Gitex Saudi Arabia Computer Shopper 2009. I am not looking forward to “WAP Technology” and “ASP Business Host”.

When is the event? Gitex Saudi Arabia will be from the 19th to 23rd of April 2009.

How to get to the new exhibition building? Just follow the direction on this link (even though it claims it is in Lebanon for some reason).

Who are the participants? As usual STC and Mobily (Saudi Arabia’s biggest telecommunication companies) are participating. Which I think is a bad idea and a waste of space. I was given a list of participating companies which you can find in this PDF file.

I have been extremely busy with some family matters so I don’t think I might be even able to attend. You will be able to find coverage at Tech WD (Arabic tech website).
