The Digital Dubai pavilion returns to GITEX Global 2021, with 31 government and private entities coming together in one display and under a new name – Digital Dubai.
The 41st edition of GITEX is organised by the Dubai World Trade Centre on 17-21 October and will see Digital Dubai launch its new corporate identity and vision.
The display showcases Digital Dubai’s bold ideas, strategies, projects, and initiatives for the future, taking visitors through its roadmap towards a digitised life that ensures the community’s happiness and wellbeing, in line with the UAE leadership’s aspirations. The roadmap embraces innovation and creative thinking as a work ethic to navigate this era of rapid developments.
The Digital Dubai Pavilion highlights the collaborative digital approach that brings Digital Dubai together with partners from both the government and private sectors to work as one team, address pressing challenges, and reap the benefits of this new era of development.
“As with every edition of GITEX, we return this year with the same spirit: multiple partners with one common goal,” said Hamad Al Mansoori, Director-General of Digital Dubai.
“Nevertheless, this edition of GITEX is special; it coincides with the UAE’s 50th anniversary, which draws the curtain on half a century of astonishing accomplishments that have made waves around the world. We now look forward to another 50 years of unwavering dedication, where we march, guided by our wise leadership, towards more success.
