|Top technology companies sponsor MENA Report coverage of GITEX event
|MenaReport, the primary provider of Middle East business information to the world's top news agencies, has launched a dedicated website, http://gitex.menareport.com, to provide on-the-ground coverage of Gitex 2003, the Middle East's leading technology exhibition in Dubai, 19-23 October 2003. Leading firms HP, Motorola and Datamatix are sponsoring Mena Report's special coverage of Gitex, confident that this event will be of immense interest to the technology industry throughout the world.
Mena Report's ongoing coverage of the latest business developments in the region has earned the website a strong standing among decision makers, and also a unique position as a key provider of business news and analysis to the world’s top information services, including the Financial Times, Factiva - Dow Jones & Reuters, Lexis-Nexis, and Dialog, among others. Mena Report’s coverage of this year’s Gitex event will be distributed live throughout the world.
Although the Information Technology markets in Western countries have been suffering over the past years, the Middle East is still going strong, and so has become a focus for the top international technology companies. Experts believe that the Arab Gulf economies are set to grow even faster in the coming year, and corporate and consumer spending will ensure buoyant technology sales.
“Over the past year, MenaReport has experienced especially strong demand for business information on the Gulf IT market, and this shows that international interest in this market is higher then ever,” commented Hani Jabsheh, co-founder of the Al Bawaba media group, which counts MenaReport among its online properties. “MenaReport will be closely tracking the impact of the 100,000 exhibitors and buyers who are now converging on the Dubai exhibition”.
Sponsorship of this event coverage by Mena Report, which features a focus on e-business and e-commerce, is well in keeping with the ongoing commitment of HP, Motorola and Datamatix to the Middle East region. “We are very pleased with the manner in which our efforts have been accepted by the Dubai-based IT and Telecom community” added Hani Jabsheh. “Our coverage of the industry has earned us generous praise from our readers, and we have also had a stellar year in online advertising, where we have already tripled to-date what was booked last year”.
