Dubai Internet City (DIC), a member of TECOM Investments and one of the largest information and communication technology (ICT) free zones in the world, announced its strategic sponsorship of GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2008, one of the top IT industry events in the region.

In its participation for the eighth consecutive year, along with Google and Intel and two sister entities including SmartCity and eHosting DataFort, Dubai Internet City will showcase its stellar year-on-year growth at its stand in concourse 2, between Exhibition Hall 8 and the Sheikh Maktoum Hall at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

There will also be opportunities for networking and building sound partnerships with industry professionals.

This year, the pavilion will host key business partners including Google and Intel and sister entities Smart City and eHosting DataFort.

Helal Saeed Almarri, Director General of the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) organiser of GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK said: “We are proud to have Dubai Internet City once again to the show. DIC is the major driving force behind the region’s ICT industry growth and has helped position the country as leaders in global e-readiness leadership in the MENA region.”

For the first time in the region, Intel will display a prototype of a processor with 80 cores that can perform a trillion floating-point operations per second to demonstrate the tremendous potential for significant performance and energy efficiency for its chip in the near future.

A sister entity under the DIC pavilion is SmartCity, a joint venture promoted by TECOM Investments and Sama Dubai. Based on the successful models of DIC, Dubai Media City and Knowledge Village. SmartCity’s industry townships provide an infrastructure, environment and support system to promote the growth of industry companies.
