"A comprehensive programme of professionally managed technical presentations and seminars is being put together by our exhibitions team to add value to both exhibitors and visitors participating at this year's event," said Abdulla T. Qassem, DWTC General Manager Exhibitions, Leasing and Property.

He noted that by scheduling the seminars in greater detail, it would be possible to increase awareness and attendance amongst visitors to Gitex 2003.

"We are dedicated to meeting, and exceeding, our visitor's specifications and expectations and are focused on enhancing Gitex's profile by providing delegates with continuing education on emerging technology and have initiated contact with exhibitors who would like to conduct presentations," Qassem added.

The seminars will take place on all five-days of the show and two rooms above halls five and six have been reserved all through the five days to stage presentations and seminars. Both the rooms hold a maximum of 50 delegates and are fully equipped with an LCD projector, slide projector and overhead projector and are being setup with theatre-style seating and a head table.

Gitex this year will showcase an entire range of IT related products and services with a significant focus on e-business and e-commerce solutions.
