Mobility will be a central pillar of the region's largest and most comprehensive IT show scheduled to run from October 3 to 7 at the Dubai World Trade Centre Complex.

According to SENAO, the Middle East wireless Solutions market is predicted to grow over 200 per cent by mid 2005. This is indicative of the continuing upswing in the adoption of wireless connectivity solutions in the Middle East. Moreover, visitor feedback from last year showed that 30 per cent wanted wireless to be an area of focus.

Vendors including HP, Acer, BenQ, Intel, Sony, Dell, IBM and many more are preparing to impress visitors with their latest wireless PDAs, notebooks, smart phones and other mobility devices geared to take advantage of the better network security, greater bandwidth and faster wireless tools currently on offer in the Middle East.

"The affordable and high performance solutions showcased by our exhibitors will demonstrate how SMBs, large scale enterprises and even individuals can increase productivity by seamlessly connecting their workstations to their laptops and mobile phones," said a DWTC spokesperson.

Gitex 2004 will showcase how enterprises and individuals can increase their profitability by capitalising on the region's high Internet and wireless communication penetration rates. For instance, the UAE alone has 33 per cent Internet penetration, followed by Bahrain with 29 per cent; and the UAE also leads the mobile phone sector with 74 per cent market penetration, followed by Saudi Arabia with 32 per cent.

Gitex 2004 and Gitex Computer Shopper will cover the full range of wireless devices, applications, operating systems, services, content and security.
