The company has been working with some of the country's leading wireless infrastructure providers, such as VTME with its SingleDigits Hotspot Solution to assist them as they roll out state of the art wireless networks in some of the city's key travel locations such as the Dubai Airport's Business lounges, the Burj Al Arab Hotel, The Grand Hyatt Dubai, The Fairmont Dubai, the Le Royal Meridien, the Dubai Marriott, the Novotel and others.

Hence, visitors to the Gitex 2003 exhibition will have access to unique services that will allow them to remain in touch with their business throughout their stay in the city.

"Mobile computing is about continued productivity and the ability to carry out your business easily when you are away from the office," said Gilbert Lacroix, President and General Manager of Intel Middle East and North Africa.

"It was therefore important for us to ensure that Gitex 2003 visitors get easy and practical access to the internet in order to follow up on work back home and stay in touch with customers and colleagues".

The response from Dubai's hospitality industry has been tremendous, as hotels strive to ensure that all means of comfort are offered to their guests. Intel will always invest in breakthrough technologies to bolster the region's IT infrastructure, and we are pleased to work with solution providers to deploy the maximum number of wireless networks ahead of Gitex 2003.
