The exhibition was opened by Shaikh Sultan bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, member Abu Dhabi Executive Council and chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority. Over 100 companies have put up their pavilions including service providers Etisalat, Thuraya, du and the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) drawing large number of visitors. Major developments and ongoing construction are creating high levels of demand for new networking technology in Abu Dhabi, with experts expecting the Emirate to become one of the most significant markets in the Middle East in 2007.

Projects which deploy advanced communications infrastructure are driving investment levels to record highs, and many global networking specialists are looking to introduce high-level technology to respond to this demand. Online Distribution, one of the leading distributors of data networking products and services, is one of the companies benefiting from this trend. The company is anticipating strong demand from its expanded presence at MECOM. "Abu Dhabi is an important market and we are involved in talks with major government end users as well as some of the large solution providers," said Keith Rich, managing director, Online Distribution.
