GIBTM confirms technology and events services village

27th September 2007

Standing as testament to the growing importance of technology in meetings and events, Gulf Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition (GIBTM), will be hosting a technology village.

The Technology & Event Services Village @ GIBTM will the latest technology products as well as an array of support services and products for the meetings and incentives industry.

Graeme Barnett, GIBTM event director, said: “The fast-developing meetings and incentives industry in the region has prompted the need for GIBTM to offer this new feature area. Technology and event services are key to buyers as they are crucial elements of a successful meeting, incentive, conference and/or large event. We expect more exhibitors to book their stand in the near future enabling the feature to offer visitors a variety of solutions.”

The event's organising team is planning seminar sessions, which will include a panel of international technology experts discussing the industry’s future and how to use technology cost-effectively.

“Last year's GIBTM was an exhibition for us to expand our business in the Middle East market. It was a great exhibition and provided us with many leads. I recommend GIBTM to other technology companies interested in growing sales in this Middle East,” said Samuel J. Smith, Spotme Marketing Manager - Shockfish SA from Switzerland, which has already confirmed its attendance in the village.

GIBTM will take place from 8 to 10 April 2008 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Company Centre (ADNEC).
