Dubai Internet City (DIC) plans to attract interest from even more IT companies by showcasing its state of the art infrastructure through a live 3D interview link-up with giant IT trade fair CeBIT.

DIC is also running a stand at CeBIT to promote the advantages it offers to foreign companies such as 100% tax-free ownership, 100% repatriation of capital and profits, no currency restrictions, easy registration and licensing, stringent cyber regulations and protection of intellectual property. DIC will also highlight the programmes it has developed that can be used by the IT community to explore and expand channel development opportunities.

On Thursday March 18, at 10am, there will be a live interview from the CeBIT exhibition in Germany to Dubai Internet City (DIC). Images will be beamed live from the show, in 3D, to Dubai, where they will be watched by Dubai’s royal family and by representatives from companies already located within DIC. The link will demonstrate the high speed, high capacity Internet capabilities of DIC, unrivalled in Europe. Dr. Omar Bin Sulaiman, CEO, and, security permitting, His Highness Sheik Maktoum, Dubai’s crown prince, will participate in the event. Technology at CeBIT cannot facilitate a simultaneous showing, so a 2D image will be sent back, showing what can be seen in Dubai.

CeBIT remains a magnet for IT companies from around the world and an excellent opportunity to highlight the advantages of locating at DIC to a worldwide audience. Lured by a buoyant market and excellent growth prospects, IT vendors are taking an increasing interest in developing a local presence and channels-to-market in the Middle East.
