Gitex Cairo opened by Egyptian prime minister

The IT exhibition, now in its third year, has attracted the participation of more than 100 exhibitors representing 300 companies and 16 countries.

Gitex Cairo was inaugurated today by Egypt’s prime minister Dr. Atef Ebeid, and will run on a daily basis until April the 7th. The exhibition has attracted the participation of more than 100 exhibitors representing 300 companies. “Gitex Cairo has attracted the participation and support of many important IT organisations and we honoured to have the support of the Egyptian government,” said Wahid Attalla, general manager of the Dubai World Trade Centre. “As organisers, DWTC is committed to working with the government to help maximise the benefits it can reap from new technologies. I also know that the country’s business leaders and decision makers recognise the impact IT solutions can make on their day to day operations and we anticipate their presence, in large numbers, seeking solutions that will help maximise their success and profitability.” Intel ’s new Pentium 4 processor will feature heavily, with the official Egyptian launch of the Pentium 4, in addition to a presentation by Robert L. Eckelmann, general manager, operations, of Intel Europe, Middle East and Africa. His talk will focus on the benefits that Intel’s extended PC vision could have for Egyptian organisations.
