Invitation

Dear friends,

On behalf of Huawei, I would like to invite you to visit us at Za’abeel Hall 1 at GITEX GLOBAL 2022, the region’s largest and most renowned ICT exhibition taking place at the Dubai World Trade Center from October 10 – 14.

Under the theme ‘Unleash Digital’, this year at GITEX, Huawei will explore where industry digitalization is heading, what opportunities it brings, and how digital technologies like cloud, AI, and 5G can be practically applied in different industry scenarios to fully unleash their value.

Together, we'll dive into challenges that governments and enterprises face at all stages of their digital transformation journey, from digitalizing offices to production, to industrial support and core operational systems. Looking ahead of 2025, the sheer diversity and magnitude of network service requirements will create huge new market potential. We will discuss these opportunities with operators and industry partners, and explore the innovations we need to help pave the way for 5.5G.

We strongly believe that business leaders should adopt cloud native 2.0 architectures to boost innovation and digitalization. The event will be an important platform to explore how enterprises can succeed in the cloud native 2.0 era. And underlying all of this, we will share how technological advances are enabling a green, electrified, and intelligent society towards the net-zero target.

GITEX is a significant event for us where we announce our newest products and solutions, discuss best practices from our work with customers and partners around the world, and explore paths to shared success. At this year’s event, we will introduce a number of ICT products and solutions designed to meet the needs of various industry scenarios & address government national digital transformation goals.

Specifically, at this year's event you can:

• Connect with industry visionaries and business leaders

• Explore business opportunities with partners

• Exchange ideas with top technical experts

• Experience new ICT innovations for industry applications

Together, we can build a sound ecosystem for open collaboration and shared success, and we look forward to exploring this further with you.

I hope you will join us and I look forward to seeing you at the event.

Sincerely,
Steven Yi
President, Middle East & Africa, Huawei
