Dear friends,

On behalf of Huawei, I would like to cordially invite you to visit our booth in Za’abeel Hall 1 at GITEX Technology Week 2021, the region’s largest and most renowned ICT exhibition taking place at the Dubai World Trade Center from October 17 - 21.

Under the theme ‘Dive into Digital’, this year at GITEX, Huawei will deep-dive into the practical application of technologies like Cloud, AI and 5G. We will showcase how these advanced technologies can enable digital transformation across all industries, making them more efficient, versatile and resilient as we move towards economic recovery and growth. Aligned with Huawei’s green strategy, we will also announce new products and solutions developed to support carbon neutral environments, as well as share success stories and best practices from our work with customers and partners and explore how we can jointly build a dynamic ecosystem for collaboration and shared success.

I also invite you to attend the ‘Huawei MENA Industrial Digital Transformation Summit 2021’, an exclusive forum held on October 19 during GITEX, designed to bring together thought leaders and industry experts to share innovations in technology and scenario-based solutions, to help customers in all industries go digital.

Huawei will also be hosting ‘Global Digital Power Summit 2021’ on October 16. The summit aims to bring together global industry leaders to discuss challenges and opportunities in sustainability development, and highlight industry trends, upgrades and continuous innovations which are aimed towards a greener future.

Our vision at Huawei remains to bring digital to every person, home, and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.

I look forward to seeing you at the event.
