Soon we will participate in trade shows in Hong Kong and Dubai in the U.A.E. Both of these shows attract a great deal of attendees from the Middle East. I imagine when most people think of the Middle East these days they only have images of conflict and oil. But in reality, most of the countries in the Middle East are stable and looking towards investments beyond fossil fuels.
This will be the 4th year that we have participated in the Gitex show in Dubai, and weâ€™ve found that not only are the attendees very progressive, but that they are anxious to adopt new technology and find new products to buy and sell. In fact the city of Dubai is looking beyond their oil wells and into becoming one of the primary tourist destinations in the world let alone the Middle East. With their ever expanding communities, office buildings, tourist attractions and cultural offerings, this region is attracting more and more industry and capital.
We will once again be exhibiting at the Gitex trade show October 2008 (Hall: 3 Booth: 332) and if you can find time to attend, youâ€™ll see a region hungry to develop new markets and adopt new products.
