At GITEX Technology Week 2020, Huawei is collaborating with partners from around the world to showcase how governments and organisations in the Middle East can create new value through synergy across five tech domains. As this year’s 5G Innovation Partner, Huawei has strengthened its commitment to the region’s technology ecosystem by confirming its largest ever GITEX Technology Week presence at the 40th anniversary edition of the event.
As 5G has been rolled out at scale in the region and worldwide, Huawei believes that connectivity, cloud, AI, computing, and industry applications are now truly coming together to create unprecedented opportunities for society. Huawei is thus focusing on applying ICT technologies to more industries through scenario-specific solutions that help enterprises to enhance their business, and governments to achieve strategic goals related to domestic productivity and improving overall governance.
Huawei will be demonstrating these new technologies, along with its current and future-oriented applications that the company has developed with its global partners for customers in government, energy, transportation, finance, and more.

At GITEX this year, Huawei is highlighting how the synergy across connectivity, cloud, AI, computing, and industry applications will create unprecedented opportunities for organisations in the Middle East.
Huawei’s regional leadership team is also participating in multiple GITEX conference tracks. During these sessions, the company will share best practices in helping to build smart enterprises, campuses, and cities, leveraging its depth of industry know-how and experience in more than 170 countries worldwide.
In addition, Huawei will host a virtual summit on Igniting Innovation Through Education that is dedicated to the unique requirements of today’s education sector, and what the ICT community can do to bolster digital learning, support new academic models, and promote ICT innovation in line with countries’ national development visions.
Huawei will also host its sixth 5G Ecosystem Conference bringing together vertical industries, 5G ecosystem partners, and 5G operators. Recognising the COVID-19 outbreak challenges, 5G is essential for societal development and business continuity during the pandemic, as well as for economic recovery post the pandemic. During the conference, Huawei will share insights on the 5G network values, and explore 5G applications both for consumer and industry, to harvest more remarkable achievements in business and social values.
GITEX visitors and virtual guests will also be able to attend the Huawei Middle East Data Centre Network Online Summit 2020. It will bring together global and regional experts to address the challenges data centre networks are facing today, such as 10-fold surges in data volumes, computing power loss, and others, while helping enterprises to mine intelligence from data, accelerate digital transformation, and promote the development of the digital economy.
What are the key takeaways for visitors?
2020 has been an unprecedented year. The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted just how essential it is for societies to embrace digital transformation. It has also prompted rapid maturity in the region’s technology sector. There has been an increased adoption of technology solutions and accelerated digitalisation across various industry verticals, particularly in scenario-specific applications across fields like healthcare, education, energy, transportation and finance.
Huawei believes that through the collaborative power of connectivity, cloud, AI, computing, and industry applications, we can better navigate these industry changes and work together to create new value. Our ultimate goal is to build an open and sound industry ecosystem that will benefit all stakeholders.
