Dubai-based Gitex Global will debut the African version of its event in 2023. After 40 years since its birth, the organisation has decided to broaden its horizons. Marrakech has been chosen to host this new event from 31 May to 2 June 2023.
GITEX GLOBAL, the world’s mega tech showcase, is embarking on a new journey into Africa, leveraging a 42-year legacy of connecting tech titans, governments, start-ups, investors and global innovation hubs, to accelerate, collaborate, and explore new ventures in the world’s rising tech continent.
The inaugural GITEX AFRICA will take place from 31 May-2 June 2023 in Marrakech, Morocco, rallying the tech world’s attention to the vast potential of the globe’s youngest continent, and shaping the vision for a more connected, sustainable, inclusive, and tech-driven digital economy.
The landmark event is the first overseas venture for GITEX GLOBAL, the influential tech brand trusted by international tech executives. It was announced today at a press launch during GITEX GLOBAL 2022, which this year outran capacity at the Dubai World Trade Centre venue to cross two million sq. ft. with more than 5,000 exhibitors from 90 countries.
