With targets and goals such as encouraging ICT spending in the MENA and raising awareness on the importance of various aspects and usage of ICT, it is difficult to fully assess the success and failure of GITEX.  However, many other facts and figures might help us in this task.

To start with the success, GITEX has skillfully managed to attract not only hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, but also the biggest names in the industry. In fact, Microsoft announced the launch of its Windows 7 at GITEX 2009. Also, in a city with the biggest tower and two highest-rated hotels, Panasonic displayed their “World largest TV screen” at GITEX 2008. In addition the high sales witnessed by the exhibitors (AED 175 million in 2010) encourage them to continue marketing and selling their business and services at GITEX.

On the other hands, one of the few failures we could think about is the low footfall witnessed by GITEX in 2008 amid the financial crisis.
