Delegations of IT professionals comprising hardware manufacturers, IT solution providers, equipment manufacturers and hardware and software vendors from a wide range of countries including China, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Pennsylvania (USA), South Africa and Taiwan have confirmed their visit to the fourth edition of Gitex Hyderabad, according to organisers Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
The event is scheduled to take place at the Hitex International Exhibition Centre in Madhapur on January 12 and 14, 2005.

"The sales tax exemption extended by the state government has indeed spurred sales and stimulated curiosity in Gitex Hyderabad and Computer Shopper with the result that we now have strong delegations varying in size from five members to 15 members from the above countries scheduled to visit the show," said DWTC director-general Helal Saeed Khalfan Al Marri.

He said that these visits would offer local companies from India with an ideal opportunity to network with visiting professionals all under one roof.

"We are convinced that the visit of these foreign delegations who are keen to explore business opportunities in India will also provide the region with an opportunity to showcase its immense business potential while offering a solid platform for business transactions," Al Marri said.

Prominent among the companies that will be participating in the show include Acer (Taiwan), High Quality (Taiwan), Extra Print (Hong Kong), Thin Print (Germany), Cable Outsourcing (South Africa), Olympus (Japan) and Sonic Wall (USA).

Also present will be high profile delegations from the Gwangju Information and Culture Industry Promotion Agency (Korea) led by their president and chief executive officer Kim Young Joo, and the Pennsylvania Trade Centre.

The Andhra Pradesh government is marketing Hyderabad as a destination of choice for IT enabled companies. The event is organised by the DWTC in association with the Information and Communications Department, Government of Andhra Pradesh.
