Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) will showcase a selection of under-construction smart city projects at GITEX Technology Week 2016.

Silicon Oasis’s regulatory body will use the event as a platform to promote developments including Silicon Park, Fakeeh Academic Medical Centre, and Axiom Telecom HQ.

DSOA will host TechTalk dialogs during the five-day event, inviting industry professionals to discuss subjects linked to innovation and technology entrepreneurship at its stand in Zabeel Hall, according to UAE state news agency, WAM.

Adnan Al Bahar, vice president of marketing and corporate communications at DSOA, said: “GITEX offers an ideal annual platform for local and global technology companies to come together, exchange expertise and best practices, discuss increasing trends in the field, and explore potential business opportunities.

“To underline our focus [on] promoting the hi-tech park as a proof of concepts for smart city initiatives, we will [use] our participation this year to highlight [DSO] projects that support Dubai Smart Initiative, such as the Innovation Ignition Lab, and Smart Street Solution, among many others,” he added.

This year marks DSOA’s 14th consecutive appearance at GITEX Technology Week, which will run until Thursday, 20 October, 2016 at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
