Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, is once again hosting the French Tech Pavilion at GITEX.
This year, tourism and ticketing platform Amadeus is the official partner of the French pavilion. During the show, Amadeus will reward the most innovative French exhibitor.
Business France is showcasing a number of French tech startups and connect them with other GCC techies present at the show.
French tech companies exhibiting at GITEX will present their latest designs and inventions focused on the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, LIFI, and FinTech. There will also be a section dedicated to blockchain and open source technologies, such as Linagora and its Open Source Personal Assistant; Two-i and its emotion analysis and behaviour prediction tools; Dejamobile and its contactless payment management software; Sowhen and its digital production and creation studio; and Foxynerds Studio for the analysis of emotions.
“GITEX is one of the key events that we encourage French Tech companies to take a part in annually as it is a great way to strengthen their presence in the region. Several instrumental meetings have been organised on this occasion with potential partners from the UAE, KSA and Egypt. We welcome visitors to the pavilion and offer them the chance to interact with our exhibitors,” said Christelle Peyran, regional head, Tech Division at Business France Middle East.
According to the UN, France is number one in Europe and the fourth globally in cultivating technology. It also ranks third globally as a leader in open data. French technology is also highly reputed and visible in the UAE, with the French Tech Hub in Dubai celebrating its second anniversary this year.
