The Awards honoured one of the most important parts of our global technology ecosystem – that of vendors and technology service providers.

Tahawul Tech honoured the market leaders across 27 categories of the most critical aspects of modern technology.

The editorial team at Tahawul Tech realises that that the work of technology companies should finally be given the acknowledgement it deserves in the Middle East.

Without technology vendors, so many of the cutting-edge technology products and solutions that are transforming our world at a breakneck speed would not exist.
