Dubai's reputation as a leading global innovation hub is to be celebrated at the upcoming Tec.Ed Middle East conference.
Hosted by Microsoft and due to be presided over by the crown prince of Dubai, the second annual conference will see hundreds of the world's leading technology and business experts head to the emirate to share knowledge and close deals.
It is anticipated that both local and expat professionals working in Dubai will be able to take advantage of around 200 technical training sessions over the course of the three-day event, with the Dubai World Trade Centre also set to play host to 30 PC-based instructor-led training labs geared towards ensuring UAE businesses remain at the forefront of technological advances.
Commenting, Microsoft Arabia president Samir Norman said: "Microsoft believes that this year's conference will be an even greater success as developers and IT professionals from around the Middle East converge on Dubai to learn more about how they can solve today's real-world IT challenges and prepare for tomorrow's innovations."
The Tec.Ed conference will take place between March 8th and 10th, inclusive.
This comes as Dubai geared up to welcome thousands of leading businessmen and women to its International Boat Show.
