Accenture to spearhead Digital Agenda at the GITEX Technology Week 2017

Accenture will be the ‘Exclusive Digital Transformation Partner’ of GITEX Technology Week 2017 for the third year in a row. On the first day of the event, Accenture Digital Group Chief Executive Mike Sutcliff will be headlining the Grand Keynote session with an Artificial Intelligence case study, as part of the findings from Accenture’s ‘Middle East Technology Vision Report 2017’ that provides an in-depth look into the region’s technology trends.

Accenture will be giving away a rare opportunity to the winners of the “Accenture Innovation Awards”. Winners will get an all-expenses paid trip to Silicon Valley where Accenture executives will arrange for them to meet with key investors. The initiative is in partnership with Expo 2020 Dubai, Fintech Hive at DIFC and Etisalat Digital. Moreover, Accenture will also be awarding the winners of GITEX’s highly anticipated Student Lab competition with a tailored internship program at the company.

Throughout GITEX Technology Week, Accenture will showcase how digital technologies will impact businesses through several industry sessions, including Digital Marketing and Healthcare sessions on October 9th, a Finance session on October 10th, and a Public-Sector session on October 11th.

Visitors to GITEX Technology Week can also experience Accenture’s future vision through multiple live demos showcasing the latest digital technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) held at the Etisalat stand.
