Circularo at GITEX 2023: A Report

attendants at gitex global 2023

Every year, the Circularo team heads to Dubai to attend the largest & most inclusive tech show in the digital economy – Gitex Global. The 2023 edition of Gitex was no different.

The event took place in the Dubai World Trade Center during the week of October 16 to 20, and of course, we couldn’t have missed it.

But still, this year’s Gitex was, at least for Circularo, special in more than one way. Read along to find out everything that happened. 

Announcing the Launch of GovSign

One of the main highlights of Gitex 2023 was undoubtedly the unveiling of GovSign, a collaborative digital transformation initiative we have been working on together with the federal Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority in the UAE (TDRA).

GovSign is a digital transformation solution exclusively designed for government organizations in the UAE, providing eSignatures, document management, PDF forms, reusable templates, and everything else that government officials might need to make their daily tasks easier.

We are looking forward to kick off this great initiative and see what it can do for the UAE Government.

Our Presence With Almoe Digital Solutions

We joined forces with our trusted partner in the region, Almoe Digital Solutions, who kindly provided us with a dedicated space for a stand at their large booth.

For the entire week, we spent time with the teams from Almoe and other companies Almoe partners with, presenting Circularo to everyone interested.

On Friday after Gitex had wrapped up, both teams bonded over seafood, further consolidating our good business relations in Qatar, UAE, and beyond.

Circularo Awards of Excellence

We love to hear the success stories of our clients and partners. It never ceases to amaze us what some companies can do and achieve with our product, and we believe that great results that can serve as inspiration to others should be recognized.

  • Innovation Award for our partner ePillars for the best Circularo integration of 2023

Teambuilding in Dubai

A few members of the Circularo team attend Gitex every year, but this was our biggest year so far in terms of presence. 10 team members from Sales, Delivery, Marketing, and Finance departments all got together in Dubai to represent Circularo at the event.

After work, the team used their free time in Dubai to explore the city’s many attractions and landmarks, as well as for teambuilding activities doubling as an opportunity for discovering the culture of the Emirates – like having a traditional Arabic dinner together.

Until Next Year

Overall, Gitex 2023 was an overwhelming success for Circularo. Special thanks go to the Almoe team for providing us the space and opportunity to be there, TDRA for giving us the platform to present GovSign, all of the clients and partners we’ve had the chance to meet, everyone who stopped by our stand to learn about eSignatures, and last but not least our colleagues here at Circularo who were working extra hard leading up to and during the event, making sure we have the best Gitex presence possible.

Until next year, may it be even bigger and better than this one.
