About GITC

Building Bridges, Unlocking Potential

Industrial Production is the backbone of the economy of developed countries. The German Mittelstand”, often family owned Businesses, are especially successful in this field. Their characteristics are: high quality, innovation, quick response and flexibility.

The recent crises, be it COVID or the Ukraine-Russia war, have revealed that self – sufficiency is more important than ever for all countries. Sharing technologies, know-how and franchise- production are helpful to speed up processes. The basic needs for production can be cost efficiently met with smart solutions. On the other hand, German business owners are looking for new attractive regions to expand and secure their businesses.


The Gulf Investment and Technology Conference aims to create a win-win situation for all involved parties by strengthening the business and economic ties of our regions and discover new business and learning opportunities.
We believe that both regions have much to offer and to share!

Meet key decision makers and high profile companies from the EU, KSA, UAE, Iraq, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman in these sectors: Mining, Oil and Gas , Health care, Training and Education!

The Event is not only a B2B platform, but also an occasion for deepening the excellent relations between the European industry and its partners in the Gulf Region.
