GITEX is the largest and most sophisticated Information Technology exhibition in the Middle East, and is held annually in Dubai, every October. The 2011 GITEX marks the 31st meeting. The MIS department at Alhosn University is keen on keeping its students updated on the current state-of-the-art technology and information edge. To that end, a field trip for instructors, TAs and students was organized on Wednesday, October 12th, 2011 to visit GITEX. The students were accompanied by Dr. Fadia Hegazy, Dr. Mohamed Zineddine, Ms. Huda Kindi and Ms. Nahla Arafa. During the trip the MIS students were exposed to the latest technology in the field of information systems security, hardware and software, and mobile and e-government technology advances. The group also visited GITEX Shopper at the Airport Expo Dubai and enjoyed a late snack.
