Critical Communications MENA 2018
This year's event is now over but you can still catch up on news and more..
Digital technologies are changing the world. In this new age, rapid advances in digital technology have had a profound impact on our lives, enabling a digital economy and fundamentally reshaping the public safety and commercial landscapes.
CCMENA is now in its 6th year and this year’s event drew critical communications professionals from across the region. This year it was in a new location - the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai, UAE.
We are a gold sponsor of the event and we took an active part in both the exhibition and the conference.
Visitors were able to see us in the exhibition on booth B50 and meet with our industry experts who demonstrated how we can help public safety and commercial organisations build safer, thriving communities and businesses by addressing key challenges of the digital age.
