Vodafone Qatar will showcase a range of advanced 5G smart technology solutions at the Qatar IT Conference and Exhibition 2019 (QITCOM), in which it will participate as an ‘Official’ sponsor.

In keeping with the QITCOM theme, ‘Safe, Smart Cities’, Vodafone Qatar will engage with official entities and the public in a spacious 1,000 sqm area to demonstrate technologies powered by ultra-fast 5G wireless Internet connectivity: virtual reality, Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, big data analytics, smart technologies for homes and industries, and how they converge to enable innovative solutions for a sustainable digitised environment.

Visitors to Vodafone Qatar’s pavilion will experience live and interactive demonstrations of 5G-enabled smart technologies in five zones: Smart Homes; Connected Retail Stores; Smart Industry; Smart City and Gaming.

A dedicated space of 150 sq m will be occupied by international tech start-ups, who will showcase various creative ways in which they are harnessing the potential of 5G. With this, Vodafone Qatar aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge transfer with local start-ups and businesses.

Vodafone Qatar’s innovative participation in QITCOM further highlights its role as a key player in achieving the National Vision 2030, and in supporting the nation as it becomes one of the most digitally connected in the world.

Vodafone Qatar Chief Executive Officer, Sheikh Hamad Abdulla Jassim Al Thani, said:

“Qatar is at an exciting stage of its journey to develop smart cities, and we are proud to be an official sponsor of QITCOM as a platform to exchange knowledge and highlight new technologies that will further advance that vision. “

“Vodafone Qatar is primed to demonstrate the power of its 5G network to enable innovation for all industries – that bring us closer to smarter, safer cities.”

As part of its ongoing social responsibility programme, Vodafone Qatar will also run four action learning educational activities in the Digital Youth Festival Tumuha Tec happening on the side-lines of QITCOM.

The activities raise awareness and build skills around Internet safety and new technology among children and parents, and will use virtual reality to teach kids what 5G is.

QITCOM will run from October 29 to November 1 at the Qatar National Convention Centre, with Vodafone Qatar’s pavilion located at Hall 5, stand  number H5C6 – H5J6.
