Sorry but i have to say it ..

Is it me or are some GITEX exhibitors are way over-doing it this year with their female promoters' skimpy outfits? I wanted to take photos to show you what I mean; but I honestly didn't have the heart to do it.

Just remove all the silver-space-age makeup stuff and you can easily realize that some of these girls are barely 16!


  • I agree! I was there today and it surprised me a bit.

  • Dunno...didnt notice any of that at Shopper. Wish the sponsors would tone down those eye burning t-shirt colours though.

    Now, if we talk about some of the customers....

  • I did not go yet, but surpassingly one of my co-workers was really excited about going, when I asked him why, he said "Hot chicks and hot technology, a guy's dream come true."

    See, hormones play a role.

  • no no, you don't find promotores at GITEX, they are Models, and I'm serious, I know a couple of event organizers and they hired MODELS not promoters. and of course they are not modeling the IT products are they???

  • No wonder our sales guys wanted to fly down from Kuwait to attend.

    I put a lid on that idea and said no!

  • (Sorry for the random-ness of this post)…

    Four months ago I posted on many blogs, letting everyone know that we were trying to start a podcast (Rabbit Hole Daily) by people who had emigrated to other countries…

    I thought it would be interesting to share all of our “misadventures” and news… I had hoped to get a contributor to/from every continent (i.e., a Brazilian in Japan, a Japanese person in France, a French person in Australia, etc.).

    People leave their respective home-countries for all kinds of reasons; some people marry a “foreigner” and leave their country, some people take a job or do academic research out of their country, some are forced to leave for political reasons, some do it for the adventure. The podcast was designed to welcome all of these points of view. We’ve been working with mixed success to get all types of voices…

    Podcasts are a great way to get complex stories out that would never make it onto tv or radio, and we’d like to use the medium to create something that’s informative, eclectic, and interesting, all voices and topics welcome (provided they’re well-written)!

    At any rate, I’m writing to renew my call for contributors and say that we’re still around. We were accepted by itunes, we’ve been publishing consistently, and although we’ve had some technical concerns (people write articles, read them into a mic, then get them to me via internet or skype; getting it all edited evenly has been a challenge), we’ve just received some equipment donations by listeners that will make it possible to produce with ever-better audio quality.

    Please consider listening to the podcast, and more importantly, contributing articles. (Articles are 2-3 pages, submitted 4-6 times per year, contributors are featured on our “contributor profiles” page, rules for contributing can be found on the “contribute here” portion.) If you know someone who has emigrated from their country of origin and is a good writer, please pass the word!

  • SO true! And you are right ACHINAR, they are ALL models.

    Infact we needed some models for an event our company was having and guess what - all booked out coz of GITEX.

    Though some of them are just teenagers in high school who get paid 80 dirhams an hour to stand around and smile.

    Who said sex doesnt sell?
