The fourth edition of GEC Awards was held on 3rd October at The Rixos Premium Dubai. GEC Awards have always been in the limelight for honoring top IT organizations for their unparalleled commitment and undying efforts to keep excelling in their area of expertise. Well, who doesn’t like appreciation? And when appreciation is combined with a night of glamour and entertainment, one surely can’t give it a miss.
GEC Awards is known for innovative theme driven concepts and an overwhelming crowd of C-level executives and top IT professionals. The proud presenters of the event- GEC Media Group and one of the top IT magazine in the region Enterprise Channels MEA always give major event goals by choosing prime properties and extremely lavish setups. The theme this year was woven around the entertainment capital of the world- LAS VEGAS. As soon as I entered I was transported into the world of poker chips, playing cards, dices, and so much more…The tuxedo dressed men and the classy avatar of the ladies lifted the fashion quotient of the night.
Assistant Editor of GEC Media Group, Anushree Dixit highlighted the fact that technology has moved on to conceptual technology. “2017 was a year of transformation. It was all about change. GEC Awards 2017 is also about this change. Technology today is so broad that you cannot limit it to categories. Hence we have also moved from categories to concepts and we are happy to be pioneering in this.” Its a fact that how much ever we may deem technology to be complex we cannot overlook its impact on our lives. Be it consumers or multinationals, technology has majorly changed the way we experience things. Just imagine living in a world without biometrics, cloud, passwords, devices, data management, internet…(unimaginable), the list can go on and on.
