  • Congratulations on bringing Intelligent SME to all of us. I have been an avid reader of your magazine and feel it covers some of the most relevant topics for entrepreneurs. I look forward to reading your other two magazines that you plan to launch next year, the Robust RAK and the Apps Middle East. Kindly put us on your subscription list.

  • Congratulationns on the inaugural Global App Summit ’13. I was looking to build an App for a client. I spent half a day at the event and met almost 15 App companies. I also had the opportunity to pop into some of the expert sessions. It was totally worth my time and I was very glad I came to the event. Congratulations once again, can’t wait for the next edition. And kudos to the Apps ME magazine(Innovation & Tech), as well. Love it.

We would like to express our gratitude for your excellent coverage of our company. The entire staff appreciated the professionalism with which you handled both the interview and the final presentation. I’m thankful and grateful to you to have published such positive, upbeat report on the Armored Vehicles. We hope to maintain this upward momentum with quality service at reasonable prices and look forward for further participation. Please extend our thanks to everyone involved.

  • To be very frank, after some of the other Mobile conferences in Dubai, I was expecting very little from Global App Summit.  I was pleasantly surprised as some of the speakers were really mind-opening.  Bringing knowledge from the Far East was a great touch that really opened our eyes to what the future brings. I look forward to next year’s show.

  • Global Business Series “I have been attending past few events organized by your team and I must mention it's a great platform to gain valuable knowledge and network with amazing people. I would like my company to be one of the partners supporting the event in future. Could someone guide as to what's required so we can prepare ourselves?”
