At GITEX and the Urban Futurism conference in Dubai, my role as a speaker and moderator was electric, plunging into the nexus of tech and city governance that resonates with my experience as NYC’s CTO. The event buzzed with cutting-edge thought, pulling me into deep conversations on urban innovation with global visionaries. Dubai's pulsating energy was the ultimate stage for these progressive dialogues. The announcement of GITEX's global expansion is thrilling, and I eagerly anticipate engaging with it further.
