Can you share a specific experience during the inMalta 2023 event that impacted your business or professional growth?

Participating in GITEX Dubai, as part of the inMalta 2023 events, marked our first venture outside the European market. Initially sceptical about showcasing at such a massive global tech event, the experience surpassed our expectations. We gained significant exposure, attracting a good audience, and mostimportantly, we established new business relationships and partnerships that opened doors to markets beyond Europe. This leap out of our comfort zone into uncharted territory not only proved to be a valuable growth opportunity but also highlighted the importance of embracing global platforms for expanding our reach and forging meaningful connections in the tech industry.

How has participating in the inMalta 2023 international events helped your business in terms of visibility, networking, or other opportunities?

The exposure from GITEX Dubai significantly increased our brand visibility and enabled us to expand our networks into markets previously seen as challenging for a small company like ours. This event opened new market opportunities that we hadn’t considered in our initial business plan. We discovered that with the right partners, we can significantly reduce the go-to-market time in new territories, making it a game-changer for our expansion strategy. This experience underscored the value of leveraging international platforms to explore untapped markets and accelerate our growth beyond traditional boundaries.
