DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – 27 September 2021 – As Middle East organisations look to make changes that increase their efficiency and cost-savings while decreasing their eco-footprint, Epson showcases smart, sustainable switches at GITEX Technology Week 2021.
Epson’s range of solutions support the region’s fastest-growing industries across the corporate, retail, immersive, and education sectors.

Epson’s interactive display solutions, such as projectors and visualisers, can support physical distancing in meeting rooms and more engaging presentations for remote workers. Middle East organisations that adopt interactive display solutions, business scanners and business inkjet printing solutions, can optimise their costs, efficiency, and sustainability.
The majority of Middle East organisations in the retail and hospitality sector, including small businesses, are looking at ways to advance and digitise processes. Epson offers several products such as TM-m30II-S mPOS devices and ColorWorks C6000 label printers that can transform point-of-sale and customer experiences, improve brand communication, and reduce cost and paper waste in the process. Showcasing agile switches to low-cost retail solutions, the Epson stand will also display digital signage solutions such as the EB-800F ultra-short-throw display solution. and Lightscene EV-105 lighting projector.
As educational institutions continue with hybrid learning environments, Epson will feature education technology innovation that helps to support the changing roles of the teacher as well as creative collaboration and social distancing in the classroom. Epson’s simple educational switches include interactive display solutions, education document cameras, inkjet printers and scanning solutions for an optimal learning environment – bringing learning to life.
Epson will showcase compact and affordable home solutions that can enhance efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of remote working. Visitors can experience EcoTank printers, the economical alternative to traditional ink cartridge printers.
Epson will also launch scalable and cost-effective streaming solutions for home viewing and gaming experiences. The new line-up includes the stylish ELPSC35 ultra-short throw projector screen supporting laser TV projection and EH-LS500W laser projector, which allows for 4K streaming via HDMI.
Switch to state-of-the-art immersive technology with Epson, the world’s leading manufacturer of projectors with over a third share of the global projector market. Its high lumen laser projectors will be used to create and demonstrate an immersive and interactive experiential environment at GITEX. Recent Epson research reveals 75% of Middle East respondents have missed going to technologically enhanced events and attractions during the pandemic so there is expected to be a strong ‘bounce back’ for the events industry.
Epson’s solutions are in line with UAE’s leadership in using technology to transform the customer experience post-pandemic. The line-up on display at GITEX also includes projectors for retailers, hospitality organisations, museums, and visitor attractions to differentiate customer experiences with more impactful signage and experiential immersive displays.
Sustainability is a high priority for Epson and the company aims to make a difference in overcoming global environmental issues through its innovative technologies. Its pioneering range of printers with Heat-Free technology help customers and business partners switch to eco-friendly solutions and lower their environmental footprint, requiring less energy and fewer replacement parts without compromise. The ‘Turn Down the Heat’ campaign, a collaboration between Epson and National Geographic, aims to encourage and raise awareness of how businesses can reduce their impact on global warming and will also be activated at the stand.
In addition, Epson will officially launch PaperLab to the region. PaperLab is the first in-office, paper secure recycler in the world, that turns wastepaper into new paper. It helps businesses securely destroy sensitive information, recycle, reduce environmental impact and take control of paper supplies.
