Launching eMapia at the “Swalif Think Day”

We have launched yesterday at the “Swalif Think Day” event in the Knowledge Village – Dubai.

We have discussed the main difference between eMapia and other marketplaces, which is the user experience! In eMapia, you can search for products using Google Maps based on the location. You can then search for people selling specific items within a geographical location you choose.

Another difference is that eMapia is not an auction based marketplace. People add items and their prices and wait for others to approach them by email, phone or private messages.

eMapia is a sister company with the same team behind There will be a lot of integration between the two sites in the future to allow people delivering their sold items through

The event was very informative and many key Internet players in the Arab region have attended.

Mr. Husni Khuffash, Manager of Google in the UAE, honored the event by giving some insight about Google’s plans for the Arab world.

Following are some pictures of the event:
