GITEX Shopper 2007 – all set to redefine the IT, Digital Convergence and Consumer Electronics shopping experience
Get connected! Tune in! Log on! If technology matters to you, ensure that you do whatever it takes to be a part of GITEX Shopper & Consumer Electronics Expo 2007, the single largest retail event for IT consumer electronics and digital convergence in the region! This mega-event in its 17th edition will be held at Airport Expo Dubai from 6 â€“ 12 September 2007, and is expected to attract over 135,000 potential consumers from across the Middle East. Visitors will range from IT professionals to end users, tech-savvy enthusiasts to trade buyers as well as students and discerning bargain-hunters.
One of the biggest draws during this yearâ€™s event promises to be the newly added â€œLeisure and Lifestyle Electronicsâ€? section. Automotive enhancements, cameras and lenses, clocks and watches, digital receivers, games, global positioning systems and a host of lifestyle electronics and gadgets will add a new dimension to the event, attracting a younger, trendier and more lucrative audience than before.
â€œGITEX Shopper has always been an event that has moved with the times. With the rapid ongoing expansion that Dubai is enjoying, the standard of living being offered to its residents has significantly improved. Lifestyle electronics is a sign of the times, and it makes perfect sense to accommodate this new segment in this yearâ€™s eventâ€?, said Mr Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General, Dubai World Trade Centre.
This yearâ€™s show will utilise all three halls at the Airport Expo Dubai and the timing will be extended by an hour on all the days of the show. In addition to the new section, gaming and entertainment, consumer electronics, information technology, digital mobility and office automation will be featured again.
GITEX Shopper 2007 will attract many trade visitors who can take the exhibitorâ€™s business to a whole new level. Fayez Hakim, the Retail Manager of Emirates Computers commented on this fact when he said â€œWe have been exhibiting here for a few years now, and the sales have exceeded expectations each time. The target audience is focussed, the facilities are ideal and the results are showing. We recorded a 15% increase in sales in 2006 compared to the previous year.â€?
Saleemuddin Khan, General Manager, RadioShack (Global Link Communications LLC) said â€œParticipation at the GITEX Shopper 2006 was an opportunity not only to generate revenue but also further strengthen awareness within UAE and the region. It was a good platform for retailers to recognise their brand exposure in a multi national and multi cultural atmosphere. We experienced a substantial higher turnover during the Showâ€?.
