GITEX Shopper is back next month to offer gadget and technology buyers the chance to access the best electronics deals and promotions available in the region.
Returning to Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) for 2nd-6th October in Za’abeel Halls 4-6, the Autumn 2018 edition will debut four new Xperience Zones for the first time, designed to provide visitors with the knowhow to make informed purchases during the show.
This year, for one of its sections in its new Xperience Zone, the GITEX Shopper team has recruited an army of techsperts from Tech Radar to assist shoppers on the best products to purchase, while a series of Tricks & Tips sessions will see the techsperts offer support, guidance and tips on getting the most out of electronic purchases.
From providing tricks on switching between Android and iOS, to taking better photographs on your mobile, GITEX Shopper visitors can get exclusive insights through numerous free-to-attend panel sessions. There will also be an opportunity to check-in for one-on-one advice about the latest smart phones, laptops, tablets, TVs and more.
