This September marks the return of GITEX Shopper, the much-anticipated electronics show offering the latest product launches from the region’s largest power retailers and brands. GITEX Shopper 2017 takes place from the 23rd – 30th September 2017, and this year is held at a new location, Za’abeel Halls 3-6 in the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
The eight-day sales extravaganza, which has been part of the consumer tech growth in the region for nearly 30 years, has contributed to millions of dollars in sales for the world’s top brands and the region’s power retailers. The UAE consumer electronics market alone is now worth $ 11.3 billion, according to Euromonitor International. A key driver of this growth is consumer connectivity, a constant in today’s world. Mobile phone companies shipped more than 347.4 million smartphones worldwide in the first quarter of 2017. Meanwhile wearable tech and increasingly accessible VR hardware continues to broaden the category.
“GITEX Shopper is without a doubt a highlight of the year for the region. It’s an excellent opportunity to purchase the latest must-have consumer electronics at unbeatable prices. With flash sales, all the UAE’s major retailers under one roof and prizes to be won, the show really is a bargain-hunter’s dream,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). “This year, GITEX Shopper will be held at a new location in DWTC at the Za’abeel Halls – the new venue will offer maximum flexibility to accommodate a wide selection of the top tech products from brands and retailers.”
The widest range of smartphones, TVs, laptops, wearable tech, smart watches, cameras and gaming consoles among many others, will be showcased under one roof. Giving consumers the ability to comparison shop on site truly allows for savvy shoppers to get the biggest bang for their buck. GITEX Shopper will also run competitions and prizes, with millions of dirhams up for grabs. More than 35,000 products will be on offer at the show this year, with the world’s top tech brands showcasing the latest products, including Samsung, HP, Nikon, and more.
GITEX Shopper 2017 will take place from 23-30 September and will open from 11:00am – 11:00pm every day. This year, tickets for GITEX Shopper will be priced at AED 30 for the weekdays and AED 35 for the weekend. Entry is free for children below the age of five.
