Gitex Shopper

It can be a little intimidating shopping for the latest in technology. Are you due for an upgrade? Is this phone too expensive? Can it take a good selfie? Dubai’s Gitex Shopper is back, and will answer all those questions – plus offer some bargain deals along with it.

Kicking off on Tuesday October 2, the five-day electronic shopping extravaganza brings in top electronic brands, retailers and expert tech enthusiasts all under one roof.

The event has a lot to show, including dirham-saving offers on over 35,000 products, tips and tricks on iPhones, Androids and all sorts of gadgets with its “techsperts”, plus an Xperience Zone where customers can test out products before they buy them.

What kind of tech, you ask? Think along the lines of the latest smartphones from iconic brands Samsung and Apple, decked out gaming rigs from Dell gaming laptops to PlayStations, the best Bluetooth headsets and a whole lot more.

The earlier you get down there, the better, as stock on some of the best deals is limited. If you’re looking for hassle-free shopping without all the buzz, going on a weekday is your best bet – so put that lunch hour to good use.

If you want to simply peruse the latest tech and gadgets instead, Gitex Shopper has many special shows and areas for window-shoppers to take part in.

Gamers can get their hands on the latest games such as Fortnite and FIFA 19 on 4K screens, while shoppers can also check out the “Drone Zone” to learn how to properly pilot a drone. Who knows? You may just be a natural.

As for prizes, shoppers will get the chance to win just by visiting the show, with items up for grabs including Honor 8X smartphones, Xbox Forza Horizon 4 consoles, Nikon Cameras and AED1,000 vouchers to spend on Dell products, plus a grand draw prize of an MG ZS. There’s also the chance to win back your money when you spend more than AED2,000, plus take part in The Price Is Right gameshow to be in with a chance of landing yourself a travel experience. 

Entry to the event is priced at AED20, open daily until Saturday October 6 from 11am all the way until 11pm at Dubai World Trade Centre, and tickets are available now online.
