GITEX Shopper Spring gets smarter with new trends


The region’s largest and most anticipated consumer IT and electronics show, GITEX Shopper Spring 2016 is set to return next month with even more fantastic offers and exciting deals across the broadest range of consumer tech products to date. Shopper Smart Living also returns for its second year – a dedicated section offering visitors the chance to discover the latest smart home appliances, automation technology, smart security systems, energy conservation and more.
The show will offer its visitors the latest in innovation and eco-friendly advances from today’s fast-paced tech world, bringing together companies showcasing the latest products contributing to the future of smart home technology.
Taking place from 30 March – 2 April 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), GITEX Shopper Spring 2016 and Shopper Smart Living cater for the region’s increasing demand for home appliances and consumer tech products, driven by a fast growing local and regional population, a considerable appetite for the latest consumer electronics and the growing trend for smart connectivity in everyday business and leisure life.
One of the top 10 fastest growing markets in the world in terms of volume growth, the UAE market for home appliances is estimated to grow by 150% in sales between 2008 and 2019, and be worth AED 4 billion by 2017. The mobile phone sector is equally
fast-growing, with sales of almost 3.2 million smartphone devices recorded in 2015 – an increase in retail volume growth of 9% over the previous year. “With new technologies being adopted around the world, the need is for all devices – from mobile devices to home appliances – to be faster, smarter, more efficient, convenient and easier to use.
GITEX Shopper Spring and Shopper Smart Living will offer consumers the smartest one stop shop for all their needs, whether for work, leisure or home,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). “Not only will major power retailers and leading international brands be showcasing their latest products at the show, but they’ll collectively be offering more special deals under one roof than anywhere else in the region.”
