DUBAI: The last day of the ongoing Gitex Shopper brought a number of joyful moments for the visitors as many participating retailers announced big discounts on a wide range of products.
The four-day shopping extravaganza began on April 1 at the Dubai World Trade Centre with the participation of all leading retail brands in the UAE who brought over 35,000 products under one roof with enticing promotions.JAMIL-GITEX-Shoppers-1
The top retailers to lure the huge number of visitors had also brought an army of young students who were serving as salespersons. Many in their employers’ provided gear occupied the main entrance and other prominent corners in the exhibition halls and waved banners and other advertisement material like placards, posters and pamphlets to announce updated promotions.
Some of the prominent brands entertained visitors to set up different activities like dance and quiz shows to give away freebies. The freebies being given to the shoppers as part of the sale deals ranged from the latest wireless charger, selfie sticks (monopod rods), varieties of bluetooth speakers, headphones, micro memory cards, battery packs, car charger, anti-virus solutions as well as laptop bags.
A force of helpers on the main entry and exit points carrying trolleys helped shoppers to move their heavy equipment like huge TV sets, sound system and other appliances from the hall to their parked cars.
Besides, the abundance of varieties of mobile phones from all the leading brands such as Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG, Lenovo, HTC and others, the retailers also showcased other brands recently introduced in the local market and the exhibition was also full of promotional offers from “ buy one get one free”, gift vouchers and others.
The visitors also took keen interest in other electronic products including smart TVs, smart home kitchen appliances like refrigerators, microwave, blenders, juicers and others. Many vendors also promoted different varieties of iron gadgets, juicers and other kitchen appliances. Remote-controlled cars, drones and other toys were also glued to the attention of visitors as the 30 per cent and 50 per cent discounts were enough for many to buy.
Shutterbugs also glued to the stalls selling leading branded digital cameras at as low as Dhs200 to Dhs2000 plus which came with free cases, memory cards and tripods.
Sen, a student from a local university and resident of Karama, told The Gulf Today that he wanted to buy something but had no idea of such huge promotions especially on laptop computers and digital cameras. “I was longing to have one DSLR and now the Gitex Shopper bundle offers are enough for me to buy one and definitely I will have one before leaving the exhibition,” she told.
