Jamal Al Jassim Electronics is showcasing a plethora of products at Gitex today as it presents offerings from the wide range of vendors it represents, including LG, Dell, D-Link Networks, Tripp Lite, Dazzle, Western Digital, Genius, HP, Intel, Acer, Creative and Iomega. In particular, the Saudi distributor will be highlighting notebooks from LG and Dell. “We participate in Gitex Saudi Arabia to display our products. Today, we are displaying the latest LG Express Notebooks, which are very slim and stylish and have Sonoma processors. LG used to be about home products primarily, but now we are heavily marketing its product to the corporate and government sector,” explains Jamal Al Jassim Electronics’ Mohammed Al Galayini. “We are also introducing the new Dell Inspiron notebooks and Dimension PCs in a separate booth to introduce people to the fact that we have become a Dell distributor. Our Tripp Lite products are being displayed on their own stand this year because we are introducing the big size Online UPS’ like the 10K, 20K, 30K,” he adds. Al Galayini says the Saudi Arabian IT market is booming, with growth in 2005 expected to be no less than 30%. Furthermore, he says the market is being driven by a combination of lower prices and new products. As such, this week’s show is a key event for Jamal Al Jassim Electronics’ success this year, as it presents a great opportunity for the firm to tap into the Kingdom’s IT spend. “There is a very big opportunity in the Saudi Arabian technology market… and this year, because we have a huge variety of notebooks, we expect to experience a good selling environment,” Al Galayini says.
