The first ever GITEX Shopper Spring launches at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) on 3 April, running from Wednesday until Saturday 6 April.

Created under the directive of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, and similar in concept to its long-established sister show GITEX Shopper, which takes place every autumn, the spring version will offer discounts and other deals on the latest electronic products from a range of brands.

As with GITEX Shopper, the spring even will also feature the region's power retailers, including E-Max, E-City, Jacky's Electronics, Jumbo Electronics and Sharaf DG.

"With a Shopper Spring edition, we are now able to meet the overwhelming buyers demand created at the original GITEX Shopper exhibition," said Trixee Loh, senior vice president, DWTC, organiser of both GITEX Shopper shows.

"Judging by the immediate sell-out of the space allocated for the new Spring edition, this is a decision that has been equally welcomed by global brands and retailers in the region.

"We are delighted to extend the new twice-a-year shopping experience offered by GITEX Shopper to April and October. With the most important power retailers on board, all with big stands and more products, and the show open for 12 hours a day for the full four days, GITEX Shopper Spring is set to deliver an exceptional show," said Loh.

In addition to platinum sponsor Samsung, other brands and retailers represented at the show include One mobile, Blackberry, Dell, du, HP, Nokia, VV & Sons and many more. 

Firas Tayfour, head of retail, Samsung Gulf Electronics said: "GITEX Shopper continues to be one of the best and most successful platforms for Samsung to engage and interact with our customers. Not only will we showcase new and cutting edge technologies from Samsung that enrich people's lives, our customers can also expect exciting offers on the latest Samsung products at this year's event."
