UAE-based electronics chain Jumbo Electronics has announced that with sales already up by over 35% following the first two days of GITEX Shopper 2012, Jumbo's CEO expects revenues to exceed previous return records.

Smartphones, tablets, laptops and Sony TVs are proving the biggest draw among the GITEX shopping horde.

Vishesh Bhatia, CEO of Jumbo Electronics, said: "It is clear that the move to the World Trade Centre and its easy Metro access has helped increase overall visitor numbers and this has helped further boost overall sales.

"Furthermore, the great offers we have for the public are driving our sales increase and we have found in particular that Apple tablets, Samsung phones, Sony Vaio laptops and Sony TVs are among the most popular products to date.

"With a sales hike of 35 per cent already over the first days of Gitex Shopper we are confident that we will surpass all previous sales and make this the biggest Gitex ever for Jumbo Electronics."
