GITEX Shopper 2006

The ultimate shopping platform in the region and the consumer arm of the 26th edition of GITEX 2006, is scheduled to be held from 18-24 November 2006 at the Airport Expo Dubai in a total gross area of 22, 000 sq meters.

With more than 120, 000 buyers expected to attend this action packed high-energy event, the exhibition will see approximately 150 vendors, distributors and resellers battling it out with their latest launches, best deals and spectacular promotions, all under one roof.

Riding this momentum will be laptops with Intel Core 2 Duo processors - two processing cores or computing 'brains' that can handle multiple tasks in less time while consuming less power. This means cooler, sleeker or smaller systems besides improved performance for videos, gaming, and multimedia activities-especially when running multiple applications simultaneously.

Besides laptops, mobile phones, PDAs and other digital mobility devices will also be offered by a large number of retailers at GITEX Shopper. According to international market research firm IDC, worldwide shipments of cell phones rose 26% in the first quarter of 2006 compared with the same period last year. Leading brands in the mobile phone sector are expected to offer mobile devices with additional features at this year's GITEX Shopper.

GITEX Shopper has established itself as the single largest retail platform for technology in the Middle East and this year has an expanded profile of that includes Information Technology, Consumer Electronics, Digital Mobility, Gaming and Entertainment, Office Automation and Telecommunications.
