"Given the fact that for most new product launches priority stock allocation is given to our stands at Gitex Shopper, if you want the right product in the right colour, youll probably find it at Gitex Shopper," Panjabi added.

"Product offers have also increased this year over previous years due to intense competition between both brands and retailers and this means consumers can expect to get more bang for their buck during this event," Panjabi said.

Nadeem Khanzadah, head of sales at Jumbo Electronics, also expressed his satisfaction on the first day crowd. "So far the footfall is good as today is a non-working day for a lot of people here and we expect more in the evening."

Khanzadah mentioned that the company expects better than last years sales during the show. Jumbo has added two new categories and unveiled blockbuster offers for 5-6 products. This year the company is offering big promotions on Nikon cameras and Samsung TV.
