gitex shopper is not very different from others he said adding: “but i think the attraction of this gitex shopper from the previous one are newly-launched mobile phones.”

a lot of new mobile phone models were launched recently especially by sony samsung htc lenovo and nokia he said adding that all of new models are available with good offers at gitex. “it’s a very good show this time” he emphasised. “the samsung s5 htc m8 and lg g2 mini will play a crucial role in driving traffic to emax’s stand.”

he believes that the smartphone category will record a 50 per cent growth in sales over the last shopper. “that’s the one category which is doing extremely well.”

“we are expecting 20 to 25 per cent growth [in sales] compared to the previous one in april 2013. whereas i think smartphone alone will be on top in sales growth.” a majority of sales come from mid-range products anywhere from dh699 to dh1500 he added.

tablets are also doing extremely well like smartphones he said adding that there is no much difference between both. sizes of smartphones are increasing and tablets sizes are decreasing. so these products are doing very well as these are the future of electronics such as smartphones tablets and wearable devices he explained.

he said that there is no future of unbranded products in the markets and it’s better people should buy genuine and branded products with authorised retailers. he also advised gitex shopper visitors “don’t wait until the last day and come and do the shopping as soon as possible as there is no guarantee of stocks specially for latest products at the event.”

gitex shopper is all about offers bundles and free gifts on purchases. emax is offering plenty of offers and promotions on various categories of consumer electronics including some of their current best-sellers.

“we have dh10 million worth of giveaways this year” he said adding: “this edition of shopper will play a major role in exposing the latest products to our customers in the emirates not only dubai. customers to emax electronics’ stand have a variety of options in smartphones tablets laptops gaming tvs and cameras. we are dedicating a huge number of trained staff in addition to special experts from each brand. our staff is always there to help customers make the right choice and answer questions. we are offering huge discounts on select products with attractive bundles and freebies on almost all the products showcased during shopper.”
