Though GITEX Shopper is well known as the home for the latest laptops, smartphones and TVs, the four-day event also offers a whole weekend of family fun. From Virtual Reality demonstrations & games to a variety of tasty food truck options, state of the art smart appliances and luxury massage chairs, GITEX Shopper Spring, located at Dubai World Trade Centre, promises something for everyone in the family.

With giveaways of cash, tech products and even gold up for grabs, E-Max, Jacky’s Electronics, Jumbo Electronics, Plug Ins and Sharaf DG are lining the show floor, offering consumers unbeatable deals, bundles and flash sales on more than 35,000 products.

Visitors to GITEX Shopper come for the massive savings on smartphones and laptops, but stay for the entertainment and excitement. For those seeking savings, this weekend only, shoppers can save AED2,499 and take home an iPhone 7 and a HP Spectre laptop for as little as AED6,999 thanks to Sharaf DG’s exclusive GITEX Shopper mega offer.

Attracting the younger generation, leading brands and retailers have a range of Kids Tablets, gaming consoles, karaoke sets, robots and cameras all suitable for children, making GITEX Shopper Spring the perfect outing for all the family.

Visitors to GITEX Shopper are excited to bring their families for a day out. “I not only attended today to get a camera for the family but I also wanted to buy a mobile for my son,” said one tech-savvy dad. “We look forward to every GITEX Shopper Spring to get the best deals available and my son of course is particularly excited to be here and see the latest trends in the market.

“We’ve also seen the virtual reality roller coaster ride that’s on at the Samsung stand and that is something we will all enjoy doing later together.”

Combining Virtual Reality with design, artist Matt Ryder is taking to the GITEX Shopper main stage daily to draw fully immersive 3D caricatures using the HTC Vive Tilt, giving shoppers an experience to remember.

Robotics are also drawing in the crowds, with the USD$10,000 Sanbot robot proving a popular hit with UAE government authorities who are in talks with the provider ehome to use it in Dubai Customs and the Ajman police force.

Mohammed Nabeel Sheikh, Business Development Management, ehome said: “This is where the future is heading. These types of robots can be programmed to deliver any service from a receptionist to a teacher. Their capabilities are limitless and they can be integrated with the cloud platform, making them easily accessible.”

Its mother company Isukoshi Healthcare, who provides a range of luxury massage chairs and have the Dubai Royal Family as one of their main customers, are selling their products for special GITEX Shopper rates starting as low as AED280 for a neck and shoulder massage device.

“So far the event has been hugely successful. We have lots of shoppers purchasing our products from small massage devices to our luxury reclining body massage chairs. It has been non-stop and we are introducing all age groups to the next generation of smart home appliances,” Sheikh added.

The LG F10C3QDP2 washing machine is also a top pick among shoppers as E-Max reveal it has been one of the most popular home appliance items sold so far at the show, thanks to its 10 year warranty and reduced price of AED979.
