Organisers said that they will be able to deliver stronger promotions by merging the two events at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
It is now set to take place on Tuesday October 2 until Saturday October 6.
Gitex Shopper is the biggest and longest-running consumer electronics show in the region and attracts exhibitors including Dell, Asus, Microsoft, HP, Samsung and more.
Typically, the companies offer great deals to consumers in April and save their announcements for the main week in October.
Jumbo Electronic, one of the retailers taking part, had this to day: “DWTC’s decision to merge the two events after consultation with retailers supports us in creating a more focused festive promotional campaign to offer best value to shoppers.”
But the good news is that if you’re looking for some pre-summer deals, Time Out Dubai has got you sorted.
