What is Gitex?
One of the biggest trade events in the global IT calendar, Gitex (Gulf Information Technology Exhibition) Technology Week is when all the latest news and products are revealed. It’s big business, but for consumers like you and us, all eyes are on Gitex Shopper, the region’s largest consumer IT and electronics show. Gitex Shopper 2011, which runs alongside the 31st edition of Gitex Technology Week on October 8-15, will feature more than 25,000 products, with technology giants such as Bose, Nakamichi, Nokia and Virgin Megastore all making their Gitex Shopper debut this year. In 2010, sales from the show were around Dhs175 million – that’s the equivalent of shoppers spending Dhs37,000 each minute – and this year it’s expected to be more.
Dhs30 entry. Open Sat 8-Wed 12 11am-10pm; Thu 13 and Sat 15 11am-11pm; Fri 14 3pm-11pm. Dubai Airport Expo, www.gitexshopperdubai.com.
