Discounted gadgets and smartphones to be again top sellers at Abu Dhabi Electronics Shopper

Gadget lovers and bargain hunters are warming up for the third edition of Abu Dhabi Electronics Shopper, which opens tomorrow at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

Up to 70,000 people are expected to the visit the event, which runs until Saturday.

Discounts will be offered on brands including Samsung, Nikon, Huawei and Toshiba, as well as a number of offers from retailers including Sharaf DG, Plug-Ins and Jacky’s Electronics.


“We have closely worked with participating outlets and consumer brands to make sure that the visitor feels a real difference in the prices of gadgets that they purchase through the promotion shows,” said Antoine Georges, the managing director of the event organiser, Dome Exhibitions.

Standard tickets cost Dh10.

Last year’s event generated Dh35 million in sales, a figure that is expected to be exceeded this year, according to Mr Georges.

Smartphones are once again likely to be the biggest sellers at the show, with models by Apple, Lenovo and Samsung expected to dominate, according to Jehas Habison, the purchasing manager of Costless Electronics, which will be exhibiting at the show.

“[Ades] is never going to be as big as Gitex, which attracts not only the Dubai population but visitors from around the region,” said Mr Habison. “But there’s definitely the potential for it to grow, as the demand is definitely there.”
