More than 35,000 products will be showcased at GITEX Shopper, including the widest range of smartphones, HDTVs, laptops, wearable tech, smart watches, cameras, and gaming consoles among many others. 
 
“GITEX Shopper has been one of the hottest highlights on Dubai's annual calendar for over 20 years, and has taken generations of consumers on a tech journey since it began. Visitors wait every year for the show to come round so that they can snap up the latest products and best deals. This year's event has come at a fantastic time, as highly anticipated tech devices such as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are now available in the UAE, and shoppers have the chance to try before they buy. This is an unmissable event, not only for tech enthusiasts but for anyone looking for the best deals when upgrading their tech devices and gadgets,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). 
 
A staggering number of prize draws, scratch cards and competitions give shoppers bonus chances to win thousands of dirhams in prize money, the latest tech devices for the home, and mega prizes that include a 2017 Mitsubishi Montero Sport and tickets to the latest entertainment attractions at Dubai Parks & Resorts.
