Press Release

With students back to schools and universities about to start the new academic year, the organisers of GITEX Shopper today announced a substantial entry discount of 67% for students who pre-book in a group of 50 or more. The price for a regular entry ticket is AED 30, but school and university students who take advantage of the group-booking discount will pay just AED 10.

GITEX Shopper, the region’s largest consumer IT and electronics show is offering more than just great entry prices for students. Running earlier this year for eight days, from 29 September to 6 October 2012 at its new home in Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), GITEX Shopper provides a selection of bundled deals and special prices on over 25,000 of the latest gadgets, gizmos and top tech products certain to be on the wish list of student shoppers.

“Technology plays a significant role in the modern educational system, enabling students easy access to resources, help in learning more efficiently and increasing productivity. GITEX Shopper is the perfect one-stop shop destination to discover the latest products,” said Trixee Loh, Senior Vice President, DWTC, organiser of GITEX Shopper. “These students are the potential architects of the next generation in tech products, so it is important for us to encourage them at every level.”

Student groups taking advantage of the discounted entry prices can visit the between Sunday and Thursday, if they pre-book for their group of 50 or more people. Group bookings for students can be prearranged by their educational institution’s management. Enquiries regarding this can be sent to GITEX Shopper’s management team at Student groups should be accompanied by the institution’s staff members.

But it won’t be all tech and no play for students visiting GITEX Shopper this year. With a host of exhibitors showcasing their latest gaming products and running gaming competitions throughout the week, students can try their hand (or thumbs) at the many prizes up for grabs. Top gaming brands participating at GITEX Shopper include Geekay Games and Nintendo.

GITEX Shopper 2012 will take place from 29 September – 6 October 2012. The show is open from 11:00am – 10:00pm from Saturday 29 September to Wednesday 3 October; from 11am – 11pm on Thursday 4 October to Saturday 6 October. For the first time ever, the event will open for longer hours on Friday from 11:00am.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
