Located in the pulse of the city, the event drew crowds locally and internationally with a range of technology offers.
Prior to the event, The PC Show conducted an independent survey online, with over 500 respondents based in Singapore to gauge their purchasing interests. According to the results, more than 50% indicated that computers and laptops were top on their shopping lists*.
Ms Gillian Loh, project manager of show organiser, Lines Exposition and Management Services shared that: “The PC Show has always been a household name for shoppers looking to purchase the latest gadgets, including computers and laptops, at a real bargain. This year, we were excited to bring the event closer to the city where it’s accessible for everyone and the crowds have been very positive. We look forward to creating yet another exciting event for all through our valued partnerships and participation with our exhibitors.”
The PC Show has been at the forefront of Singapore’s IT and consumer electronics fair for 27 years. This year, the show continued to provide wallet-friendly discounts from leading brand names such as Aftershock PC, Creative, Dell, Dreamcore, Fujifilm, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and many more.
Joe Wee, Marketing Manager of Aftershock PC Pte Ltd said: “There is an increasing demand these days for performance computers. We are pleased to have showcased our latest line-up of performance desktops and laptops including the latest Prime-15 gaming notebook, an ultra slim 1.9kg gaming notebook that is powered by the latest Intel i7 7th gen processor and high-end NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1060 graphics card.”
Shaun Tan, Founder of Dreamcore said: “The response that we received over the four days have been overwhelming. Consumers love Dreamcore’s unique ethos of powerful yet beautiful PCs, and our newly launched Reverie was extremely well received. As a relatively new player in the custom PC industry, consumer technology fairs like The PC Show are ideal platforms for us to increase our brand awareness in the market.”
