This year’s PC Show proved once again why it is the longest running and the most highly anticipated IT and consumer electronics show in Singapore, with visitors the first in Asia to get up close with new products such as the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon table PC, the Slate7; HP’s first Android product and AC Ryan’s VEOLO Smart Android Hub.
In its 23rd year, the show welcomed nearly one million visitors at a new location, the Singapore Expo and was again an anchor event in the calendars of major brands such as Lenovo, Dell, Canon and AC Ryan as well as new players like Astell Asia Group.
“The crowd has been huge this year, and the show has, on overall, been very vibrant and busy. We’ve seen great response from the visitors to our booth for our latest innovations such as the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, and the IdeaPad Yoga 11s – both have won multiple products during this year’s CES. Our sales have improved at this year’s PC Show, and this tells us that our customers who are sophisticated are always on the lookout for the latest innovations coupled with great value,” remarked Jessie Quek, Country Manager of Lenovo Singapore.
“This year’s PC Show saw HP’s new products garnering keen interest from the crowd. Our extensive range of products across printers, notebooks and PCs received good traction, resulting in favorable sales. Many consumers were on the lookout for affordable tablets, and the HP Slate7 which was launched at the PC Show was well received due to its price point and ideal form factor,” said Serena Yong, General Manager, Printing and Personal Systems, HP Singapore.
Daniel Chia, Marketing Communications Manager of Dell, said, “It’s the first time we’ve increased the number of booths at The PC Show and we were very encouraged by the strong growth in sales figures and high traffic flow. We will be taking up the same number of booths again at next year’s show.”
Astell Asia Group, a first-time exhibitor showcasing Neato – the world’s first laser mapping vacuum cleaner – also achieved good results at the four-day event. “One of our key objectives was to raise awareness of Neato as we’ve only just won the dealership. The foot traffic at The PC Show was very good, and we’ve managed to engage many consumers at the event,” said Doreen Tan, Business Development Manager.
Gillian Loh, Project Manager for Lines Exposition and Management Services, the organiser of The PC Show, said she is confident that in coming years the show will continue to be a major platform for new product launches and attractive bargains.
