Two major electronics fairs for techies to choose from over the weekend

SINGAPORE - For the first time, consumers here shopping for the latest laptop, camera or telco deal will have the choice of two major electronic fairs over the weekend to pick from.

Both the Consumer Electronics Expo (CEE) at Suntec Singapore and the PC Show at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre will run from Thursday to Sunday (June 1-4), giving consumers double the options for their technology fix.

While both shows feature many major tech brands, each show is going all out to attract consumers.

Visitors will be able to trade their old or unwanted devices at both shows, such as PCs, notebooks, tablets and smartphones. Those with unwanted LCD or LED monitors can trade them in at the PC Show, while those with gaming consoles and games can do so at CEE.

The Mobot booth at CEE will also accept trade-ins for e-mobility devices such as e-scooters and hoverboards.

Shutterbugs looking to get deals on Sony, Canon and Olympus cameras can find them only at CEE, as those are exclusive to the exhibition there. However, local audio firm Creative will only be at the PC Show, along with a dedicated gaming zone with gaming tournaments and unboxing sessions.

CEE is organised by Exhibits Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings. The Newstead and Challenger exhibitions on the first and third floor respectively will be open from 11am to 9pm, while the main show floor on level four is open from noon to 9pm daily.

The PC Show, organised by Lines Exposition and Management Services, will run from noon to 9pm daily across three halls at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
