As always, it’s been drawing a lot of visitors and I think the weekend is going to be really buzzzzing with folks scouting around for that SUPER deal. If you have been eyeing something for a while and want the right environment to make an impulse decision – Go Now!
There are lots of offers, but even with its many brand offerings, the scope of the exhibition is narrower than it should be.
Some of the high end or newer end models are just not available. Take for example the Lenovo X61 Tablet. Given the size of the Lenovo stall, it’s a pity that they didn’t have one on display or even a price quote for the same. All the people we met there seemed ill- prepared to give any answers on that model. It’s almost as if they never expected anyone to enquire about the X61 tablet!! With the kind of crowd that turns up at COMEX, M/s Lenovo, you got to be ready for anything. Don’t just sell what you have, sell what the customer wants.
I saw similar shortcomings at Apple. Although I think the promoters this time were very good. They were full of energy and quite intelligible, much like the brand itself. We enquired about offers on the Ipod Nano and BOSE docking system as a package ——–‘Blank’
Come on Apple, get Creative! 😉
Comex is on till 2nd Sept from noon to 9 pm at the Suntec City Exhibition Center.
- Be prepared for huge swell of humanity, by Singaporean standards. But, everyone does a wonderful job of not bumping into each other.
- Be prepared for an army of P4’s – Pointless Paper Pushing Promoters. Wouldn’t generalize, some of them really do a good job. (The organizers of COMEX, should put a limit to the no of promoters per stall)
- Be prepared for long queues at the Taxi stand and difficulty booking one.
- Finally be prepared for a lighter wallet / bank account!
My well thought out, impulse purchase at COMEX: a Nikon D40 DSLR kit with extra zoom lens. I am thrilled to bits.
