Visiting COMEX 2012 at Suntec Singapore

As usual, I hit COMEX 2012 on the second afternoon of the 4-day event, before the end-of-week crowds roll in after work to look for bargains.

Compared to the PC Show in June, the crowds at COMEX 2012 was bigger during this second-afternoon slot – which is what I believe to be the “lullest” time-window of the four annual 4-day IT exhibitions..

I managed to park at Suntec Singapore itself after a 15-minute queue at car park entrance E. Don’t even think about driving to COMEX over the weekend. Do yourself a favour and take public transport instead.

There’re more exhibitors at COMEX 2012 compared to the previous show as well. I got in and out within half an hour – I’d planned my shopping list, checked out the floor plans and worked out the route of attack through the crowds and booths.

If you don’t have time to burn, you’ve just got to stay focused – like a horse wearing blinkers. Of course, if you’ve got plenty of time, you can let yourself loose and simply browse as you go. There is enough interesting stuff to keep a geek occupied for an entire day.

For me, I’m just happy to have stocked up the next three months supply of Epson inks and paper, and gotten an additional Seagate 2TB Backup Plus hard drive.
