Attacking COMEX 2012

Friday, August 31st, 2012

A bit of planning can save you much meandering in the ocean of exhibitors at COMEX 2012. Here are three simple steps to make your bargain-hunting a breeze.

Do you find yourself zig-zagging acrros the hall and shuttling to-and-fro between floors?

Do you find yourself zig-zagging acrros the hall and shuttling to-and-fro between floors?

The weekend is here and many will be jam-packing Levels 3, 4 and 6 of Suntec Singapore to take advantage of promotions at COMEX 2012 – one of four major annual IT shows in Singapore.

Follow these three simple steps to make your bargain-hunting a breeze.

Step 1 – Online browsing of promotions

Check out the offers online. Even before hitting the venue, browse through the e-brochures and e-flyers to check out the discounts and freebies offered by exhibitors.

Click on this button to display ALL articles and promotions for COMEX 2012.

Check the list of promotions I have consolidated on tech4tea.com here.

You can click on the COMEX 2012 button at the top of the side-bar to the right of every page of tech4tea.com – it will show you all the articles related to COMEX 2012.

If you have specific gadgets you want to buy, you can do some targeted browsing/search.

Notice the buttons the main COMEX 2012 button? Pressing these buttons will lead you to a compilation of the relevant flyers/promotions for the category of gadgets that you’re looking for.

Drowning in a sea of irrelevant brochures? Do some targeted browsing instead.

Drowning in a sea of irrelevant brochures? Do some targeted browsing instead.

These include computers (desktops, all-in-ones, notebooks, ultrabooks, netbooks, tablets etc), printers (laser printers, inkjets, photo and label printers etc), cameras, audio products and accessories.

Hopefully, this will rescue you from drowning in the sea of brochures and flyers flying around the Web.

Step 2 – Plan your route

Based on the shopping list, tally with the floor plan for the show, and plan an expeditious route through the booths.

This will save you from having to zig-zag across the halls or between floors.

You may want to plan a route that includes competing exhibitors just to check whether they have revised their prices on-site to something better than what you’ve already decided based on online browsing.

Step 3 – Put on your blinkers or shop-till-you-drop

With your shopping list and route in hand, put on your blinkers and FOLLOW the plan. You should be able to get in and out and get what you want pretty quickly.

Of course, if you prefer to spend the entire day and empty your wallets, you can just go the free-and-easy way, and meander through the crowd as and where your fancy takes you.

Below are some useful resources for planning your COMEX 2012 shopping trip.

Visiting COMEX 2012 at Suntec Singapore

Friday, August 31st, 2012

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.

COMEX 2012 at Suntec Singapore, Levels 3, 4 & 6; from 30 August to 2 September, 12 noon to 9 pm; admission free.

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.

Check out Olympus promotions for its range of cameras. S$150 discount for its (super-)Tough TG-320 that was just launched this month (at S$348). You can get now get the waterproof (3m) and shockproof (1.5m) adventure camera for S$198.

日本相机制造商Olympus正参展COMEX 2012。其展览亭位于404展览厅,8205号展览亭。多款相机都有相当大的折扣。刚出炉的防岁水防撞Tough TG-320 由S$348 减至S$198,比较旧但还很实用的XZ-1由S$748减至S$498。Olympus 也出售录音机以及时髦的相机配件。” – 科技点心(微薄)

Another of my favourite is the XZ-1. It’s been around for a while now but its F1.8 bright lens is still alluring, especially with a discount of S$250 from S$748 to S$498, plus gifts worth S$175.

For those moving beyond compact cameras, check out the retro PEN-series and OM-D E-M5 mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.

Olympus also sells voice recorders and very fashionable accessories for its cameras.
