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.
