Hi guys,

thought I'd start a thread cause there are always so many IT fairs happening and it will be great if we cld all share if we see any.

I am a bit late but saw that there's a liang court renovation sale going on.
For us photography enthusiasts, there are some camera deals that I saw. If you're looking to upgrade, could check it out still.
Think that they are clearing stocks to make space for their renovation as what it says.. so could get some really great last min deals?
Anyway, saw it from this link:
Audio House Electronics, TV, Notebooks & Appliances Offers @ Liang Court 3 – 12 Aug 2013 | Singapore Promotions

If you guys know of any more deals around, please share!

You can get cheaper outside. As for the dual lens kit for the Nikon, I have no idea. But from the prices I see, its all the MSRP.

Usually what i would do is check out the online price of the item and then get quotes from shops like SLR Revolution, MS Color and etc. If the margin is not too much or very difficult to bring in, then would i consider getting local set. A bit moot but just yesterday was Harvey Norman show at Expo and Challenger member`s night at Funan. Other then waiting for those weekend IT shows, COMEX in Sep is just around the corner. Traditionally it is the biggest show of the year.

LOL what a joke. Please see the many many many many "comex/it fair/pc show" threads. It's a minor miracle to actually get a good deal there.

Many yrs ago still can find some look quite gd deals. Now the so call gd deal mostly just package in a way it look "good". Give freebies etc but price same or higher. Yet has to fight with crowd.
Some other electrical products other than camera, may still able to get some ok deal on those old models.

Just my view, those from Audio House I will not bother to visit.
10 over yrs ago already been mislead by their so call warehouse sales. The gd deal will often out of stock when u reached.

Those "good deals" are just bait for you to go there. Then they will try to push you to buy the more expensive stuff. When you enquire about the good deal, that deal is out of stock.

Haha, "bait-and-switch" will never die, it seems ;)

The free gifts? Normally bags, tripods and other accessories that will soon be listed on B&S. After battling the crowds at the fair, you then work trying to sell off the next-to-useless stuff, handling irritating enquiries...

Rental of stalls at these fairs is high. They need to make a profit or break even. Prices will not be in your favour.
A bunch of cheap and/or useless free gifts is used to tempt you to buy.
Service is not good. They have a crowd to serve and no time to spend explaining to you how the thing works, even if they know.
The temporary staff at the stalls are sometimes part-timers or students who cannot be expected to know the product well.

Person attending fair walks into stall exhibit area.
Part-time sales staff: Hi, can I help?
Person attending fair: Yes, can your product XXX work with YYY to do ZZZ?

Part-time sales staff, silent and dumbfounded stares blankly into outer space.......

They are only ready for customers to ask: Do you sell A?
Part-time sales staff: Yes, we sell A... or No, we don't have this.
