In collaboration with Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), the Dubai World Trade Centre, has announced extended metro timings on Friday, 3 October.
The move aims to facilitate the large volume of visitors expected to attend the final weekend of GITEX Shopper 2014. The metro will run from 10am – 12:00 am on the Friday, adding an additional four hours to the transport service which usually does not start until 2pm.
Located at the very central Dubai World Trade Centre and just a minute's walk from the dedicated metro station, the region's largest consumer IT and electronics retail show has already seen thousands of visitors walk through the doors since it opened on Saturday 27 September.
Delighted by the increased convenience for exhibition-goers, Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), organiser of GITEX Shopper said, "We would like to thank the RTA for increasing metro hours on Friday. As more and more people are visiting GIITEX Shopper every year, Dubai Metro continues to provide visitors with a nice and easy journey as an alternative to driving." While many excited shoppers have been quick to snap up a number of incredible deals already, visitors planning to visit the one stop shop in coming days need not fear a shortage of products.
With over 100 top retailers including Emax, E-City, Jacky's, Jumbo Electronics, Plug Ins and Sharaf DG offering over 30,000 products, the unbeatable prices, promotions and giveaways are set to continue all week.
Grand prizes still up for grabs include a limited edition Honda Accord to be won each day, university scholarships, tickets to Spain to watch FC Barcelona live, DSLR cameras and so much more.
Ample parking at Dubai World Trade Centre also means no concern for drivers, while the wide variety of food and beverage outlets and multitude of interactive entertainment features add a fabulous festival atmosphere to the show.
