Major Electronics Event
The Digital Consumer Channel (DCC MEA) is the major professional networking event for senior executives from the consumer electronics, digital device and ICT products retail channel in the Middle East & Africa (MEA) region.
Over 500 senior executives are descending on Fujairah’s Le Meridien Resort at the Al Aqah Beach today (18 May 2010).
They will come from countries such as Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, UAE and Yemen.
Launched in 2005 in Fujairah, the 6th annual DCC MEA will bring buyers from emerging markets into contact with vendors.
Billed as a ‘powerful business platform’ and a ‘must-attend’ event, DCC MEA is a networking function allowing vendors to meet face-to-face with existing and potential retail partners from across the region.
In these three days (18-20 May 2010) people will hold dozens of face-to-face meetings with vendors, chat with their peers from across the region and find out more about the latest industry trends and market data.
Why Every Year?
The MEA retail market for consumer electronics, digital devices and ICT products is growing at a fast rate. From mobile phones to laptops to LCD TVs and MP3 players, demand continues to grow as the region’s fast-growing and youth population spends ever-increasing amounts on these products.
Vendors attend to keep up to date and to discover the answers to questions like these:
1. How do I improve relationships with the leading retailers and retail distributors throughout the MEA region?
2. How do I find the correct partners in some of the more challenging countries in the MEA region without wasting time and money?
3. How can I optimise my sales and marketing strategy for the MEA region?
The three days is billed as an opportunity for 1: 1 meetings, networking, 60 minutes to convince, talk shows, the annual award ceremony and plenty of entertainment.
