25 Years of The PC Show

By  |  0 Comments

When you head down to the Singapore Expo this weekend (4-7th June), you’ll be attending a PC Show that is celebrating its 25th year.

The PC Show is one of Singapore’s most well-known annual events, mostly for its plethora of offers for the latest gadgets as well as off-season devices like TVs. This year is no different, and you can expect the familiar deluge of flyers bearing attractive deals when you enter Halls 5 and 6 of the Singapore Expo.

There might not be any fanfare to mark the occasion, but there’s still a lucky draw you can take part in; so you can still consider it a mini celebration of sorts. For every S$100 that you spend at the show, you get one shot to win the grand prize of a Hyundai Santa Fe, sponsored by Komoco Motors.

Know Your Tech

The PC Show 2015 also sees the return of the “Know Your Tech” exhibition zone, a strictly no-sales experiential zone. One highlight of the zone would be Intel’s RealSense Technology, a cutting-edge motion detection engine that can detect motion as a form of input, as well as enable your device to scan objects in 3D, as well as take measurements via the camera (for supported devices). Several desktops, notebooks, and a tablet equipped with RealSense will be available at the PC Show with special prices or bundled offers: the Lenovo B50-30 (S$1,699), Dell Inspiron 23 7000 (S$2,099), Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (S$1,599), Dell Venue 8 7000 (S$659), and the Acer Aspire VN7-791G (S$2,398).

You will also have the chance to try out Samsung’s new Gear Innovator Edition for S6 and S6 edge at the zone. Samsung’s virtual reality headwear shows the latest developments in personal reality gear; one that’s not insanely priced, that is. If you like it so much, the Gear Innovator Edition is available at the PC Show for S$298, with a S$50 discount with every purchase of the S6 or the S6 edge.

Mobile and Broadband

If you’re in the business of getting or renewing your broadband and mobile plans, all parties are at the show this time: Singtel, Starhub, M1, MyRepublic and ViewQwest have offers aplenty to entice you to pick up a plan, or bait you enough to switch camps. From S$39 1Gbps plans from M1 to Singtel’s free 50GB local data (10GB per month for five months) for combination plans, or ViewQwest’s free six month subscription for their unprecedented 2Gbps plan, the outcome of the intense competition is to your benefit.


Aside from the usual plethora of tech gadgets, there’re some less-than-usual devices you can check out, provided you know where to look. Smart Home (booth 5080) sells home automation devices ranging from smart locks, air conditioner, lights, to video-enabled doorbells. Agitec Guard (booth 5075) meanwhile, is launching Singapore’s first GPS phone watch for children that can locate its wearer via GPS and GSM; and it can receive phone calls as well as notify you if your child falls. (S$159.90, 10% off at show)


The PC Show 2015 runs from 4-7 Jun3 2015 and is held at the Singapore Expo Halls 5 & 6, from 12pm to 9pm daily.
