Opas Cherdpuht, chief executive of event organiser M Vision, said about 100 telecommunications operators, mobile phone producers and retailers – such as Samsung, Huawei, Sony, Nokia, Wiko, DTAC, IT City and Jaymart – are represented at the event. It opened at Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre yesterday.
Opas said the expo comprises four zones, including for mobile phone and smartphone promotions, for cameras and for electric vehicles (EV), to showcase the advent of EV technology in the country. The company also plans to hold an EV event in the third quarter of this year.
Opas said that the expo will help mobile phone manufacturers and related businesses create promotional campaigns in order to boost the flat rate of growth in the smartphone and mobile devices market.
“I think that the smartphone and mobile phone market in the country is heading for flat growth this year, as mobile phone manufacturers have not announced many new flagship smartphones in this period,” Opas said.
However, South Korean technology giant Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy A8/A8+ (2018). The smartphone features all-in-one shooting in high-resolution dual front cameras, said Wichai Pornpratang, vice president of organisation, telecommunication and IT companies Thailand, Samsung Electronics.
Dusit Sukhumvithaya, co-chief executive officer of Jaymart Mobile, said that the company has joined with partners such as Samsung, iPhone, Huawei, Nokia and Mi to offer lifetime warranties on smartphone purchases.
The offer applies for purchases at Jaymart shops and through the company’s website, until April 30.
Dusit said the move would boost the confidence of customers making purchases from its marketing channels.
