THE second edition of the PC Show @ Penang at the D’Piazza in Bayan Baru is expected to attract between 20,000 and 30,000 visitors, said its organisers.
Francis Wong, the chief executive officer of LSL Infotech Sdn Bhd which organised the event, said visitors would be spoilt for choice as there are 110 booths to hunt for bargains on computers, notebooks and accessories.
He said the three-day show, which ends tomorrow, was also aimed at creating a platform for Penang-based ICT sellers to promote and showcase their latest products to consumers.
The show was opened yesterday by Penang Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Abdul Malik Abul Kassim.
Wong said a collection drive for old CPUs, monitors and printers was being held throughout the event.
“This is in support of the Cleaner, Greener Penang initiative.
“We also want to assist the public in disposing of these items which are usually bulky,” he said.
He said 390 items were collected during the first PC Show at the Penang International Sports Arena in June.
“We are confident of collecting 500 items this time,” Wong said, adding that the items would be sent to certified e-waste recyclers.
A highlight of the event is a daily lucky draw which offers two Asus netbooks and an Ipad as grand prizes. No purchase is required to participate in the draw.
The show is open from 11am to 10pm today and tomorrow. Entry is free.
