The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is organising its annual IT Fair, Digital Connection 2006, from now till 24 October 2006. Digital Connection 2006 was officially launched by CAAS’ Director- General, Mr Wong Woon Liong. Besides a road show showcasing the latest photographic equipment, computers and electronic products, Digital Connection 2006 will also feature a gameshow called ‘Digi5’, an ‘Amazing Half Price Deals’ promotion and a free video message recording service – ‘Hello @ Changi – Smile’ .
“Since we first launched the IT Fair in 2002, we have seen a phenomenal 400% increase in sales from the event, with sales for last year’s show at Changi Airport surpassing 2004’s by more than 20%. IT and electronics are now ranked 4th in terms of total sales at Changi Airport and these products are especially popular among European, Australian and Indian travellers. Every year, CAAS aims to introduce new concepts to the IT Fair to add variety and interest to the shopping experience for our travellers. This year, the ‘Digi5’ gameshow offers our travellers the chance to purchase their dream digital products at very low prices, representing savings of up to more than 90%. We hope that Digital Connection 2006 will spur travellers to take this value-for-money opportunity to shop for IT and electronic products at Changi Airport,” said Mr Wong Woon Liong.
Travellers visiting the IT Fair will also be able to stay connected with families and friends through video messaging. Travellers will have 15 seconds to record their messages on video and will be filmed by the IT promoter at the airport’s event site. The recorded video messages will be uploaded on Changi Airport’s website. An e-mail containing the link will be sent to the traveller and three other e-mail addresses of the traveller’s choice to enable them download the video message. The video messages will be available online until 23 November 2006.
