Next computer fair

Does someone know when and where will be the next fair selling computers and IT accessories? I'm looking to buy an ultra laptop such as the Dell XPS 13 9360 or similar ones.

Buy from US (HP Direct or Amazon), it's cheaper e.g. I'm looking at HP Spectre x360 i7, 4K (4K not available Singapore), about 700-800 SGD cheaper, as long as you have someone to bring it back.

A brand sponsored booth cost $120K for 4 days including built up structures.
Some brands spent up to $300k for those very elaborated booths + marketing.
The brands are funding most of the cost for the booth, resellers make profits by earning backend rebates when they hit sales target, and not from upfront immediate sales profits.
Ultimately, it is the venue owner (Suntec or Expo) that have guaranteed profits.

That is why now you seldom see show gals, elaborated booths, and also brand concept booths are also minimal. Everyone cutting cost.

In conclusion, you can still get good prices items, just need to make sure you do your due diligence to look hard and compare.
