Disc manufacturer targets larger orders from GITEX

First time exhibitor Lexpro Technologies is looking to find regional partners at this year's GITEX Technology Week.

First time exhibitor Lexpro Technologies is looking to find regional partners at this year's GITEX Technology Week.

Disc manufacturer Lexpro’s senior marketing manager, Kenny Kwok, says the response so far has been good. “This is our first year at GITEX. I’d heard a lot of great things about this technology show, and I am very impressed with it so far. You can be sure, we will certainly be back next year” he says.

Kwok believes that visitors to the IT super-show are being more than usually cautious with their critical purchasing decisions.

“A lot of people have visited the stand so far and we can see that they are very interested in our products,” says Kwok. “The problem is that people tend to be asking for the absolute minimum order necessary. They ask for just 1000 items, and of course larger orders are easier and more profitable for us to execute. I personally think this is a result of the global economic downturn that we’ve seen this year. It is affecting the prevailing mindset.”

Kwok says the Hong Kong-based company is eager to build its customer base in the Middle East.

“We make CDs, DVDs and Blue Ray discs,” he explains. “We also do recording so if someone gives us the content they want on disc, say a promotional or educational film for example, we can do that for them. Plus we are licensed by all the CD and DVD forums, so we can provide an authenticated, high quality product.

“Through GITEX, we want to let the Middle East market come to know Lexpro.”
