A date and venue for Consumer Electronics Live – the country’s biggest gadget show and our very own version of CES – has recently been announced. The show will be held on November 13 to 15, 2009 at the World Trade Center, Halls A-C. If you’re a gadget lover – and why else are you reading this site? – mark the dates NOW!

This year, CEL Manila’s second, the show will have a greater focus on not just showcasing the latest and greatest gadgets, but on buying them as well.

According to Gerard de Guzman, General Manager of Summit Live, organizers of CEL, "What makes CEL Manila special is the gathering of large and small brands not just to exhibit their products but to sell them as well. I think there is nothing worse for a techie than seeing and salivating over a device on display but then you can’t buy it right there and then. With CEL Manila exhibitors putting together special promos just for the 3 day event, techies are sure to find devices at terrific values."

Techie.com.ph will be there in full force to cover all the gadgets on display in the 9,000 square meter floor space. Expect videos and exclusives – watch this space!
