So here we are coming up on my favorite Expo in Kuwait, the 31st International Information Technology, Office Systems and Communications Exhibition otherwise known as Info Connect 2012. I have to say that I really don't know how often they have exhibitions in the Mishref Fairgrounds, mostly because a lot of them don't interest me that much but also because I don't see them advertised as much. But this one is different in that you can't read a Blog in Kuwait without reading about Info Connect every year.
Now I think that mostly has to do with the fact that most people with Blogs are tech savvy, and Info Connect is all about technology or things somehow connected to technology. This is the time where most people renew their Internet, Telephone or Satellite TV subscriptions, and that's because normally the companies offering those services are offering above average discounts. Rumor has it however that because of last year's Internet protests here in Kuwait and the already low prices of Internet packages, they will not be lower than what they currently are but certainly lower than what they were last year during last year's Info Connect and the subsequent months.
