“I just had the best weekend ever fighting off crowds at the Singapore Expo!” said no one ever. That being said, there are some good reasons to visit the expo in the near future – namely, the cheap deals at the upcoming fairs.

Fairs tend to be hotbeds of deep discounts. If you’re looking to buy a brand new TV or DSLR, for instance, you will probably not be able to find better prices than you would at a good electronics fair. And even if you’re determined not to spend a single cent, some fairs are still worthwhile hitting up for the freebies, games and shows.

Here are 8 fairs that will be held at Expo in the coming months:

 

National Day Electronics Expo (20 to 22 Jul)


There’s only one reason to go to this patriotic themed expo: to buy electronic items at a discount. It’s going to be crowded and you might get elbowed out of the way by kiasu aunties and uncles rushing to buy the last flatscreen TV on offer. But for the money saved, it’s worth it.

When: 20 to 22 Jul, 11am to 9pm

What to expect: Laptops, TVs and household electronic items including fans, steam irons, hair dryers, stoves, etc.

 

Singapore Bike Show (17 to 19 Aug)

Whether they’re bikers or not, you can be sure that many guys will show up for bike and car shows to take pictures with the race queens. If you ply the roads on two wheels, you’re likely to find something of interest here. Pick up a new helmet, try your hand at the obstacle course or gawk at the stunt performances.

When: 17 to 19 Aug, 10:30am to 9:30pm

What to expect: Motorcycles, scooters, bicycles and e-scooters. And girls.

Exhibitors/booths: Bike brands, custom bikes, motorcycle and scooter models, bicycle and e-scooter models, bike tyres and accessories, engine oils and lubricants, helmets, gadgets and apparel, safety gear

Anything else? Indoor exhibition showcase, outdoor stunt performances, obstacle course ride, e-scooter tests, power sprinter challenge, bike forum, race queen contest, runway show, adventure workshop, lucky draw

 

NATAS Fair (17 to 19 Aug)

Even if you’re allergic to package tours, the annual (and exceedingly popular) NATAS travel fair might still be worth visiting, if only for the travel inspiration. Many organisations and companies pull out all the stops when promoting their destinations, so you can expect free food from various countries and goodies galore.

When: 17 to 19 Aug, 10am to 9:30pm

What to expect: Tour and travel packages, cruise packages, flights

Exhibitors/booths: Travel agents, airlines, cruise companies, national tourism organisations, banks

Anything else? Games, photo booths, contests

 

Grand Home Living (25 Aug to 2 Sep)

Moving into your BTO soon? Then you’re poised to take advantage of Grand Home Living. This huge furniture fair is ideal if you don’t want to fill your home with items from Ikea… or maybe just need a new mattress.

When: 25 Aug to 2 Sep, 12pm to 10pm

What to expect: Furniture such as sofas and dining tables, furnishing solutions such as curtains, flooring, carpets and wallpaper, home and décor items, mattresses, bedding and interior design services

Exhibitors/booths: Interior design firms, furniture and furnishing merchants, mattress brands

Anything else? Lucky draw

 

Singapore Female Festival (8 to 9 Sep)


The Singapore Female Festival tries to address women across all age groups and lifestyles, including students, entrepreneurs, singles, brides-and-mothers-to-be, and executives and managers. However, it is still relatively skewed towards beauty and fashion, so expect quite a few exhibitors along those lines.

When: 8 to 9 Sep, 10:30am to 9:30pm (Sat) / 8pm (Sun)

Exhibitors/booths: Fitness, cars, insurance, skincare, coffee, tea, makeup, haircare, sports apparel, beauty

Anything else? Local Kpop dance performance, talks, fitness classes (eg. zumba, Bollywood dance, etc), mannequin platform, workshops (eg. skincare, beauty), female biker flag-off, bridal fashion runway show, hair show

 

Expo Big Furniture Fair (22 to 30 Sep)


This is yet another furniture fair where you can pick up a new couch, hire an interior designer for your upcoming flat or buy a new chandelier to live out your fantasies of royalty.

When: 22 to 30 Sep, 12pm to 10pm

What to expect: Furniture such as sofas and dining tables, furnishing solutions such as curtains, flooring, carpets and wallpaper, home and décor items, mattresses, bedding and interior design services

Exhibitors/booths: Interior design firms, furniture and furnishing merchants, mattress brands

 

Furniture & ID Parade (20 to 29 Oct)

Are we starting to notice a pattern here? Thanks to Singapore’s high home ownership rate, furniture is constantly being purchased to adorn newly-bought flats. Here is yet another furniture and interior design fair where you can take your abode one step closer to becoming your dream home.

When: 20 to 29 Oct, 12pm to 10pm

What to expect: Furniture such as sofas and dining tables, furnishing solutions such as curtains, flooring, carpets and wallpaper, home and décor items, mattresses, bedding and interior design services

Exhibitors/booths: Interior design firms, furniture and furnishing merchants, mattress brands

 

Home Fantasy 2018 (17 to 25 Nov)

Yet another furniture fair, brought to you by the same guys who brought some of the previous furniture fairs above.

When: 17 to 25 Nov, 12pm to 10pm

What to expect: Furniture such as sofas and dining tables, furnishing solutions such as curtains, flooring, carpets and wallpaper, home and décor items, mattresses, bedding and interior design services

Exhibitors/booths: Interior design firms, furniture and furnishing merchants, mattress brands

In my previous life, I was a property lawyer who spent most of my time struggling to get out of bed or stuck in peak hour traffic. These days, as a freelance commercial writer, I work in bed, on the beach, in parks and at cafes, all while being really frugal. I like helping other people save money so they can stop living lives they don't like.
