The Manager of South Asian Frontier at Google, Tania Aidrus has stated, “Pakistan’s mobile industry is really taking off with more and more people coming online and using their smartphones as their primary Internet device. It is absolutely the right time to hold this virtual shopping festival just before the traditional holiday and festive period of Eid-ul-Adha and what better way than to hold it completely online where the next wave of buyers will be congregating. With Internet penetration growing rapidly and the desire to purchase on the Internet increasing, we hope this initiative will bring more awareness and adoption of e-commerce in Pakistan.”

The event is a leapfrog step for the growth of E-Commerce in Pakistan where a majority of online consumers are even now turning to digital avenues to decide which devices to buy.
