- A competition called Tech Makeover, sponsored by Intel and Razer where RM5,000 [US$1,559] worth of gadgets will be given away to the person with the most creative reason he/she deserves to win the prizes.
Participants would need to submit their video and shared on DLE Facebook page at /PIKOMDLE. The winner will win a handphone, laptop, tablet and gaming equipment.

- Thirdly, technology companies will be showing their key technological highlights from telecommunications to devices and home appliances. The companies include Lenovo, DiGi, Asia Pay, Samsung, Philips, and LG.
"Now in its 5th year, Digital Lifestyle Expo has established itself as the 'Revolutionary Platform for Digital World' that brings together the latest technology demonstrating the most up-to-date tech-life related products and services," he said..
"At PIKOM, we are constantly looking at ways to bridge technology to life. The PIKOM Fair (was PC Fair) has become the household name for cash and carry on ICT products. On the other hand, DLE is designed to play the role of a platform to sneak peek on the future technology.," said Cheah.
"This year, the DLE is more than just a technology exhibition," he said. "We are bringing in social elements such as the Tech Makeover competition; the learning element with the tech speakers forum and IT career exhibition; and the current issues element with GST solutions, government e-services, smart home concept, etc. With a track record of attracting more than 30,000 visitors, we are set to bring a revolutionary tech experience to the consumers."
