Organisers of the Gadget Show are extending this year's event to cater for 15,000 more visitors.

Organiser Upper Street Events is anticipating 120,000 people at the exhibition, taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from 11-15 April. Last year’s event saw 104,759 people through the doors.

An additional 2,000 seats have been allocated in the Super Theatre and two new zones based on music and outdoor pursuits have been added.

The exhibition is based on the popular Channel Five TV show and gives visitors the chance to experience, test and buy the latest gadgets and technology.

Friday and weekend tickets have already sold out.

Matt Hodgins, head of event at Upper Street Events said 2012 promises to be the best yet.

"We’re really pleased about how the event has shaped up for 2012, with a bigger variety of features and some great exhibitors like Philips, Dell, Denon and Canon making their debuts this year.
