Tech Giants Ready to Un­veil Nige­ria’s Tech Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre

Nigeria Communications Week - - News - Bankole Orija

TD Africa, Sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa’s big­gest tech, life­style and so­lu­tions dis­trib­u­tor and one of the com­pa­nies in the Zi­nox Group, is set to launch Tech Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, a revo­lu­tion­ary tech pro­ject.

Tech Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, an am­bi­tious tech­nol­ogy pro­ject that is widely ex­pected to bridge the gap to cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy for mil­lions of Nige­ri­ans.

This is first time in the his­tory of man and tech­nol­ogy that global tech giants such as Cisco, Dell EMC, HP, Mi­crosoft, Samsung, Philips, Bosch, Sch­nei­der Elec­tric and Zi­nox, among oth­ers, are com­ing to­gether to es­tab­lish their re­spec­tive ex­pe­ri­ence cen­tres un­der one roof to cre­ate a truly im­mer­sive and rich ex­pe­ri­ence of lat­est tech­nolo­gies in ac­tion.

Tech Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, the first of its kind in Africa, is set for launch on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 1st 2020, in­ci­den­tally the oc­ca­sion of Nige­ria’s 60th-In­de­pen­dence An­niver­sary by 12noon, with the launch streamed live on­line for the ben­e­fit of tech en­thu­si­asts.

The Tech Cen­tre is widely ex­pected to boost Nige­ria’s rel­e­vance in the global tech­nol­ogy race and shore up the coun­try’s march to tech­nol­ogy in­de­pen­dence.

For the first time, Nige­ria will play host to the lat­est global tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing those not nor­mally avail­able in Africa, of­fer­ing all classes of visi­tors a first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence of new gad­gets, so­lu­tions and in­fra­struc­ture that would have pre­vi­ously re­quired a visit abroad, thereby sav­ing cor­po­rate or­ga­ni­za­tions, gov­ern­ment es­tab­lish­ments and in­di­vid­u­als money or scarce for­eign ex­change ex­pended on th­ese trips.

Also rais­ing the ex­cite­ment for the launch of the Tech Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre is its sta­tus as one of the great­est achieve­ments in Nige­ria’s tech­nol­ogy his­tory and a huge con­fi­dence­booster in the Nige­rian econ­omy, de­spite the chal­lenges faced by the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion which has shown greater com­mit­ment in lever­ag­ing tech­nol­ogy in build­ing a dig­i­tal econ­omy for all Nige­ri­ans.

Mean­while, the aus­pi­cious pro­ject cited within the pres­ti­gious Yu­dala Heights on Idowu Martins Street, Vic­to­ria Is­land will be flagged off by Dr. Isa Ali Pan­tami, min­is­ter of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Dig­i­tal Econ­omy, who is ex­pected in La­gos for the of­fi­cial com­mis­sion­ing of the cen­tre.

Also ex­pected to at­tend the launch are stake­hold­ers from the tech­nol­ogy sec­tor, cor­po­rate egg-heads and other dig­ni­taries, not ex­ceed­ing 50 in line with the cur­rent guide­lines on pub­lic gath­er­ings oc­ca­sioned by the COVID-19 pan­demic.

Nev­er­the­less, the event will be streamed live to mil­lions of Nige­ri­ans via var­i­ous dig­i­tal chan­nels.

Al­ready, a num­ber of glob­ally-renowned in­ter­na­tional tech giants, all of whom will be housed within the Tech Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, will pro­vide real time in­for­ma­tion, sup­port and ex­per­tise to visi­tors and other prospec­tive cus­tomers, ea­ger to be ac­quainted with the tech­nolo­gies on ground.
