TD Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa’s biggest technology, lifestyle and solutions distributor and one of the companies in the Zinox Group, is set to launch a Tech Experience Centre, an ambitious technology project that is widely expected to bridge the gap to cutting-edge technology for millions of Nigerians.

The first of its kind in Africa, the experience centre will house global tech giants such as Cisco, Dell EMC, HP, Microsoft, Samsung, Philips, Bosch, Schneider Electric and Zinox, among others, under its roof, to create a truly immersive and rich experience of latest world technologies.

Set to launch on Thursday, October 1st 2020, Nigeria’s 60th Independence day, the opening will stream 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.

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 organisations, government establishments and individuals money or scarce foreign exchange expended on these trips.

TD Africa says the launch of the Tech Experience Centre is one of the greatest achievements in Nigeria’s technology history and a huge confidence-booster 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.

The project cited within the Yudala Heights on Idowu Martins Street, Victoria Island will be commissioned by Isa Ali Pantami, Nigeria’s minister of communications and digital economy. Stakeholders from the technology sector, corporate leaders and other dignitaries are expected to attend the launch.

The facility plans to house a number of globally-renowned international tech giants and will provide real time information, support and expertise to visitors and other prospective customers, eager to be acquainted with the technologies on ground.
