‘‘HP is in the business of making life better for everyone, everywhere, hence revolutionary innovation in Health care, Security, Gaming and Printing Solutions will be showcased in the Technology Centre. Cutting- edge, sustainable, diverse and relevant innovation in technology.
‘‘This brings technology closer to home. I believe that the ambience of the Tech Centre will cater to a wide spectrum of users: CEO’s, Government officials, entrepreneurs, tech enthusiasts, students, gamers etc. It will be the crucial meeting point of people and technology. Our wide spectrum of products and solutions will cater to all demographics – from first time users to specialists, professionals, gamers to moviemakers, work or play,’’ she said.
The revolutionary Tech Experience Centre, the first of its kind in Africa, will launch on Thursday, October 1st 2020. It coincides with Nigeria’s 60th Independence Anniversary; thus, it will be streamed online by 12 noon for the benefit of tech enthusiasts.
Expected to officially commission the centre is the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami.
The Tech Centre is widely expected to boost Nigeria’s relevance in the global technology race. Also, it will likely 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. It will offer all classes of visitors a first-hand experience of new gadgets, solutions and infrastructure.
Before, one would have needed a visit abroad to get hands on these gadgets. However, they can now save corporate organisations, government establishments and individuals money or scarce foreign exchange expended on these trips.
