This is according to Nicholas Travers, Director, Central and West Africa, Dell Technologies, who added that the ambitious project will “bridge the gap to cutting-edge technologies for millions of Nigerians.”

Dell Technologies is one of several partners to the project, spearheaded by TD Africa, a Sub-Sahara Africa-focused distributor of tech, lifestyle and solutions.

“This is a fantastic initiative by TD Africa, perhaps the first of its kind in the region and we are proud to be part of it. With expected visitors spanning CEOs, MDs and Heads of Technology from different sectors of the Nigerian economy, we believe the Tech Experience Centre will help reduce the decision making cycle and save huge costs and time of traveling to locations outside our continent to visit and experience these technologies at work.”

Travers added that the strategic nature of the Experience Centre will go a long way in helping Dell Technologies showcase its suite of cutting-edge technologies.

‘‘The launch of the Experience Centre will support the growth of technology in Nigeria and the West African region. Also, it provides a fantastic platform for Dell Technologies to showcase the very many technologies we offer,’’ he enthused.

On September 7, 2016, Dell and EMC joined forces Dell Technologies. An Enterprise and IT Transformation market leader, Dell Technologies unites technology leaders – Dell, EMC, Secureworks, Virtustream and VMware – in one company with the power to drive digital transformation, fueled by the desire to drive human progress through technology.

The Tech Experience Centre is scheduled to launch on Thursday, October 1st 2020, which co-incides with Nigeria’s 60th Independence Anniversary, with the launch streamed live online for the benefit of tech enthusiasts.
