TD Africa partners Schneider Electric to launch new tech experience center in Nigeria

NIGERIA – TD Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa’s leading technology, lifestyle and solutions distributor is set to launch a new Tech Experience Centre in Lagos, Nigeria in partnership with European multinational company, Schneider Electric.

The Tech Experience Centre is an unprecedented initiative which will bring together a number of tech giants under one roof in Lagos, Nigeria to create an immersive experience of the latest technologies in action.

Tech enthusiasts and other experts have identified the launch of the Tech Experience Centre as a potential boost to Nigeria’s technology narrative.

Schneider Electric noted that it will be providing the Smart Home Automation solution in the Centre, which will showcase in a real home setting how one can achieve comfort and peace of mind by monitoring and controlling appliances, lighting and other variables in their home from their smart devices.

Christophe Begat, Schneider Electric Managing Director for Anglophone West Africa described the Tech Center as a development that will firmly establish Nigeria as a major player in the global technology race.

‘‘There is undoubtedly a market for advanced technology solutions in Nigeria that is currently underserved. This is why Schneider Electric, as a global technology provider, was keen on partnering with TD on this project to showcase the potential of technology available right here in Nigeria.’’

Further, Begat referenced the capital flight that would be saved, while also talking up the multiplier effects the Tech Experience Centre would have in encouraging local participation and boosting the Nigerian economy.

To date, many Nigerians are left wanting when it comes to access to the latest technologies and find themselves having to travel abroad in order to find their desired products.

The Shneider Electric MD however notes that the new platform would not only encourage Nigerians to look further inwards into the offers available locally and contribute to growing the Nigerian economy, but also encourage other technology providers to up their game in the kind of offers they make available in Nigeria to cater for this market.
