‘‘The Tech Experience Centre is highly strategic to establish Nigeria as a relevant player in the global technology industry. 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,’’ he disclosed.

‘‘As of 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. This 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.’’

A global specialist in energy management and automation in over 100 countries, Schneider Electric is one of the tech brands that will occupy the Tech Experience Centre. Begat says it is an opportunity to bring the latest innovations to the doorsteps of millions of Nigerians.

‘‘This project is a wonderful opportunity for Schneider Electric to get close and personal with end-consumers wishing to experience our technology in a real-life setting. The broad scope of applications of our technology solutions, from Homes & Buildings to Industries and Infrastructure will certainly spike the interest of a wide range of visitors, from C-level to operators, looking to save costs and simplify operations for greater efficiency.

‘‘Schneider Electric is 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. We are also providing power protection equipment and high-end wiring devices.’’
