The Rivers State University, which is the foremost Science and Technology University in Nigeria hosted the just concluded Port-Harcourt Int’l Science and Technology Expo 2018 with the theme “beyond fossil fuel”. The Technology Expo had numerous local inventions on display. A perfect opportunity for participants to network and collaborate with great minds in the tech ecosystem.
As a major digital technology company in the ecosystem, we initiated a move to sponsor the conference. Thereby, ensuring our brand identity is included on the conference materials. At the conference, we strategically positioned our stand at the entrance of the arena to take advantage of the high volume of traffic entering or parading around the conference hall.
To further reinforce our presence, we opted to give a welcome address on the first day of the conference. While speaking, Mr. Bob (MD, BurnsleyTech) invited participants to experience our technologies on display. Most especially, the Multi-Service Digital Kiosk that help to automate processes such as the payment for utilities, identification of customers and the dispensing of SIM-CARD, LOYALTY CARD or other type of general-purpose cards in a self-service mode.
