Redington is participating at the second edition of GITEX Africa, the continent’s largest all-inclusive tech event, taking place from 29th to 31st May in Morocco, under the theme of ‘Synergizing the Tech Ecosystem’.

Redington has empowered transformation journeys over the years and has been instrumental in accelerating the digitalisation of the regional landscape.

With a direct presence in 19 African countries and continent-wide reach through channel partners, Redington is well-positioned to become a one-stop shop for all things technology in Africa.

The distributor’s extensive portfolio, spanning from endpoints to mobility solutions, cloud services, and all facets of technology in between, makes it a comprehensive provider. This strategic approach allows them to cater to a wide range of customer needs within the African market.

Recently, Redington has also forayed into the South African market, signifying a milestone in the company’s growth journey, allowing it to bring its expertise and cutting-edge technology solutions and services portfolio to the vibrant South African partner community.

Redington’s strong physical presence and network of partners across Africa position it well to take advantage of the continent’s growing economy, youthful population, and growing technology adoption.

The past 12 months have been eventful for Redington – it has hosted over 600 events, connecting over 3900 partners and more than 1500 customers and tech vendors across the region.

Redington’s flagship channel event – ‘The Pitch Room’ expanded to over 10 countries connecting ISV alliances and channel community, fostering an ecosystem for innovative solutions. ‘The Vertical’, another Redington IP event, hosted across 9 countries, focused on industry-specific digital outcomes and accelerated digital transformation for 300 plus end-customers across the region.

Today the focus for the company is to bring together the ecosystem and find synergies that can shape the digital tomorrow. Collaboration is the key to unlocking the true potential of digital transformation, shaping a future where technology empowers progress across the region.

Redington is set to unveil pioneering technologies, an extensive services portfolio, and exclusive collaborations at GITEX Africa 2024. These offerings are designed to assist organisations across the continent in achieving business goals, addressing critical challenges, and expediting digital transformation.

Attendees will have an opportunity to network with cybersecurity experts from Redington’s managed security services distributor practice – DigiGlass.

They will learn all about how AI can empower their boardroom objectives and fast-track their missions to be digital enterprises through Microsoft’s Co-Pilot.

Technogram by Redington, the distributor’s podcast channel will feature channel partners, vendors, and customers, from the venue, examining the future of the digital tomorrow.
