Business Connexion (BCX) has announced that Cisco is now an anchor partner for its Technology of the Future exhibition; MyWorld of Tomorrow Africa (MWOT).
Hosted by BCX, MyWorld of Tomorrow will take place from 16 to 18 October 2014 at the Sandton Convention Centre. According to BCX, the platform promises to display the best in class of global technological innovation, by bringing together inventive and experiential technologies to the African continent. Cisco joins Samsung who are also anchor sponsors of the event.
Matthew Blewett, Business Connexion Chief Operations Officer, stated that: “We’re excited that Cisco has shown a belief in what we do. Our target audience has mainly been large enterprises, however, this event has a distinct customer and end-user focus, and we are confident it will bridge the gap between enterprise and the average man on the street.”
Den Sullivan, Head of Architectures and Enterprise, Emerging Markets, Cisco says: “Cisco understands the importance of making technology easily accessible to all and it is this vision that prompted us to participate as a partner of MyWorld of Tomorrow. We will be active participants at the event not only as exhibitors but also providing attendees with the latest information and overview about Cisco’s focussed strategy around the Internet of Everything (IoE) and how it will impact and drive all areas of business operations as well as the lives of citizen’s throughout Africa in the future.”
MyWorld of Tomorrow will feature five Zones in order to address the needs of all aspects of technology ranging from consumer technology to enterprise technology. The three day event will also feature a Conference Zone where the industry leaders will speak.
“Technology is no longer only accessible to a select few, it is a driving force in our daily lives. MyWorld of Tomorrow provides a diverse offering which makes technology available to various stakeholders and this convergence of markets is what distinguishes it from other events.” concludes Sullivan.
