The company said that it was having the promotional week “to increase awareness of the company and its products, reward loyal customers and explore potential business opportunities with key Ugandan partners.”

The week will see events begin in Kampala and then move to other destinations across the country, including rural areas in an effort to boost penetration of Samsung products for the entire East African country.

Corporate Marketing Manager for Samsung East Africa Tessa Caleb said in announcing the promotional week that the company “recognizes the importance of Africa as a rapidly growing and increasingly sophisticated market.”

She added that “the Samsung week will give the company the opportunity of interacting with its clients and getting feedback from business partners directly in a variety of forums across the country.”

He said Samsung “has the ability to tailor services to customer requirements across Africa.”
