Can you outline to our readers what products, solutions, or partnership agreements you’re announcing at GITEX Global 2021?
This Gitex we will be highlighting several new brand collaborations in Enterprise communications, we will also continue to build on our long-term partnership with Jabra, we have been appointed gold partners for “Huawei” Idea hubs (interactive whiteboards and panels), and as strategic partners for “Nexvoo” and “COOLPO” audio & video solutions. We are finalising a partnership with a software company that will complete our AV conference solution portfolio that we can showcase to our valued partners in the near future.
How important is it for your company to participate at GITEX Global 2021, in terms of getting to network face-to-face with your customers and partners?
The market dynamics have changed during the past 2 years and the new hybrid “Work from Home” norms and allowing us to use new methods of conducting our meetings, we will see this changing and look forward to working with our partners and customers with new AV enterprise solutions and at the same time have more interactive face-to-face meetings to educate our customer base.
In your opinion, what are the key technologies that will fuel new innovations in 2022?
As mentioned, before we will see hybrid audio and video categories growing being taken into consideration as many brands are emphasising safety protocols and social distancing.
