Axis Communications, the world’s leading networking video and surveillance technology company, launched its Connect by Axis roadshow in South Africa. The series of events will showcase the company’s latest technologies, explore current trends, and engage with security industry stakeholders across the MEA region.
The first Connect by Axis event was held in Johannesburg, South Africa, at Langhams Lifestyle Estate in Fourways on 28 March. Hosted by the Axis team, attendees included members of the Axis partner ecosystem, Axis product end-users, industry associations and thought leaders, and members of the press.
Our decision to host the very first Connect by Axis roadshow in Johannesburg is a testament to our commitment to Africa and the tremendous potential we see in it. Axis aims to lead by example with our continued investment in the continent and its people, helping to build the cities of tomorrow and offer integrated, innovative security solutions that contribute to a smart, secure, and sustainable future.Ettiene van der Watt, Regional Director for Middle East and Africa, Axis
Serving as both a conference and technology showcase, Connect by Axis brings security industry stakeholders together to network, confront the industry’s most pressing challenges, and discover the latest security and surveillance solutions offered by Axis and its extensive family of trusted partners and distributors. Discussions were centred around cybersecurity, the role of AI, edge computing and analytics in security, critical infrastructure, smart cities, and sustainability.
With a focus on investment across Africa, we need to be asking the right questions and confronting the continent’s challenges head-on. We can achieve this by growing our network, establishing new relationships, and empowering enterprises to make the best security and networking decisions for themselves and the greater economy. That’s how we can all work together to help make Africa the powerhouse it has the potential to be.Ettiene van der Watt, Regional Director for Middle East and Africa, Axis
In addition to the conference, attendees could access the Transformation Zone, an exhibition space where they could experience and view demonstrations of the latest Axis products and partner solutions. Leading Axis Technology Integration Partners – including Milestone, Genetec, and FF Group – were on hand to answer questions and offer insight into their respective solutions.
Connect by Axis is the manifestation of our commitment to giving our partners an opportunity to meaningfully engage with us and participate in conversations that matter. We’ve taken our annual product showcases a step further by offering a bespoke exhibition experience that exposes people to the latest in security and network surveillance technology, and to how Axis is working to build a smart, secure, and sustainable future for all.Ettiene van der Watt, Regional Director for Middle East and Africa, Axis
