Epson, a global technology leader, announces its return to the second edition of GITEX AFRICA Morocco, the largest technology exhibition on the African continent, to be held from May 29 to 31, 2024.

Building on this successful experience and the enthusiasm generated by its products and solutions, Epson is back in force this year to present its latest innovations and strengthen its partnerships in the region.

Recent Epson survey findings reveal that 74% of IT decision makers and users see a high demand for new scanning technology due to digitalisation, a growth that is leading to the global scanner market potentially reaching US$2.68 billion. Specifically designed for smaller offices, remote workers and eco-conscious organisations, Epson’s latest range of scanners addresses precisely the changing scanning needs as digitalisation is on the rise in the MENA region.
