Rupert Denoon, Regional Manager Crestron South Africa, comments “The opening of the latest Crestron Experience Centre in Johannesburg shows our commitment to our operations in the region. The facility is free of charge for our dealers to use and already it is a huge success with our dealers who are showing a keen interest in booking the facility for their existing and prospective customers.”
The 230m2 facility has a spacious hospitality area complete with its own outdoor balcony making it perfect for hosting all types of events. It has a training room and 10-seater boardroom with the rest of the space having an open plan design to give greater flexibility to its usage. Situated near the intersection of three major arterial roads – Mann Road, William Nicol Drive and the N1 freeway – and with plenty of parking available, it is ideally located to suit the needs of Crestrons’ dealers.
“South Africa is at the heart of the digital economy” comments Robin van Meeuwen, CEO Crestron EMEA. “Our increased investment in the region stems from the growing demand we are seeing across the whole range of solutions we are offering. The technologies in the Experience Centre will help our dealers stay head of the competition and thrive in an increasingly global marketplace.”
