DISTREE Africa, held at the Safari Park Hotel, is highly attended by leaders across Africa's information technology and Consumer Electronics sector.

Among participants at the event that ends on Friday include senior executives from the top resellers, retailers and distributors.

Meanwhile, international firms aim to make the most of the expo to grow their businesses in the continent.
