Lexar Brings the World’s Fastest Memory Solutions to GITEX Africa 2024

Lexar is excited to bring the world’s fastest memory solutions to this year’s Gitex Africa 2024, the continent’s largest and most influential tech and start-up event, taking place from 29-31 May, in Marrakech, Morocco. Morocco is regarded as the gateway for technological transformation in Africa, making Lexar’s product lineup highly relevant to a diverse target audience including photographers, videographers and gamers. Lexar is currently the only memory solutions provider to offer massive storage capacities with blazing data transfer speeds, which professional photographers, videographers and gamers rely on while they capture images, record videos or play games.

Fissal Oubida, General Manager – Middle East, Africa, CIS and India, Lexar, said, “From a memory solutions market perspective, Morocco is ripe for disruption driven by a dynamic and tech-savvy population that is embracing latest technological innovations across sectors. Given this backdrop, Lexar is eagerly looking forward to the excellent platform that GITEX Africa presents for us to showcase some of our latest memory products that offer the perfect combination of high speed and massive capacities. Whether it’s to store photos, videos, music or important files and other data, we have products that address all these needs while being compatible with laptops, desktop computers, smartphones or tablets.”

“Gaming in particular is a segment Lexar is looking to tap into given its immense potential in Morocco and beyond. Young Moroccan consumers have begun to recognize the importance of reliable hardware that will also allow them to upgrade as the need arises, and portable data storage products are a vital part of this mix. As an industry, it is therefore equally important that we continue to innovate and address emerging market requirements,” added Oubida.
