Telecommunications giant Econet Wireless Saturday won the award for the best overall stand at this year’s Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) for its ultra-modern exhibition stand, which drew huge crowds.
The top award, called the ‘President’s Award for the Premier Zimbabwean Exhibit at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair’, was won by Econet at this year’s Trade Fair which was attended by over 500 direct exhibitors from 14 countries.
Econet CEO Dr Douglas Mboweni expressed his gratitude for the award, which was handed to the company’s representatives by President Mnangagwa, at the official opening ceremony of the ZITF Saturday. He said:
We are grateful that Econet has won this award in the face of serious and well respected competition among this year’s exhibitors, some of whom would have been worthy winners of the award.
He added that Econet dedicates the award to “our customers, whose support we never take for granted and without whom we would not be where we are today as a business”.
Mboweni said the award was the result of the diligence and teamwork demonstrated by Econet staff and management, along with their dedication and commitment.
Dr Mboweni said Econet, which has consistently participated at the ZITF over the years, was committed to continuing to invest in the country’s telecoms infrastructure and technology in order to improve the customer experience and help the country become a competitive digital economy in the shortest possible time.
Econet’s general manager for marketing, Mrs Tariro Muchena, who received the award along with some Econet colleagues, said the recognition is a motivation for the company to do even more to continuously improve the customer experience.
