Middle East Canon partners are currently in Tunisia gaining insight into the company's partner strategy and information on forthcoming products.

The five-day partner conference, which began earlier this week, has already seen executives from the imaging and printer manufacturer explain plans for its consumer imaging and business solutions divisions along with offering an update of current sales performances and Canon's share of the market.

"Canon is proud to hold our annual conference for partners in the Middle East and Africa this year in Tunisia, which is an increasingly important market to us. The African region is growing in importance every year, and last year we saw very strong growth figures for our sales in the region," proclaimed Bertil Widmark, managing director at Canon Middle East.

Canon insists that the symposium is intended to help its regional partners garner valuable understanding of the development of new channels and other advancement plans it has for North Africa it also serves as an opportunity for them to meet with Canon representatives.

"We hope that this year's conference will help our regional partners to position themselves to take advantage of the emerging opportunities within this rapidly expanding market," concluded Widmark.
