Winners emerge @ TD’s Laptopmania

The first set of two winners have emerged in the Lagos edition of Technology Distributions (TD)’s Laptopmania promo, the star event of the firm’s 10th anniversary celebrations.
The event which held at Kez Auditorium, Technology House, Gbagada, Lagos, saw laptops being given out to winners, namely Joan Isemede, a student, and Ifeyinwa Umeh, a worker in Lagos.

Making the presentation, TD’s Executive Director, Marketing, Mrs. Chioma Chimere said that both winners were the first to win from the Lagos area and there would be winnings every week from all parts of the country.

She also said that Laptopmania was conceptualized to reward Nigerians in the six geo-political zones of the country by doling out 1,000 laptops in 10 weeks to mark the 10th anniversary of the firm.

“Laptopmania is proudly supported by the following international Information Technology (IT) brands, including Hewlett Packard (HP), Zinox, Toshiba, Acer, and Dell.

A press statement from TD, made available to ITRealms Online informed that this entails that laptops could be won from any of these international brands.

To qualify, Mrs. Chimere was quoted as saying that all a participant needs to do is simply text TD plus his or her name to 35056.

The Executive Director, Marketing, pointed out that the anniversary celebrations of Technology Distributions, has been deliberately launched on the platform of a decade of distinctive leadership, in the last quarter of 2009.

This, she said, would ensure that consumers have a digital Christmas and New Year celebrations.

“Characteristically the celebrations have been built around the customer with a view to give back to society in appreciation for the remarkable progress; rising quickly to number one that TD has made in 10 years of operations in Nigeria and the West African sub region,” Chimere said.

She further said that the anniversary celebrations have been planned to span a period of 10 weeks and three main events have been packaged to ensure that the consumer and trade benefits get to the agreed targets.

“These events include Laptopmania, TD Maths Quiz and a Gala Nite,” she declared.

Mrs. Chimere explained that Laptopmania, for instance, puts up 1,000 laptops for grabs by resellers and end users in interactive “Short Message Service (SMS) texts to a short code 35056.” The TD Maths quiz, she enlightened, is a bi-annual Maths competition designed to enhance the teaching and learning of Mathematics for pupils in Primary 4.

“TD considers Primary 4 as the class where a good foundation can be laid tor cognitive development. While the TD Gala Nite is an annual get together that unwinds pent up energies at the end of every year for the Management and Staff of TD and her resellers nationwide,” she said.

These events, according to her, would come with additional incentives, funfair and glamour to make the decade anniversary celebrations of TD a rewarding experience to Nigerians.
