CEO Weekends: Garmin calls on buyers in Southern Africa


The Africa team for Garmin Africa, a global leader in GPS satellite navigation, will host meetings with business partners, potential resellers and buyers in Zambia’s capital Lusaka from 26 to 29 August 2014.


The Garmin trade delegation seeks to meet and engage with potential resellers, buyers and business partners in the land development, fishing, agriculture, farming, navigation, oil and gas, surveying and health and wellness industries.

“Our Outdoor GPS tools or products are suitable to growing economies where infrastructure necessities are wide and planning of new roads, waypoints and boundaries are fundamental to the country’s expansion.

“Sustainable farming and the information required to plot out a field, calculating the area for planting seedlings or determining the land gradient of your farm to select the most suitable pump are merely some key uses of our products,” Garmin said in a statement.

The navigation devices come loaded with full map coverage for ten countries — Lesotho, Namibia, Angola, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Malawi, Swaziland, Mozambique and Zambia — with over 1.2 million km of roads and over 378,300 points of interest that allow people to locate petrol or gasoline stations, railways, restaurants, lodging and attractions.

“Our range of Fitness watches track time, speed, distance, calories, cadence and even heart rate, perfect for runners, cyclists and gym goers. Another exciting sector is the health and wellness market where our VivoFit wellness band tracks everyday activities, counts steps and monitors sleeping patters hence encouraging users to be more active,” stated Garmin.
