Sanwo Technologies Limited, the trusttech firm devoted to enabling risk-free online transactions across Africa, prominently featured as one of the key sponsors of the recently concluded Ibadan Tech Expo, held at The International Conference Center, Agbowo, Ibadan on Saturday, September 9th, 2023.

The audience received a detailed understanding of how each product functions, and how individuals and businesses could leverage Sanwo to ensure their transactions are secure and their businesses managed seamlessly.
One of the event’s highlights was Sanwo’s exhibition booth. Beyond just being a space for interactions and queries, the booth turned into a hub of excitement as Sanwo deployed a gamified marketing feature on its web app. This innovative approach ensured that attendees didn’t leave empty-handed, with hundreds walking away with Sanwo-branded merchandise, further establishing the brand’s presence and commitment to the tech community.
