“We are thrilled to launch R-tour in Kenya that serves as a very significant market to us. We have seen
some exceptionally brilliant photographers come out of Kenya and some equally breath-taking and nerve-wracking photographs take birth from the WRC Safari Rally. Kenya is swiftly making its mark in sports and wildlife photography with the market evolving at a rapid pace,” commented Amine Djouahra, Director of Sales and Marketing,Canon Central and North Africa.
“The R-tour gives us an opportunity to get closer to our customers, photographers, partners, fans and enthusiast who want to deep-dive into the world of photography but either lack resources or opportunities. Through the R-tour, we want to ensure that we create these micro-opportunities for all those interested in learning about Canon, its products or even photography in general that they can leverage on. For me, R-tour stands for building relations and that’s what we are here for in Kenya,” he added.
Canon envisions to continue engaging with end-users through a series of events including Photo walks,
Masterclasses, Competitions, and Generation R Community events among others.
