Samsung Electronics Levant, a global leader in digital media and convergence technologies and the winner of innovation in the world of electronics, sponsored the annual anniversary of Amman Tech Tuesdays, which was held May 3, 2011 at Zara Expo.
The most outstanding part of this technical event is the Samsung sponsorship of a 3D project presented by one of the students. There was also a special area for the Samsung booth that displayed Samsung IT products including NPC and LCD screens. Additionally, Samsung distributed Tick Tocks to all visitors of the booth and also gave the opportunity for people who tried the NPC to talk about their experience.
