XOSight at Web Summit 2019This Year we were the part of Web Summit ALPHA Team, where our technology was given a chance to pitch to the attendees and grow as an organization. There were talks and events going around all around the venue. CEO’s talking with the investors, pitching their idea to get some recognition. Some well settled in their place and some having meetings with potential clients. Everything happening under one roof and people from different places around the world sharing different cultures, ethics working together. We had the 3rd day to our booth at A 615 where we were given a platform to talk to attendees and gain potential clients. Talking to different startups who were also there to collaborate and share their idea with the world. With that, there were talks happening around the venue in different locations simultaneously and the schedule of all the venues holding what talk by which expert was all available on the Web Summit application in the grasp of our hands on our phones. We can look at the live feed and all the events happening all around us and who conducted it.
We could connect to the people around there by just scanning each other’s QR codes and all the necessary details will be available on the application. This was a huge advantage for the marketers to grow their network in a blink of an eye.
In the end, XOSight was able to connect to a large number of people and collaborate with different ventures around the world.
