INGSOFTWARE had a very busy period in the past few months filled with challenging and innovative growth opportunities. In accordance with that and our business development plans, we decided to be in the heart of the happenings and visit several conferences and B2B meetings all around Europe dedicated to various sectors of IT industry.
The results are strengthened business relationships with existing clients, alongside with some exciting new opportunities, possible partnerships and projects to come.
In addition to B2B Meetup in Dublin, which was held in October 2016 (link), here are our impressions and experience from a few other events:
Lindholmen Software Development Day - Lindholmen Science Park, Gothenburg
OCTOBER 28th, 2016 - Technology
The Lindholmen Software Development Day is an assembly for collaboration with the aim to bring future success in software development to Sweden. The event offered cutting edge seminars and a meeting place for industry, academia and IT society. The conference attracted more than 600 participant companies, so it was an inspiring arena for cross-industry knowledge sharing in software development.
In accordance with our plans to expand our services and increase activities in Scandinavian region, this was a great opportunity to meet people, present our expertise, learn about the local business culture and share experience with other IT experts.
We met numerous CXO’s, innovators, investors, researchers, business developers and entrepreneurs from the field, so it was a great place for linking and networking.
ICT in Agribusiness Conference - Aleksandar Palace Hotel, Skopje
NOVEMBER 23-24th, 2016 - Technology
This conference was organized with the aim to gather the companies from both the ICT and Agribusiness sector. The idea was to present the current tendencies in both of these two areas, identify opportunities for cooperation, exchange expertise and best practices, as well as to facilitate the matchmaking and encourage mutual collaboration.
Key companies of both industries were there, accompanied by the investors and representatives from the Government and several Universities. The Conference presented success stories, pitches, booths, existing products and solutions, as well as demo presentations, so real impression of the existing cooperation between the sectors is provided at a glance.
As a company with expertise in AgriTech (www.farm-at.com), we attended B2B meetings between tech companies and some of the biggest farmers from the region, including eminent agriculture experts.
Here we exchanged our ideas, introduced our product and learned about additional everyday problems of the dairy farmers, which we will try to resolve with our modern and sophisticated web platform.
