Event Wrap up!

BOZZY:BOZZY address the vital concern prevailing around traveling experiences on busses. They differentiate themselves as a wholistic one stop end to end service providersin the busses’ segment and guarantee a premium business class travel experience to all their customers.They are planning to tie up with credible private bus operators and other vendors to offer various amenities. Also their unique subscription model in this segment may prove to be a game changer.The team had done an extensive market research and is setting up a micro management team to offer unmatched customer experience soon.
AMAC - Air Modulating Air Conditioner:AMAC, an alternative product idea to the existing Air Conditioners, uses desiccant material to remove the humidity from air. The air is sent through a heat exchanger for further cooling down. Then evaporative cooling is done in the evaporative cooling section. The working is efficient and commercially applicable. Nowhere in the process there is any usage of harmful gases. The power consumption, maintenance costs and the installation costs are lower when compared to the normal AC. It is obvious to make this a B2B (Business to Business) model.Partnering with any established industries in this sector with the technology idea can help make it into a manufactured product.
MEETCEPTION:A location based local connectivity app that matches users in the same business event or conference (within a radius of 3km) looking for productive professional networking opportunities based on complementing interests. Meetception uses controlled viewing and anonymous chatting to help strangers break ice without compromising their identities. Users can choose to reveal their identity & location selectively to people they trust after chatting and are then encouraged to meet physically at Meetception Hubs
