Second eos.ticketingSummit in Hamburg’s HafenCity
On 17th and 18th November 2016, Hamburg became the venue for the second eos.ticketingSummit. The 127 participants were not only able to enjoy a variety of interesting and informative presentations but could also enjoy the hanseatic flair of the Elbarkaden event location in Hamburg’s famous HafenCity.
After the positive feedback we received for our first eos.ticketingSummit in November last year, eos.uptrade provided its guests this year with a 2-day multimedia show by hosting all presentations on a TV and movie-themed stage.
At the 2016 eos.ticketingSummit, eos.uptrade’s focus was on presenting innovations for different target groups as well as the new eos.ticketingSuite. The company presented, for example, new online sales tools for kids and teenagers as well as a variety of solutions from mobile ticketing to mobile service center applications.
One main focal point was the presentation of the smartphone-based Check-In/Be-Out solution. Thanks to eos.uptrade’s event app, the participants were able to try out this CIBO solution for themselves on their way to the networking dinner.
In addition to eos.uptrade’s own presentations, the event also featured numerous external speakers who also presented new solutions and reported on their practical experiences.
Lars Küttner of the Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH, for example, presented his company’s experiences from their development cooperation with eos.ticketingSuite. Cornelia Müller-Nonnenmann of the Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG gave a presentation on her company’s basic strategy regarding online sales.
In addition to these new and innovative solutions, the participants were also able to gain an insight into eos.uptrade’s agile working methods, test automation and the involvement of customers in the development process.
An exciting expert panel rounded off the second eos.ticketingSummit:
Moderator Gerhard Probst (Probst & Consorten) discussed the future role of public transport in light of a changing mobility market with “talk show guests” José Luis Castrillo (VRR), Dr. Martell Beck (BVG), Dirk Bestmann (HOCHBAHN) and Norbert Specht (MVV).
eos.uptrade would like to thank all participants, guests and colleagues for this very successful event!
