20.06.2017 – Demo Day
The event was held at City Labs 1.0, with all projects outlining the four key theme areas – Travel & Transport, Health & Social Care, Energy & Environment, and Culture & Public Realm. More than 200 people came to see the ideas that will shape the future of Manchester becoming a smart city including the leader of manchester city council Sir Richard Leese’s who reflected on the project stating.
“We might not be the biggest city,” he said, “but in Manchester we know that if you can’t compete on scale then it means you need to be smart – and that is what City Verve is all about.”
During the day we presented live demos using Alexa showing the smart and quick response that Qbots can give.
The day ended with a showcase. Every company had the chance to show in 5 minutes what they have achieved in the past 8 weeks and their plans for the future. Vijay did our presentation and was able to communicate how much we had accomplished and how we plan to carry on at the same rate.
After the event we were able to unwind and relax after the intense 8 weeks and network with the other companies that had also put the hard work into making CityVerve Open Innovation a successful program.
