Taxi Dispatch in the Tech World

The month of November saw T Dispatch appear at two of the best technology conferences in the world, rubbing shoulders with the innovators, investors and market leaders in apps, software and high tech. As well as picking up some ideas for future developments, we also moved a step further in getting our name out into the world.

Pioneers Festival, Vienna

Held in the Hofburg Imperial Palace, Pioneers Festival has to be one of the most grandiose backdrops possible for what is essentially a business exhibition. This year’s 2500 attendees were hosted within the chandelier-filled premises for two days, displaying pitches from some promising science and tech startups.

T Dispatch was lucky enough to be given a conference ticket by our friends at Twilio, who provided the Voice Over IP system in our original taxi dispatch system. Bryony, one of our founders, flew to Austria to represent us as the leading solution in fleet management.

Alongside entrepreneurs and experts on all things technical, there were some truly remarkable advancements. One of these was the automobile; the worlds most advanced flying car. Designed and built in Slovakia, the AeroMobil is a beautiful, sleek machine that needs just 200 metres to take off. Perhaps we’re still a little way off flying taxis, but this is what the future could look like.

Web Summit, Dublin

We were honoured to be invited to present on the Coca Cola stage at Web Summit in Dublin; it has fast become one of the largest tech meetups in the world. Having started 4 years ago with only 400 attendees, this year over 20,000 entrepreneurs and investors passed through its doors!

Bryony presented T Dispatch on stage in the first day, and used the rest of the time to connect to some well known names in the industry. Here she is with Mike Butcher, Editor of Tech Crunch:

Huge names in the tech world now consider Web Summit the best place to network. We met CEOs from Dropbox, Tech Stars and Waze, as well as top level executives from Google, Amazon and Twitter. Founders from Hailo and Bla Bla Car made an appearance, and we partied with Paypal / Braintree.

Overall, November was a pretty exciting month to be involved in technology!
