KIT digital gathers 53 key team members in Cairo for our 2nd Biannual Sales Summit
As the KIT digital global business has expanded in the last 6 months, there has been an even greater need to sit in the same room and compare notes from the IP-video space around the world. And so late last month we held our second biannual sales summit in Cairo. We chose Cairo because we have a sizable (20+ professionals) operation there, yet it’s a place few of our team members have visited. The opportunity to meet and spend time with the KIT Cairo team members was invaluable. The summit focused on the next phase of the IP-video revolution and the ongoing integration of our global sales and customer service teams.
For me, it was a series of firsts! Recently joining the KIT digital team as Global Communications Manager (my first day on the job actually being the first day of the summit), it was great to meet such a passionate group of people, all of whom have a perspective around the power of IP-video as a business tool and a communication medium.
During the four days of then event, sessions were held around the integration of sales teams, sharing more about the work we do with clients globally, and of course significant time was spent discussing how the KIT digital VX Platform can be used to drive value for customers in our five industry verticals.
In the midst of all the hard work, we managed to spend some time exploring Cairo. A light and sound show at the Giza Pyramids, an Egyptian themed backyard BBQ (including Belly dancers- Pictures NSFW) and naturally, a dinner cruise on the Nile River – were all highlights.
One of the highlights of the summit was a session with Andy Steward, CTO at KIT digital. Andy formally introduced the sales team to VX2 (working name) – our soon to be launched next generation IP-video management platform. Utilizing the skills and assets we have developed and acquired over the last several years, our team is building out VX2 as the first truly end-to-end, three-screen platform in our space. Watch this space for much more on the subject as development continues.
The KIT team left the conference with a much greater insight into our work and the opportunities that exist around the globe plus a real preparedness to drive cutting–edge IP-video implementations in 2010.
Thanks to everyone for making this conference a great success and we are already looking forward to next year’s event!
