IEIC 2015 - Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry

FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation, FICCI is the voice of India's business and industry. FICCI draws its membership from the corporate sector, both private and public, including SMEs and MNCs; and enjoys an indirect membership of over 250,000 companies from various regional chambers of commerce.

From the 14th – 15th January, the India Skills and Education Conference is taking place in London. The India EIC conference will be bringing together the technology, skills and education communities within the UK, India and other countries to allow open discussion of the possibilities and challenges for collaboration. 

The conference will be exploring a wide range of points such as:

how innovations in technology, curriculum and financing could help improve educational outcomes
how partnerships can be built between employers and educators
assisting Indian and international education businesses looking to expand and grow; and
how innovative financing and international education partnerships could address global education challenges

The best part of this was that skignz found out that we have been invited to speak and exhibit at the Microsoft sponsored IEIC EduTech conference 2015.
This was great for us to find out and be provided with the great opportunity of demonstrating our technology to all who attend and being a part of the whole EduTech conference event.  

After being invited to speak at the event, skignz managed to negotiate a reduced price of only £240 per delegate to attend the event. If you want to exhibit then we believe there is a very small number of spaces left.

At the two day event, there will be around 300 top end prominent delegates relating to Technology and Education within India. If you are from the Digital City Community who have an EduTech focus, then we believe that it would be a great opportunity for individuals/companies from the community to attend. 

It will provide you with an ideal networking opportunity, and allow you the chance to experience wisdom and enhance your own thoughts from each speaker at the event and all delegates, while getting to know about new technology and improvements along the way.

skignz is 'Born in the USA'

skignz are delighted to announce that we have now opened an office in the US, not just anywhere in the US but Las Vegas! As part of skignz ambitious growth plans we have been looking at key places across the globe to establish the skignz brand yet provide an unrivalled and enhanced customer experience.

Las Vegas is perfect for skignz; a destination for millions of people year on year and one so huge it's hard to find your way around. skignz is here to help you never get lost in Las Vegas again!

skignz: Welcome to Las Vegas, Nevada, US
Whether you are looking for somewhere nice to eat, a different environment to gamble or somewhere nice to shop? All of these places are a plenty in Las Vegas, so by using skignz, you will be able to find your way around, access special offers, interesting & interactive content and even use the App to find each other if you get lost?

Getting lost in a crowd is a problem all over the world, but in Las Vegas it's magnified a thousandfold due to the amount of people, the scale of the place you are in and all those bright lights and attractions to divert your attention!

skignz helps you find somewhere or someone in such a way that it can only be compared to, 'If all the electricity went off in Las Vegas and all the lights went out ... then a spotlight appeared above the place or person you are looking for, surely that will help you find that needle in a haystack!'

Si Brown, Co-Founder & CMO, skignz says: 
"Nick's background in providing leading edge technologies to increase event and customer experience and engagement, so he is the perfect fit for skignz, as skignz aims to take this whole concept completely off the scale!

We have been establishing a relationship with Nick for nearly a year now, but it struck us very early on that Nick could really get the skignz message across and explore the possibilities across a range of sectors in the US, such as Leisure & Tourism, Live Events, Education and Corporate Hospitality. All of these sectors Nick has already got experience in and we look forward to supporting him and his team in showcasing skignz incredible capabilities to them."

So now you know why Las Vegas? The 'Who' is just as important! We are very proud to announce that leading our US team will be a guy with over 20 years experience of living and working in Las Vegas and across the US, please take a bow; Mr Nick Vilardell, EVP, US Business Operations & Sales.

Nick Vilardell EVP, US Operations & Sales says:
"When I first came across skignz it was through their blog online, quite by accident when I was researching some new technology. Their video blog was funny but got me thinking I wanted to know more about these guys! The more I looked at them and read about them the more I was conviced that this was a company with a great future and undoubtedly some incredible ground breaking technology, that maybe others had touched on but nothing that had been put together and packaged in this way. 

From my inital conversation with Simon I was sold on their vision and since then I've been working closely with Simon and the rest of the skignz team to define the offering not only for Las Vegas, and its obvious potential, but also for a number of other markets and sectors I have contacts and experience but whilst still focussing in the US.

I actually feel quite lucky to be working with skignz at such an exciting time in their growth. I look forward to helping Si and Gary move forward, especially at the rate they are growing and attracting other prominent people into the business, the brands and companies coming onboard, this business will prove to be a phenomenal part of the future digital landscape. 

I could not be more excited at what lies ahead for skignz and the opening of the office in Las Vegas is the next logical step and a clear indication of skignz's ambition"

Nick already has a number of companies and organisations keen to take up the skignz offering, a number of the key brands on the 'famous Las Vegas strip' are already in the process of looking at how they can pilot it across their facilities. One skignz environment is already in place, at the Rhodes Ranch Golf Club where Nick is a member. 

Nick is currently working to utilize the skignz platform across many different aspects of their business, providing a simply awesome showcase for others to come along and experience.
