When I heard the bells ringing calling people for the closing plenary it struck me: this was it. Weird feeling when you’re still living in the hyper Sibos rhythm. Everyone today was saying goodbyes, running a few last minute meetings, hunting down freebies and giveaways (our wine seemed to be highly appreciated, as have none left!), talking about the Sibos party and flights back home.
Good Sibos all in all; our most requested demos were our solutions for the corporation to bank space and biometric identity. Also, visitors were interested in what we know and cand do for remittances & MFIs.
Thursday was a full day of back to back meetings for all of us, some very interesting and promising. Another “good Sibos” tick added to Allevo’s history. Many visitors dropped by unexpectedly, following the previous day’s community session on open source. I found it surprising that so many people showed interest in this techy and weird idea; stay tuned to hear more about it from us in the next few months!
Take a look on our website at the dedicated Sibos 2011 section for more details and information on our presence there.
To celebrate the happy end, the Allevo team opened the 5 o’clock bottles of wine and invited passers by to join us for a toast and for announcing the last three winners of the daily draw.
Now everyone can ditch the tie, leave all stress behind and head towards the long expected Sibos party!!!
