as the year draws to a close we would like to send out a sign of life.
To look back on this year: it was amazing! The D4G-competition pitchforked our project to a new level and it required some time to handle all the input from Dubai. We gave a lot of interviews, had meetings with potential partners and got a lot of positive feedback from all around the world. Greetings to all of you!
During the competition we got in contact with numerous high-ranking representatives from politics, business and research. The Window Cleaning Drones team with its Head of Project Marcus Fritzsche watched the finals together with one of the high-level German politicians in Dubai Vice Consul Wiebke Gaede.
This underlines the importance of the competition. Now we are looking forward to next year.
Thank you Mrs. Gaede
today we were present at the competition side, too. We not only watched the finals on all three categories,
but we also wanted to take the boost from this outstanding competition with us!
Everyone of our team got in contact with a lot of valuable contacts, potential partners and of course with media.
We talked with CNN, BBC, Spiegel, the French TV and many many other correspondents from all over the world.
Semifinals are over - and sorry: we are out.
The judges gave us a good rating of 66.5 % but some teams performed better.
It was a very good show and thanks to all supporters. Now we are looking forward!
Now it is on time!
We are on stage in the second international group. Beginning from 14:35 local time.
Maybe there is a broadcast on "Dubai TV" or not... we don´t know.
The finalist announcement is scheduled for 15:55. Keep the fingers crossed...
Greetings from mf, yb, bb and mg
Some annotations about our present location.
The competition is located at Dubai Internet City. It was founded in 1999 as a technology park and free economic zone 25 km south of the city center of Dubai. It is near to Dubai Media City, a similiar park with focus on media.
Hello an all sides,
we are now back at the hotel and had to rest a bit.
Today we performed the rehearsal and it went very well: The drone did its job at the window, the presentation looks really good on giant LED-screens and now all participants of our core team will have an active performance on stage.
International competition? Challenge accepted! :-)
