In times of anniversary, Continental involved this year also in well-known festivals in Banat and Ardeal region: Flight Festival in Timișoara and Focus in the Park in Sibiu.
Flight Festival is about combining technology, art and fun. Colleagues from Continental Automotive and Tires Timisoara chose to promote also this year the products and technologies that we develop in all the tech sections of the event organized in August. We took part in Flight Hackathon where our colleagues, Sorin Bora and Oana Carebia were mentors for the 12 participating teams, competing in one of the three tracks: tourism, culture and creativity, and smart city, we offered the award and a company visit to the winners of the Smart City section; Alexandru Budișan and Paul Naglatzki were on the stage in the TechTalks talking about how the CES digital services platform can contribute to improving Smart Mobility in a modern city, and instant virtual expert support ensured by augmented reality glasses; we’ve got in direct contact with the community in the Tech World - a space designed for interaction with diverse and educational experiences such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Machine Learning; and the retro scene wear our colours, as it was all Powered by Continental.
Some kilometers away and some days later, between September 15th - 19th, Continental Sibiu joined the fun in the Great Square, at the third edition of the Focus in the Park festival, a special edition called Focus in the City. There were five days of live music, street food, coffee corner, and in the center of the city was the orange continental area specially designed for the world to enjoy good music, food and relaxation. Despite the capricious September weather, the participants were not scared, and Alternosfera, Coma, The Man with Rats, Byron, The Mono Jacks, Domino and Suburbia11 are just some of the bands that have taken to the Focus stage this year and removed the clouds with their beats.
See you next year! Until then, #stayfocus on #flight and…#teamwork!
