MediaNama is pleased to announce that the very first product to be introduced at its first #alpha showcase at The #NAMA Conference will be a path breaking initiative from the India Railways which will impact the lives of millions of train passengers across the country.

This ambitious information project will be presented by the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) in partnership with Stelling Technologies. Sunil Bajpai, Group General Manager at CRIS, who has been spearheading this initiative, will share with us the motivation behind its launch, what it means for the common train traveler and the future plans associated with the project.

We at #NAMA conference are proud to be part of this massive launch. Believe us – we’ve seen the product, and it justifies our approach of making #alpha a product showcase, and not just a startup showcase. There are five other companies who will be showcasing their product/business at #NAMA.

About #alpha

#alpha is a digital showcase – of great products and interesting business models. We’re trying to dispel the notion that India is not a market with great products or one for innovation, and also that innovation can take place irrespective of the size of the company, whether it’s a major corporation, a Public sector company or a startup.

#alpha products are going to be unique, fresh and interesting – the alpha product or alpha startup (and alpha as in top-of-the-gene-pool, not half-done-readying-for-beta).


Date: October 10th, 2012
Time: 0900hrs to 1830 hrs
Venue: The Westin, Gurgaon

About #NAMA

A transformation is taking place in both the Internet and Mobile services businesses. Along with uncertainty, there is significant opportunity. #NAMA seeks to shed light on challenges and uncertainties, what market leaders are doing about it, and point towards opportunities through deep, insightful and meaningful discussions and sharing of experiences.

Our focus is on providing the audience with valuable insight on the decisions that are being made, why they’re being made, what developments are influencing them, and how they will impact the growth of the digital industry going forward. We will provide #NAMA attendees with significant and varied learning about the digital ecosystem, and give them a reason to stay in the conference hall, not just chat in the hallway.
