  6. How did we come up with Cambassy?

    The Cambassy team found difficulty in finding great content for travel destinations around the world. When the search for Italy as a tourist destination was initiated, the content available before launching the Cambassy app was tourism advertising photos, hotel ratings and general information about the country. There was no content from students studying in the country, expats working there, or content from tourists in Italy at the time of search. The dilemma facing the Cambassy team was that the content was not a capture of the moment. Cambassy took the initiative to solve this problem by creating an app that highlights the experiences of expatriates, international students and travelers within a particular destination, to show a new kind of content that adds to the current content of tourism and travel. The idea was that there would be ambassadors from your country around the world, conveying a modern image with their eyes to the eyes of their people, and sharing it with the world.

  7. What are Cambassy’s plans?

    Cambassy aspires to be a platform to help people view their destinations accurately, discover the world and their countries from a new perspective, & inspires users to choose the right destination for their travel purpose. There will be many great features added in the future to further allow the display of better content & better travel. Such as: trip planning, ability to become an ambassador of an event such as World Cup or Fashion, and live broadcasting. As we progress, Cambassy will work with new technologies such as blockchain, advance e-commerce, and artificial intelligence to help improve the platform further.
