At the Glitz Biz Quiz 2018 that was held last month, one single point separated The 99X Technology Quiz Team from the overall winners of the quiz. The 99X Technology team, comprising of Associate Technical Leads Shirantha De Alwis and Rangitha Kuruppu, and Senior Technical Lead Sudath Thenuwara went head-to-head with over 30 corporate teams.
After a total of 50 questions, the team emerged as winners in the IT/Software category for the sixth year running. Further, the team placed second in the overall quiz competition.
Held at the Galadari Hotel, Colombo, the quiz attracted Sri Lanka’s premier corporate quiz teams including Dialog Axiata, People’s Bank, Hatton National Bank, DFCC Bank, Seylan Bank and SriLankan Airlines, among others.
Having emerged the Mercantile Quiz Champions at the 2017 edition of this premier corporate quiz, the 99X Technology Quiz Team was keen to add another victory to its name, but lost the title to the 2016 winners, People’s Bank.
Initiated by a group of enthusiastic, like-minded employees with a keen interest in general knowledge, the 99X Technology Quiz Team has maintained a constant presence in the mercantile quiz scene over the past several years and continues to make its mark at a number of events annually.
