About the Conference

Digitalization has been around for a while. Now we know for sure that it is not just another buzzword, but a movement that can-not be ignored neither by companies nor among public institutions. Organizations all around the word are applying emerging technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence. Awareness that digital transformation is primarily a business challenge that requires changes in organizational culture, people, business processes and business models is increasing.

However, most of European countries are falling behind. Therefore we invited some speakers from most developed European countries to this year’s conference.  Of course we have some good examples also in regional companies from different industries and we invited them too to share their good practices. So, the main purpose of this year’s conference is to distribute knowledge about successful digital transformation and innovative digital business models in the target group of directors, managers and other professionals connected with digitalization.
