A Unique Conference about Digital Transformation

One inspiring event, many inspiring stories:

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.

We invited some speakers that will deliver exceptional talks on the topics of AI, Robotics, IoT and Cyborgs. Of course we have some good examples of digital transformation 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.
