Digital Innovation and the opportunities ahead

12 December 2018 - Luxembourg

We will organize our third edition of our Disrupted or Disrupter conference on Digital Innovation and the opportunities ahead, which will take place on Wednesday, 12 December 2018 from 17:00 to 19:15.

Digital technology has changed the face of business as we know it. The Disrupted or Disrupter conference helps you to not only learn about new ideas and aspects of Digital Technology and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted, but introduce the advantages of making them part of your organization’s DNA, giving you the insight to navigate this rapidly shifting landscape and new ways of thinking.
Across the digital lifecycle — from defining a digital strategy to designing and building innovative solutions — the digital concepts initiate the digital reality of your organization today.

If you don’t want to be left behind, join us for dynamic and disruptive panel discussions featuring experts in their fields, both on a local and international level.
