True to their mission to assist companies in the Bourgas region to make the right decisions Dint Foundation and Bourgas Municipality organize a Digital Conference on the Digital Future of Bourgas. The event will be held on May 15, 2018 at Flora Expo Center.
The aim of the forum is to discuss the latest trends in digitalization, which is no longer a tool for business automation, but a means of generating revenue, seeking customers and creating markets.
Projections show that organizations that fail to develop a digital business by 2018 will have much worse market positions than they are currently. The use of technology, whether small or medium, or a large business, is key to the survival of firms in the period 2018-2020.
