With the aim of accelerating the digital transformation of Spanish SMEs, DES2021 has become an essential event that brings together thousands of SMEs every year in search of a technological partner. In this edition, the event aims to help them identify the opportunities offered by the European NextGeneration EU recovery funds for the transformation of production models.
The event will bring together once again the entire technological ecosystem, public representatives and managers so that, tangibly, they can learn about all the latest solutions that respond to the new social and economic challenges after the health crisis. Also, the European recovery funds NextGeneration EU, which promote a change in the production model of the economy through digitization and sustainability, will be the main topics of the Digital Business World Congress. In the congress, Spanish SMEs would be able to identify how to take advantage of these funds through digitization, as well as tools they can use to improve their competitiveness. In this sense, the congress will also feature the Public Administrations Forum, in which the different digital solutions available for better governance will be presented and in which digitization goes through the example of the administration of our country itself.
