How technological innovation is changing business careers and effectiveness of people? Why some businesses will disappear in a few years (even you do not believe it today) and how and which new ones will prosper? This are just some of the topics that the organizers of the largest technology and marketing conference in Bulgaria and Eastern Europe – CEEDS’15 officially announced yesterday.
“A lot of businesses are living in the past, while the future is happening today. Today, there are better solutions for management, customer service, marketing and advertising, innovation, sales … and they are all related to digital technologies. To be successful it is no longer enough to “have computer skills”, you have to lead the digital transformation of your industry! ” said Plamen Rusev, serial entrepreneur, investor in technology companies and organizer of CEEDS’15, which will held on April 21-22 in Sofia.
Among the highlights of this year’s event will be one of the most interesting and fast-growing markets at the moment “ this of the portable “smart” devices – watches, sunglasses, bracelets. The data shows that the sales in the sector will increase by over 35% over the next five years. Attendees of CEEDS will become part of the debate on the topic of e-health, the management of “big data” e-learning, digital transformation, social media, marketing, advertising, entrepreneurship and the creation of viral content.
The organizers believe that the IT industry in the CEE region has a future and great potential, but for this to happen it need appropriate managers and young people to be trained by the best professionals to have access to international practices and be encouraged to develop. This is what happens at CEEDS’15!
“80% of the visitors of CEEDS and Webit said that they received a promotion at work after having attended our events in Sofia, Istanbul, Dubai or elsewhere. People who visit CEEDS are a special group always searching, innovative, eager for success and career development and with lots of potential, “said Plamen Rusev.
