why our world is digital
The growing digitalization of communication using tools such as virtualization, the cloud, media production, mobile devices, service management and a focus on information management and collaboration depend heavily on visual communication techniques. Where once text and audio prevailed, now info graphics, video, animation and photos are the preferred medium for expressing ideas and presenting information.
Our conference tracks focus on exposing the digital media elements in every aspect of the world as a whole and specifically in business and the workplace.
