Under the slogan “Reimagine Business”, more than 500 experts from around the world will share their strategies, knowledge and success stories of applying technology to different sectors at the Digital Business World Congress, the leading conference on digital transformation that will be held within the framework of DES2022. In total, there will be more than 250 hours of presentations in a content agenda that is completed with six vertical forums focused on different industries (industry 5.0, retail and logistics, health, smart cities, banking, and tourism and hospitality) and agendas focused on each professional profile (CEOs, CIOs, CMOs, CDOs, CFOs and Human Resources).

President Obama took office at a moment of crisis unlike any America had seen in decades – a nation at war, a planet in peril, the American Dream itself threatened by the worst economic calamity since the Great Depression.  And yet, despite all manner of political obstruction, Obama’s leadership helped rescue the economy, revitalize the American auto industry, reform the health care system to cover another twenty million Americans, and put the country on a firm course to a clean energy future – all while overseeing the longest stretch of job creation in American history.
