Keynote: Digital Transformation and Strategic Partnerships
Pressure on traditional revenues from digital disrupters means that it is increasingly important for operators to invest in new business models and operational processes to make sure that they too share in the value from digital transformation. In our increasingly digitally connected world, the power of face-to-face communication cannot be ignored. Designing workspaces and communities for industry clusters to facilitate collaboration can bring people together to create synergies and attract talent, ideas, and investors. The ‘Dubai Silicon Oasis’ is a prime example of how the region is demonstrating leadership here. Beyond digital transformation efforts, many of the region’s operators are also seeing the value of forming strategic partnerships with OTTs. This session will demonstrate best practice examples of digital transformation and strategic partnerships from across the world, as well as provide an understanding of how to overcome some of the key challenges that may be faced on this journey.
