Comunitat Valenciana Digital District has consolidated during 2019 its role as a center of revitalization of the digital transformation of the Valencian region, through the attraction of companies of the New Economy, the promotion of formation activities in technological and innovation matters, and a variety of events in which around 6,700 people involved in the technology sector have participated.
The Digital District project, based in the objective of positioning the region in the global context of the technological ecosystems recognized by companies and professionals in the sector, has stepped on the accelerator in recent months to offer a differentiated environment and services. Companies fully develop their potential “talent attraction”, in addition to promoting the exchange of technological and digital knowledge between companies and other stakeholders.
In addition to the technology companies already installed, this growing technological hub has been opened to the participation of different entities, which are given the opportunity to be part of the digital ecosystem as partners or collaborators, and participate in the services, activities, events and formation offered or developed in the Digital District.
Since its launch, the Digital District has become the great forum of the Digital Economy in the south of the region and the meeting place of its professionals, all this, together with the pre-existing ecosystem around AlicanTEC (Association of technology companies in the province of Alicante).
