Alicante, Friday, February 25, 2022.- Digital District Comunitat Valenciana, has moved this week a delegation, led by its CEO Antonio Rodes, to Malaga to see first hand the technological projects of this city that are a benchmark in the sector and are a model of success to follow in the planning of strategies for revitalization and strengthening of Digital District.
Also taking part in the visit were the coordinator of Distrito Digital, Ezequiel Sánchez, and the head of Operations, Diversification and Development of New Activities, Santiago Ambit, who together with Antonio Rodes toured the facilities of Málaga TechPark, the Parque Tecnológico de Andalucía (PTA), and held a meeting with its general manager, Felipe Romera.
Like Distrito Digital, the PTA was a pioneering venture to promote innovation and research, initially promoted by the Administration – the Andalusian Regional Government and Malaga City Council. Since its inauguration in 1992, universities and a private initiative have been incorporated into the project, making it a leading international technology hub.
The Distrito Digital team took advantage of its visit to the capital of the Costa del Sol to visit other outstanding spaces such as the Digital Content Hub, the ecosystem of the digital media and entertainment industry, the Video Game Factory, and Telefónica’s 42 Málaga programming campus, as well as to hold a meeting with several well-known entrepreneurs based in Málaga.
The general manager of Distrito Digital, Antonio Rodes, has valued very positively this experience in which they have been able to see “how a mature and long-established digital ecosystem evolves”, and exchange views on its keys to success, especially in terms of attracting and retaining talent, and promoting collaborative synergies for the generation of new business opportunities within the sector.
“We have been able to see the effectiveness of formulas that the Generalitat Valenciana, through the Department of Innovation and Digital District, is also committed to, such as attracting and retaining talent, with initiatives as ambitious as the Talent District,” said Rodes.
“We have also been able to see how the specialized services that are becoming increasingly important for technology companies have to do with business networking,” he added.
