It will be a unique meeting between public and private stakeholders in this sector of new technologies, seizing the opportunities to exchange and know the firms and exhibitors of technology providers, as well as to participate to specialized conferences.
In particular, this event provides an exceptional opportunity to meet with key authorities, ministries, government agencies and municipalities of Chile, interested in promoting the use of information and communication technologies for the management of their cities and for the development of relevant public policies and for developing new ways for citizen participation. Several international organizations and agencies will participate too, as well as other Latin American countries and the Chilean government will present its “Digital Agenda”, its realization and prospects.
