Keeping up with the fast pacing business environment

The 6th edition of Business Days Timisoara – 6-7th of April 2016

It’s that time of the year again when managers and entrepreneurs meet at the biggest business event in the region.

Important issues with regard to the global challenges that technology brings and how it will change us, the enterprises, the industries and the society will be discussed.  Such important issues will be put into discussion by experienced professionals well known for their visions and performances.

In preparation of the event, Business Days has conducted a research within a pool of 250 entrepreneurs, top managers, managers and professionals (experts) selected in three well developed counties from a economic standpoint, in the Western part of Romania ( Timiș, Arad and Bihor) which indicated that the top 3 industries where the region can perform are agriculture, software development and IT&C. Also, the researchers questioned participants about the main success business factors in the Western region of Romania. In descending order of the recorded votes, the factors that determine success in business have been: the team, innovation, the business plan, the business idea, networking, technology comprehension and use, the taxation system and taxation, access to easy financing, the starting capital, the intensity of the competition within the market, authorities’ support and “the old, good luck”. One may argue that technology comprehension and use deserves more credit because of the innovation drive it brings. Furthermore, whatever the industry a firm competes in, the technology comprehension and use is not only a competitive necessity but it might even be a source of competitive advantage.

The program of the event is built around this idea, part of the plenary sessions, workshops and debates focusing about digital transformation of the industries, the online business environments, online marketing, besides more general business topics. Banat IT is actively involving in the promotion of the event and in shaping its content, by encouraging IT companies in the region to be present, to engage with the participating officials and representatives of local and visiting companies, to expose the issues they are perceiving in the regional economy and the solutions they imagine, to network and to start/continue building partnerships.

Further details regarding the event program can be found here.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet interesting people and to learn how to keep up with the fast pacing environment.
