Digital skills worth over £1bn to Welsh economy

Digital 2013 is a two-day event that begins today at the Celtic Manor at Newport which aims to enable businesses to harness cutting-edge technologies for economic benefit.

Led by the Welsh Government's ICT Exploitation Unit it will be bringing world experts to Welsh business leaders.

High-growth, innovative businesses are at the core of any buoyant economy and supporting them to utilise technology will be key if Wales is to be positioned at the cutting edge of the digital economy.

It's promising to see such a high-profile digital event held here in Wales, demonstrating Wales' credentials as an outward-looking nation that's committed to up-skilling the economy and getting behind the digital agenda to encourage inward investment and growth.

– Sir Terry Matthews

Leaders from global technology organisations will share their expertise on cutting edge megatrend technologies at the event.
