The event promises exciting insights into the future of digitalisation and brings together the key players and thought leaders in the industry. Numerous networking events offer professionals, companies and investors promising opportunities to make valuable contacts. Whether hacker, manager, scientist, programmer or CEO – the festival unites hierarchies, functions and industries in one place, builds bridges to the general public on Public Day and creates the most relevant, interdisciplinary and promising community in Switzerland during three days. “At the heart of digitalisation lies not only technology, but the infinite capacity of the human mind to create something new and overcome boundaries.” says Ralph Roos, Head of Digital Festival & HackZurich.
