DigiConX 2018
Sep 5 – Sep 6 all-day

The digital revolution is here. So, what does that mean? It could mean the difference between thriving, surviving, or just not making it. The digital age is moving faster than our previous industrial revolution did and could naturally create winners and losers. However, companies that are willing to innovate and invest can unlock tremendous value and may remain financially strong regardless of what happens to global supply and demand trends.

The digital cavalry is here, but it won’t rescue everyone. Only the brave enough to embrace it will be the ones to make a difference.

This Conference & Exhibition across two days will discuss and debate on the five innovations that are transforming the Oil, Gas & Petrochemicals sector.
