After a successful conference last year, we eagerly await this year’s Adria Summit 2023 “Future of Digital Commerce,” which will be held from May 3 to 7 at two locations, in Umag, Croatia, and Portorož, Slovenia. The second instance of this first-of-a-kind genuine Adriatic region event, while covering the future trends shaping traditional omnichannel eCommerce, will move further towards the technologies and models that enable the exchange of fully digital goods and services and the future of digital money.
Over 60 speakers are expected on 8 panels, and in addition to new discussion and networking formats, the organizers have also prepared some pleasant surprises for all summit participants. Zoran Torbica, one of the organizers and a man whose name is essential when it comes to internet business, has a very interesting question for all summit participants: Are you afraid of changes or are you looking forward to them?
