International Conference on Applied Internet and Information Technologies

How we perform processes, conduct business, interact or learn is not how it used to be. Mass disruption changed many industries and created room for more effective and efficient businesses through Outsourcing. Yes, services can be performed with lower prices and higher quality, be more useful, create a higher impact and be scalable at the same time. But are we using the most out of Outsourcing? Are we harvesting Outsourcing opportunities? Are we practicing BPO enough?

Are Macedonia and Western Balkans moving towards their maturity as outsourcing destinations? Well we are not sure, but we want to know the answers. That’s why we’ve dedicated a whole day on the 4th of June at the International conference on Applied Internet and Information Technologies Conference to Outsourcing opportunities that exist in Macedonia and Western Balkans- what can we do to boost up Outsourcing, how can we become Outsourcing experts, overcome cultural differences, and use all that in our everyday work.

2 full conference days, 1 Workshop, B2B meetings, Presentations, 2 top experts and just 50 available seats. The conference will be taking place in Bitola, on June 3-4, 2016.
