After their very succesfull transformation of Istrian town of Bale into a town-hotel, one of the world’s leading tech companies, Dell Technologies, decided to turn Obonjan Island into the tech innovation island for a few days in September.
And that came just a few months after Jared Leto converted Obonjan into his own personal party-island, so the conclusion that Obonjan has many faces is easily reached. Večernji list writes about the conference organized by Dell, called Go Beyond, which has brought over 200 people from over 20 European countries to Obonjan in the last week of September. They’re sharing their experiences with the new trends in how business is done, and significant technological innovations that make the business world go further. Anja Monrad, Senior Vice President & General Manager for CEE in Dell Technologies said that they’re trying to point out the strength of the technologies that influence the betterment od people, allows our own limitations to be beaten and inequality to be avoided. Their experts, she added, are presenting steps that the organisations make, including modernizing the infrastructure, motivating the employees and application of software in order to establish the basis for the digital future and support the new wave of technology-driven human advances.
The participants at this conference had the opportunity to hear various interesting lectures on advanced and sustainable business, digital trends and innovations and artificial intelligence. The idilyc setting of the island, which has proven to be able to host a business meeting of this magnitue welcomed a discussion on women in technology, with focus on the equality. However, enough free time has been left for the participants to enjoy the beauty of the island and the activities characteristic for times spent in nature, by the beach between the lectures. Filipa Petrović, regional marketing manager for Centran and Eastern Europe added that this year again the idea is to focus on innovation, in products, in presentations but also in the selection of the location. Obonjan island has the possibility to turn a business conference into a unique eco-friendly event. That’s why we decided to take advantage of this tech innovation island to promote the responsible business practices.
