CONCEPT

  • DX without borders to change the world

    DX (Digital Transformation), which promotes transformation in society and business, cannot bear fruit even if it is promoted by a specific industry or company alone. Real innovation will be born and transformation will be realized by collaborating and combining across industry sectors and organizations.
    Issues such as climate change, pandemics, and the crisis in Ukraine facing the world have triggered a review of geopolitical challenges, global supply chains, and food and energy security, and various changes and chaleenges are being sought without waiting. ..
    The Super DX/SUM brings together DX companies in the fields of finance, agriculture and energy, start-ups, and IT companies that support transformation with technologies such as AI, IoT and blockchain. The event will take on the challenge of creating new industries and businesses by developing discussions and networking without the boundaries of the industrial sector.
