GIL 2015: the revolution from traditional to digital business


The most important industry leaders will meet in the Principality of Monaco for the second edition of Frost & Sullivan’s GIL 2015 on October 22nd.


How can a traditional company become digital? How can we act quickly to create a success work environment for a sustainable growth? The traditional business is changing because of the sectors convergence, the competitive global market and the rapid development of the connected world. To define future strategies for growth, considering these regional and global challenges, Frost & Sullivan brings together a network of leaders from different fields during its annual event GIL (The Global Community of Growth, Innovation and Leadership). GIL 2015 returns for its second edition in Monte Carlo on October 22nd. Experts from Frost & Sullivan and various industrial sectors will take part in the event, that will be held at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. “The main themes of the conference will be connectivity and convergence.
