The digital creative industries and the Orange Economy, the themes of Colombia 4.0
Between September 25-27, technology and the creative industries will join forces at Colombia 4.0, the most important digital and Orange Economy gathering in the country.
The event will take place at the Corferias conference center and explore subjects like industry 4.0, animation, video games, music, media, and entrepreneurship, with major national and international speakers from the technological and creative industries. It will also include the theme of the Orange Economy, as well as a space for networking and mentoring for attendees.
Leading experts from international companies such as Pixar, Disney, Marvel, Coursera, Cartoon Network and IBM, among many others, will share all their knowledge on the industry.
The event will also feature the presence of influential figures from the worlds of animation, artificial intelligence and innovation, such as Dr. Andrew Ng, a global expert in AI, CEO of Landing AI and partner of AI Fund; Ernesto Kern, the director of the Mobile City Special Projects Unit of the Buenos Aires city government; Aphton Corbin, a representative of Pixar Animation Studios and a storyboard artist on films like Toy Story 4; and Jaime Jiménez, the director of digital content at Cartoon Network Mexico.
The sector of the technological and creative industries has experienced huge growth over recent years in Bogota, and in Colombia in general. The country has positioned itself as the fourth most important in Latin America in terms of technological services, with estimated market size of US$4.4bn.
Furthermore, Bogota is among the cities making the strongest commitment to the Orange Economy, due to the creative and cultural talent that it boasts and also the support provided to the industry by the government, with initiatives such as the Bogota Chamber of Commerce’s strategy to present the creative and cultural industries as potential economic drivers for the city. According to DANE, the Orange Economy represents approximately 4billion pesos per year for Bogota.
The event is supported by the Ministry of Information Technologies and Communications (MinTIC).
