Join Santander as they take a look at the TMT subsectors presenting the biggest opportunities for UK companies in Spain and hear from IndraVentures – Indra’s corporate vehicle to promote and support innovation – regarding their areas of interest.
Home to two of the world’s largest and most influential technology event, Mobile World Congress, and host to other leading sector specific shows such as Smart City Expo, Spain offers an exciting landscape for the development of many technology, media, and telecommunication (TMT) verticals.
The TMT sector in Spain provides significant opportunities, in particular cross-cutting technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics, internet of things (IoT), immersive technology and gamification, and cyber security. 5G communications are in demand in high-growth domain areas such as smart cities, net zero, and cleantech and business critical functions, such as sales and marketing, production, supply chain, operations, and logistics. We’re delighted to be joined by speakers from the Department for Business and Trade (DBT) and Indra, one of the leading global technology and consulting companies, to discuss these opportunities and the wider Spanish TMT market.
