Amcham has worked hard to make this event happen and ensure access to all interested parties as a public service. It believes this will be one of the most significant must-attend IT events of the year.


Luxembourg (like the rest of Europe, and indeed the world) has begun a transformative change process which cannot be ignored and cannot be stopped. This change process is all encompassing and will fundamentally impact how we organise and use information, what we learn and know, and how we function as business entities, government bureaucracies, education providers and private individuals. We have only two choices: adapt and prepare ourselves as organisations and individuals to organise, think and function in completely new ways and view this process as an opportunity to totally re-invent ourselves so we can thrive, prosper and live in a new, better world than we presently have… or become those who are left behind with negative consequences for our well-being and happiness which we all will regret.

Luxembourg has already begun this journey for some time under the leadership of our present Prime Minister and his key leaders: We have installed many kilometers of fiber optic cables to ensure every organization, business and individual is connected to the grid; we have the greatest per capita critical mass of Data Centers on the planet; we have installed computers in every classrooms; the Labour Ministry is investing heavily in digital retraining programmes for young, middle-aged and older workers of both genders. We have much to be proud of; and many of our companies are embracing and starting to heavily invest in digital transformation redesign initiatives as well. As said, we have much to be proud of.

But, there is still an enormous amount of institutional and personal work left to be done ensuring we as a society, composed of both institutions and individuals, do the necessary comprehensive processes self- analysis and undertake the necessary implementation changes to get it all right.

Ensuring that every part of our business, governmental and social society from top to bottom is included and benefits with no institution or individual left behind, has to be our main focus. This will be very heavy lifting with enormous benefits if we succeed.

Let’s listen, discuss and commit to make Luxembourg the first Digital Country of Tomorrow in Europe and reap the benefits.
