Seattle & San Francisco
The next Digital Innovators´ tour is coming up: In November, VDZ and FIPP will travel to the USA to experience the most important media & tech trends up close. This time we are going to visit two of the most exciting technology centers in the country: Seattle & San Francisco!
Silicon Valley as well as San Francisco is still the worldwide epitome of technological invention. Since the entire region is still permeated with a unique innovation spirit, a visit to the Bay Area will be without question the highlight of the tour.
We will also travel to Seattle, the home of Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Expedia and Tableau. The city at Puget Sound in the northwest corner of the USA is currently the fastest growing tech metropolis in the USA. Seattle has a thriving startup scene – not least because the University of Washington offers one of the most prestigious training programs for software engineers, next to Stanford and MIT – and more and more corporations are moving their software development to Washington’s largest city. Meanwhile, more than 80 tech companies are running software development departments in Seattle – from AirBnB to the Walt Disney Group.
