Best in Gran Canaria attends virtual meetings during the DPW conference

The Economic Promotion Society of Gran Canaria, through the ‘Best in Gran Canaria’ initiative, attends the Digital Procurement World (DPW) conference, which brought together the main digital procurement agents on September 16th and 17th. This conference, which usually takes place in the city of Amsterdam, was held this year in virtual format.

This event is an opportunity to expand knowledge about the digital operation of Shared Services Centres and the Business Process Outsourcing sector, most specifically service-providers and users involved in the core purchasing activities. Equally, ‘Best in Gran Canaria’ has profited from engaging with leading start-ups involved in the development of technological/digital solutions for the sector.

They have been exposed to the economic and tax advantages of operating from Gran Canaria, highlighting two potential opportunities: as a near-shore base for procurement units, on one hand, and as tech base for testing and developing digital solutions that seek to raise new capabilities to strategic buyers and to help in the automatization process of recurring transactional tasks.

Thus, ‘Best in Gran Canaria’ will continue during this month professional meetings with the start-ups present in this edition will be held, in order to introduce these advantages and the fact that Gran Canaria, through SPEGC and other local entities, can become the key support-partner for these initiatives to take off.
