The Swiss Digital Day will be held on October 25 by the location promotion initiative digitalswitzerland, according to a statement from digital-liechtenstein.li. For the first time, Vaduz will participate in the event as an official location, welcoming visitors to “get up close and personal” with digitalisation and “discuss opportunities and risks”, said Deputy Prime Minister and Economics Minister Daniel Risch.
Risch will officially open the Digital Day in Vaduz alongside futurologist Birgit Gebhardt and a representative of digital-liechtenstein.li at 9am in the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein. Visitors will then have the opportunity to “experience all aspects of the digital revolution”, writes the statement.
There will be a digital classroom in the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, and in Post Vaduz, the chance to create personalized stamps. In Postgass, virtual reality glasses will allow visitors to “drive” an excavator, while over at the Liechtenstein Center, the whole country can be discovered “digitally, multidimensionally and virtually”.
“The Digital Day aims to realistically present the opportunities of digitalisation to everyone, to build a bridge between the economy, science, politics and society,” commented initiative co-founders Markus Goop and Patrick Stahl of event agency Skunk AG. All programme events and activities are open access and free of charge.
