The must attend Growth, Innovation & Leadership 2017 conference will explore how to thrive amidst today's connected ecosystem

MEXICO CITY, Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mexican industry is undergoing an enormous transformation, resulting from the combination of more agile and innovative players and the intrusion of new technologies in all aspects of the business. As a result, already established market participants have the urgent need to reinvent themselves in order to remain competitive in the face of the threat of new competitors and changes in consumer preferences.

Frost & Sullivan's Growth, Innovation & Leadership (GIL) 2017: Mexico  will dive into the digital transformation focusing on the challenges and prospects across different industries. The annual summit will be hosted on November 30, 2017 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City.

"The key takeaway about digital transformation is that new menaces do not come from established players, but instead from start-ups that shake industries. Then, every organization must be ready to lead the change, or risk to be disrupted," says Ignacio Perrone, Digital Transformation Industry Manager at Frost & Sullivan.

Thought leaders from global high technology industries such as Telecommunications, Automotive, Financial Services, Healthcare, Oil & Gas sectors will converge to discuss how to seize potential opportunities from breakaway business models and value chains, as well as define a road map that will help ensure long-term success.
