About us

With the Digital Economy Award, we motivate and encourage companies and organizations to advance the digital transformation and promote digitalization in Switzerland. 

The Digital Economy Award is organized by the ICT trade association swissICT, by the organization digitalswitzerland, and by the trade publisher Netzmedien AG. The Digital Economy Award was created in 2018 by a merger of the Swiss ICT Award and the Swiss Digital Transformation Award. The next award ceremony will take place on November 11, 2021, at the Hallenstadion in Zurich.
