Qingdao is chasing dreams of a new wave of digital culture

From April 6 to 9, 2023 Qingdao Digital Culture Application Development Expo was held in Qingdao West Coast New Area, where famous experts, scholars and entrepreneurs in the field of domestic digital culture industry gathered to talk about ideas and share practical achievements around the theme of ‘New Application, New Experience and New Consumption’, in order to digitally empower the high-quality development of cultural industry.

A series of documents such as ‘Action Plan for Cultural Digitization in Shandong Province’ and ‘Policy List for High Quality Development of Qingdao Film and TV Base’ were officially released at the Expo, and the Digital Culture Industry Alliance of Shandong Province was announced to be established.
