The 50 employees will continue to grow together at the three branches in Antwerp (Schilde), Paal-Beringen, and Deerlijk. Jan Bussels will become CEO and, together with Sylvie Van de Leest, will assume the day-to-day management of the companies within the Digitopia Group.

Jan Bussels: “The acquisition of Aviniti makes Digitopia Group the biggest Belgian player by far in this digital market. The synergy between the companies – Digital Signage, Collaboration & AV integration – and the joint expertise allows us to further evolve on a European level as well, and to offer a comprehensive package to our clients.”
