Among these entities, he mentioned the Software Development Company, Copextel, several universities, especially that of Informatics, Etecsa (Cuban Telecommunications Enterprise), and the Cuban banking system.

Vazquez Acea confirmed there will take place a videogame tournament with DOTA 2 , where lovers of these games can participate as a proposal for all ages. The fair will be placed at Cienfuegos´ Boulevard, Santa Isabel St corridor and in the Jose Marti Park of this city.
Cienfuegos has 27 JCCE facilities in its provincial territory, which includes the one located in El Sopapo, within the mountains of the municipality of Cumanayagua, and Ciber 3 of the Amusement Park Amanecer Feliz.
For its part, Cuba has an infrastructure of more than 640 computer rooms, since the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz created on September 8, 1987 the first JCCE in the country, with the aim of bringing the family closer and easier Cuban knowledge in these specialties.
