The future of the telecoms industry

In 2020, the Telecommunications, Media and Technology industries have been on the frontlines; keeping nations afloat, economies going and societies intact.

The technologies that we once considered ‘emerging,’ are having their moment and we can expect to see more of this in 2021.

There’s never been a better time for the region’s telecoms industry to come together and learn how to survive and thrive in the future environment.

The first of its kind, this virtual event will focus on the strategies, technologies and big ideas that will be essential for telecoms companies in 2021. We’ll be broadcasting presentations and live interactive sessions from leading industry execs across the region. Join in from wherever you are online either live or watch the sessions on-demand.
