Unique Audience

ITU Telecom World events bring together a uniquely comprehensive audience of public and private sector players at the highest level.

The world-class forum offers interactive discussion unrivalled in the reach of its content and the quality of its speakers. Panellists are experts in their fields, offering informed opinions and contrasting perspectives from government, business and technology. Innovative solutions, strategies, policies, models and markets emerge from passionate and collaborative debate.



National pavilions, industry stands and thematic pavilions showcase products, technologies, investment and partnership opportunities from around the world on the showfloor. Centred around the OpenSpace meeting hub and featuring media and leaders' lounges, the futuristic InnovationSpace and workshop areas, the showfloor provides a natural environment for networking and knowledge-sharing on a global stage.



Networking events and spaces are crafted to facilitate the connections that matter between public and private sector decision-makers, between individuals, ideas and industry players. Connections that stimulate innovation, opportunity and partnerships, driving the success of the industry - whether through targeted bilateral meetings, structured social occasions or informal discussions over coffee.
