ITU Telecom World 2014


ITU Telecom World 2014, to be held from 7- 10 December in Doha, Qatar, brings together public and private sectors, emerging and developed markets, experts and investors from across the ICT ecosystem. Because exploring the new realities of the industry needs a global view. Join world experts in Doha this December and be part of the one conversation that matters.

Leadership Summit and Forum

Not keeping pace with the radical advances and transformation of our ICT ecosystem risks not fully understanding the threats posed and opportunities offered. ITU Telecom World 2014 is a unique chance to confront the future, explore new realities and scenarios and better understand their impact on our lives and businesses. The exclusive Leadership Summit: Focus on the Future, interactive debates and panel discussions in the Forum aim at equipping decision-makers with insight and understanding of the future - and its implications for the industry and society.


The central space at World 2014, the showfloor brings together exhibitors, investors, projects and decision-makers from around the world. National Pavilions and Industry Stands showcase solutions, technologies, partnership and investment opportunities. Workshop sessions, lounge areas and private meeting rooms encourage the debate, conversations and connections that matter. And the interactive demos and innovative applications of the InnovationSpace offer a glimpse of the future in action.
