Royal Hotel in Antalya, Turkey.
The Plenipotentiary Conference is the
top policy-making body of the International Telecommunication Union
Held every four years, the Conference sets the Union's general policies,
adopts four-year strategic and financial plans and elects the senior management
team of the organization, the members of
Council and the members of the

it is the key event at which ITU Member States decide on the future role of
the organization, thereby determining the organization's ability to
influence and affect the development of Information and communication
technologies (ICT) worldwide.
