The 2nd Annual Baltic Sea Region 5G Ecosystem Forum “5G Techritory" – one of the leading 5G events worldwide will be held on 27-29 November 2019 in Riga, Latvia.
Within the framework of the ITU European Regional Initiative on Broadband Infrastructure, broadcasting and spectrum management, adopted by the World Telecommunication Development Conference 2017 (WTDC-17), Buenos Aires, the Forum is organized by the Electronic Communication Office of Latvia in close cooperation with the International Telecommunication Union and is supported by several industry-leading organizations.
The main objective of the Forum is to team up for coordinated action to continue the development of the above-mentioned platform in order to establish the Baltic Sea Region as a role model for building the European Gigabit society. As part of side events, ITU and BEREC are jointly organising a Regulatory Roundtable on “ Enabling Environment for 5G from 15:00 to 16:00". The main Forum will take place from November 28-29 with more than 5 value-adding official side events (the first-ever 5G policymakers' hackathon, a 5G key stakeholders' roundtable, the “Meet the 5G Technology” expo and more) involving some of the main global and regional 5G stakeholders. The Forum will include high-level business and political debates, and practical business case studies by top-level 5G policymakers, heads of major industry organisations, business leaders, and other high-value stakeholders on the latest progress in 5G global commercialization, its related innovative business models, and potential 5G cross-border projects. A focus will be placed on smart mobility, smart city, smart media and entertainment, and Industry 4.0 verticals.
