Poland to host ITU Global Symposium for Regulators

4th-generation regulation for a 4G world


Geneva, 1 May, 2013 – Media accreditation is now open for ITU’s annual Global Symposium for Regulators, the world’s pre-eminent gathering of the global ICT regulatory and policy-making community.

Hosted this year in Warsaw by Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications (UKE), the symposium features world-class speakers and a dynamic programme focused around the hot topics challenging today’s ICT regulators.

Highlights include the quest for additional wireless spectrum to support future mobile growth, strategies to drive 4G infrastructure investment, digital money, roadblocks to IPv6 implementation, and emerging new revenue models for telcos, such as online advertising and IP-based broadcasting.

The first two days of the symposium comprise the Global Regulators-Industry Dialogue (GRID, 3-4 July), and are open to regulators, policy makers and members of ITU’s Development Sector. The third day (5 July) is a closed session open to regulators and policy makers only. The morning session on Wednesday 3 July is open to media, culminating in a press conference scheduled to take place at 12:45.
