Never attended a conference where relevant information flow is so well organised. The kind of conference with presentations, one-to-one meetings and informal events does ensure you get the right contacts. Excellent mixture of technical and business oriented presentations and one-to-one sessions.

As a Director of Pivetal and of 4 other carrier-centric technology companies, I will be recommending participation to the appropriate ones for the next summit. A great forum for the exchange of ideas and information.
Director, Pivetal Ltd.

We are pleased to announce the merger of the Next Generation Networks and IP Com Summits, designed to deliver a complete service offering to the Telecommunications Industry.

Through extensive experience in the telecoms market, marcus evans is yet again partnering with leading industry experts to offer an event which analyses the most up to date topics in the industry.

This exclusive summit is specifically designed for the high level and most senior executives responsible for network development and strategy. The event takes place over three days and two nights allowing this prestigious Summit to bring together senior corporate decision makers, pioneering practitioners, and leading innovators. The executive delegation will be able to address key industry concerns in the most effective manner in a professional and relaxed environment.

In addition to the formal Summit activities, participants will be able to take advantage of informal networking opportunities. Outside business hours, participants can relax and enjoy the splendid facilities the venue has to offer.

To maximise the value to each attendee, delegates will be able to view full details of the programme prior to the event, in order to specify their preferred sessions and meetings, and therefore devise their own personal schedule.

A Unique Event Format

Keynote Lectures presented by leading professionals who will address topics of primary interest to delegates. They will examine global current trends and provide a vision of the industry and the future of converged networks.

Seminars specially designed for larger groups, these sessions will involve a presentation followed by question time. A number of case study presentations by pioneering practitioners will be delivered in this format to ensure that proposed solutions and strategies are grounded in reality and delegates are able to anticipate obstacles and pre-empt problems on a practical level on return to their organisation.
Discussions and Think Tanks as breakout sessions. These sessions are designed for smaller groups and will follow a highly interactive format, encouraging a high level of participation, and exchange of ideas. Delegates will therefore have the unique opportunity to set the agenda for these sessions and ensure that sessions focus closely on the challenges and concerns attendees encounter in their day-to-day business lives.

One-to-One Business Meetings provide an unparalleled opportunity for delegates to meet with senior representatives from service providers, and focus on the issues most relevant to their current needs and strategies.

The creation of the Executive Advisory Board is aimed to ensure that marcus evans is guided by the best minds in order to deliver excellence to the industry. Members of the Board shall bring their experience and expertise to ensure that the event serves the rapidly changing needs of the Telecommunications industry. Industry experts and practitioners assist in designing an innovative summit programme focusing on the latest technology solutions in the next generation networks industry.

We express sincere appreciation to our prestigious Executive Advisory Board.
