Holding Time:14-17 November 2016

ITU Telecom World 2016 takes place from 14-17 November in Bangkok, Thailand

It’s the global platform to accelerate ICT innovations for social and economic development, where policy makers and regulators meet industry experts, investors, SMEs (small and medium enterprises), entrepreneurs and innovators. Organized since 1971 by ITU, the United Nations specialized agency for ICTs, the event helps ideas go further, faster to make the world better, sooner. Focusing on the digital economy and SMEs, ITU Telecom World 2016 combines an exhibition for digital solutions, a forum for sharing knowledge, a networking hub for nations, organizations and individuals - and an Award programme which recognizes global excellence in innovation for social impact

ITU Telecom World 2016, taking place in Bangkok, Thailand, this November, will continue to facilitate important connections across public and private sectors, nations, individuals and ideas. But it will also focus concretely on developing those connections into meaningful collaboration – on how we can work together to make positive change happen faster, to make the world better, sooner

The Forum debates will explore collaboration in new technological developments, such as 5G and the Internet of Things, which are powering solutions from the connected car to smart cities, ehealth or digital financial services. All of these solutions have the potential to change our lives dramatically for the better; to drive industry growth and socio- economic development. But none of them can happen without collaboration. Regulators, businesses and government ministries need to work together across vertical sectors – it’s not just about ICT or finance, for example, but a combination of the two very different cultures

Standardization, interoperability, and security call for new partnerships, new approaches and new ways of thinking to develop and take to scale new solutions. In a digital ecosystem made up of ever more stakeholders, from governments driving policy and regulation to established, major ICT companies, disruptive new OTT players and innovative SMEs, working together is the only way to meet these challenges
