i3forum APAC conference at Capacity Asia in HONG KONG



i3forum will be holding its first ever APAC conference at Capacity Asia on December 13, 2 to 4:30pm at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong.

This conference is open to everyone who attends Capacity Asia, i3forum members and non-members alike, and I would really like to encourage you, your colleagues and business partners to join us! As with our Annual Conference at ITW in Chicago, the goal is to update everyone on what the i3forum and its members are doing for the Industry, and to foster fruitful discussions on the transformation of the industry and how Carriers and vendors can go about it.

We have put together the following agenda (subject to change), and have already confirmed some extremely interesting speakers – many thanks to them!

Please let me know if you or some of your colleagues would be interested in being on one of the panel sessions – we’re looking for people who have a vision for the industry and want to share their experience and plans, and contribute to the discussions. (please note speakers do NOT have to be delegates to Capacity Asia).
