Top Telecom Executives Join Forces in Latin America for GDS International's Latest NG Telecoms Summit in March

PANAMA CITY, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

On the 18th to the 20th of March 2013, the InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa, Panama, will bear witness to what promises to be the most disruptive event in the telecom industry next year - GDS International's highly anticipated seventh Next Generation Telecoms Latin America summit (NGT LA7).

Taking place over two-and-a-half days, the summit will incorporate roundtable meetings, working lunches, peer-led panel discussions, and vibrant workshops. In addition to these group-networking sessions, delegates will be given the opportunity to participate in more intimate one-on-one sessions to establish working relationships and discuss operational strategies at a more granular level.

The program has been specifically structured to cover contemporary, region-specific issues to help attendees determine strategies and solutions for the year ahead and beyond. Some of the topics scheduled for discussion at March's event include: How to Manage and Monetize Your Mobile Data Traffic; LTE (4G) Migration; Preparing for the Mobile Broadband Tidal Wave; ICT and Network Infrastructure: How Brazil Is Getting Ready; Customer Centricity; Converged and Real Time Billing and Charging; VAS for Mobile Telephony in Latin America; and Mobile Network Optimization - Addressing Network Challenges in the Mobile Internet Era.

As with each and every event, there will be an unprecedented delegation of thought leaders attending, including: Carlos Raimar, CSO for Telefonica Vivo; Wesley Schwab, Head of Marketing Innovation for Telefonica Vivo; Marco Goncalves, Head of OSS for TIM Brazil; Virgilio Amarel, CTO for TVA; and Cecilia Pedraza, CTO for Cablemas. There will also be a selection of big-name sponsors at the event, including: Cognizant, Peer App, EMC, Oracle and Acme Packet.

Dan Acton, CTO/COO/Co-founder of Crown Interactive, was an attendee at last year's summit. He said: "The event has a very focused and a very time-efficient way of organizing workshops and meetings. At the same time, we have had the opportunity to delve into topics with those solution providers and service providers on some of the current topics of the day."

Agustin Muñoz was another attendee at last year's summit. In agreement, he says: "The event has been great - it's one of the best events I've ever been to of this kind. It's very important to us that we attend next year's summit as well."

Joseph DeForca, NG Telecoms LA 7 Project Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the event, says: "Latin America is currently an emerging market, and represents massive potential in the telecom sector. With this in mind, GDS International's NGT Latin America summit is set to utilize the wealth of opportunities on offer. We have an exceptional program lined up and some of the most influential delegates in the region scheduled for attendance - I believe this will be our best summit globally."
