Supporting words from some of the events attendees:
“Ten years is a chunk of time in the lifecycle of an event that either ends as having outlived its usefulness, or as one that has leveraged its learning and maturity to offer a genuinely valuable experience. Informa’s LTE World Summit is definitely an event of the latter category. Each year it has improved in the quality of attendees, the level of speakers and presentations, and even in its range of marketing services to sponsors. LTE World Summit has become as valuable to F5 as a core network vendor as the Mobile World Congress. Many thanks to the very professional Informa team.”- Susan Becker, Product Marketing Director of the Diameter Signaling solution, F5 Networks
“Great opportunity to hear industry trends while networking.”– Benoit Widermann, Marketing Manager, Belgacom
“Good overview of what's happening in the world of LTE.” – Mark Caines, Director of Spectrum Policy, Ofcom
“A great event with great networking opportunities.” – Minoo Abedi, St. Analyst, T-Mobile Netherlands
“Really good event to exchange about network evolution and to share experiences.” – Vanesa Tornero Caballero, Orange
“By the far the best networking and influencing event for the global LTE industry, never to be missed.” – Alan Hadden, Chair, GSA
“An interesting medley of various ecosystems from the mobile world, explaining various technology advancements and expressing different views, opinions and suggestions.” – Zahid Ghadialy, Managing Director/CTO, eXplano Tech Limited
