Telecom Asia Awards & Conference
As the premier gathering of C-level executives in the region, Telecom Asia's Telco Strategies conference is a must-attend event for decision makers in the telecom industry. This year's 5th annual conference will bring together leaders from across Asia Pacific for two days of strategic thinking and discussions on which direction the industry is heading.
This year key themes will be organizational structures, launching digital services, streamlining process and the future M&A outlook.
The conference is held in conjunction with Telecom Asia's annual awards - the region's longest-running and most prestigious telecom industry awards. Now in their 16th year, they reward innovative and outstanding performance by Asian service providers and industry executives.
