2020 5G 100 List

Informa Tech are delighted to announce the release of the 2020 5G 100 List; an inaugural list of the 100 most influential people in the wide world of 5G products, technologies and services.


Bringing together work from across 5G World, Omdia, the 5G Exchange, Light Reading and Telecoms.com, the 5G 100 is a comprehensive overview of the biggest influencers in the 5G universe, encompassing those who have the voices to cut through the industry noise; they have the power to say where 5G could go next and enough people paying attention to them that what they say could happen.

The list has been compiled by 5G experts across Informa Tech, including journalists, editors and analysts, from an initial list of over 500 nominees.

As Phil Harvey, Editor-in-Chief at Light Reading put it “As you’d expect, there are a few CEOs in this list, but you’ll also notice technologists, business development people who have engineering backgrounds, journalists, regulators, analysts and board-level executives who we wouldn’t dare ignore if we’re trying to find out what’s coming next in this area. 5G is a global technology game changer, but it’s not hitting every geography in the same way, all at once. That’s why some folks on this list are in charge of networks that are still being built – and being vocal about what technologies they favour in their decisions. Some folks on this list are in charge of 5G networks that have millions of subscribers and are scaling up and out. Some are the stewards of the technologies that power all of this stuff and they’re definitely people you should watch”
