Intersecting Technology, Application and Aspiration for a Broadband Enabled Future

20 years of BBWF bringing you the latest trends, technologies, challenges and monetisation opportunities

UPCOMING FREE WEBINAR - CONNECTED HOME: PARTNERSHIPS POST COVID-19 (15 JULY, 12:00 PM BST)

Join our expert panel in discussing how operators are meeting the exponential customer demand for home connectivity. We'll be addressing the key challenges to delivering new services and quality of experience, and how operators are developing new partnerships to ensure more people and devices are supported.

WE'RE GOING FULLY VIRTUAL

The Broadband World Forum team has been focused on assessing and developing appropriate plans to deliver a safe and successful event in 2020. As the global situation with Covid 19 continues to be carefully managed, we feel it is in the best interest of our community, many of whom travel internationally to attend, to now move forward and transform Broadband World Forum into an online, fully virtual event for 2020.

Informa Tech has a wealth of experience in building successful digital communities and we are confident in delivering the same level of high-quality content, product demonstrations and networking that our attendees have come to expect every year.

Our mission is to provide a platform to help our partners come together, build relationships and ensure the innovation, change and progress within our industry continues throughout and beyond these challenging business conditions. We believe in the power of our community to share, inspire, and strengthen the industry and we are committed to providing this opportunity in October.

We'll be releasing more information on the new, virtual edition in the coming weeks.

When will the event take place now?

BBWF will take place from 13-15 October 2020, and will be available through our virtual event platform.
