Broadband World Forum has evolved from a pure fixed operator audience to include cable, mobile, and converged operators. Operators, ISPs and cable providers are joined by public sector officials, policy makers, technology vendors and solutions providers to create a rich audience mix.

21% of our audience is C-Suite and 53% is Director level or above, attracting C-level execs from Deutsche Telekom, Telefonica, Orange and Vodafone, who make up our audience of over 4,500. 

Our attendees come from every continent, with over 100 countries represented onsite. And with more than 1,500 companies in attendance, it would take 6 phone calls per day for a year to connect with all of the organisations we have at BBWF!
