Event Highlights

New Host City for 2017

Broadband World Forum moves to Berlin for 2017

After 2 years in London, the event moves back to mainland Europe. It is an exciting year to move to Germany following the announcement that German Federal Ministries will invest 20 billion Euro to roll-out Gigabit Connectivity to Germany, further backed by 80 million from the private sector. 

Your 2020 Toolkit: Our strongest agenda yet

Year on year Broadband World Forum delivers an industry leading agenda that encompasses the latest challenges, solutions and innovations that are facing the fixed line community.

As industry focus evolves, so does our content, we ensure to stay on the front line of industry developments to ensure that we provide a valuable, educational experience for our audience. Upgrading to next generation networks and virtualization remain core themes of the conference and will remain important tracks on the agenda but for 2017 we have added new content to look beyond telco connectivity and help businesses identify new revenue opportunities from both consumers and enterprises, enabled by faster speeds.

Delegates are able to attend any of these sessions across the entire conference.
