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. 

New Agenda, Fresh Content

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.  

Interactive Exhibition

The Broadband World Forum exhibition is the perfect place to experience the whole fixed line ecosystem under one roof. Meet and mingle with technology vendors, solutions providers, industry associations who are innovating and supporting developments in the space.

Live demos, proof of concept stations, association pavilions and guided demo tours will all be taking place to give our attendees a hands on experience of technology that is shaping our future connectivity.
