The sheer level of attendee at Big 5G is why some of the world's largest brands continue to invest. 

We make a point to cap the size of the event in favor of a much more focused audience of the most involved and influential telco operators.

Not only do we massively incentivize telcos to attend but we also manually vet each and every one to ensure that every conversation you have onsite has the potential to open doors.
