New deadline for Global Telecoms Awards entries

Due to the unique circumstances faced by businesses across the globe this year we know it was very difficult for many to plan ahead. The Covid-19 pandemic and consequent international lockdown coincided with the window we usually allocate for entries to the Glotel Awards.

In acknowledgment of the dilemma faced by so many companies in the telecoms ecosystem, we have decided to significantly enlarge the entry window for the Awards. To give your innovations and business achievements the best possible chance at earning industry-wide recognition, we are resetting the entry deadline to 18 September 2020.

It has been a challenging year for everyone so far, but things seem to be returning to something approaching normal. The telecoms industry is a major contributor to this recovery and we feel it’s more important than ever to celebrate what we do. So have a great summer – you’ve earnt it – and maybe think about any products or services you would like to nominate for an award in September.
