Discover the future of North America’s mobile, fixed and cable sectors

For 2024, Informa Tech brings you Light Reading Network X Americas – the region’s most comprehensive B2B telecoms event, taking place in Texas, in the heart of the US ICT industry. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Irving in Dallas County, for 3 insight-packed days, from May 21-23, 2024. 

Building on the success of Big 5G 2023 in Austin, plus Informa’s decade-long legacy of high-quality US telecoms events, Light Reading Network X Americas will bring together key industry players, covering North America’s entire telecoms ecosystem.  

For the first time in the US, we’ll be covering all the major news from the mobile, fiber and cable sectors, all within the same event.  

Join us to hear from 150+ expert speakers representing all aspects of North American telecoms, as they share their insider knowledge on our 3 major event themes:  

  • Wireless Network Evolution
  • Broadband Access 
  • Cloud and Edge  

We know industry concerns are moving beyond 5G – and our event has evolved to reflect the changing needs, and concerns, of American telecoms, including the current focus on broadband expansion in the US and Canada.  

Our event will not only address the next stages of mobile deployment, and the latest news on the telco to techco transformation. This year, we will also bring you valuable insights on fixed networks in North America, from BEAD and BABA through to fixed wireless access and next-gen PON upgrades. 

This event is brought to you in partnership with Light Reading, the leading B2B telecoms news source in the US, alongside its sister company and research brand Heavy Reading. This collaboration enables us to bring you the highest calibre of news and analysis on the current state of the telecoms industry. With the support of our media and research experts, we will be covering the most important future trends and risks in the American market.
