What they said
There are very many benefits of attending. Basically, benchmarking - we are learning what we don’t know and telling people what they don’t know, so we discuss many things, visit other stands, learn a lot about things which other people are doing and help each other., Chairman
Communications Authority of Kenya
This is a unique opportunity for us to be present with such a great number of like-minded individuals, and for an SME like us, it gives us a wonderful insight to see what our counterparts and peers are coming up with, and of course the main value is to network and gather as much experience and knowledge as we can in these few days., Business developer, Personal Video and ITU Telecom World 2015 showfloor participant
It is a unique chance for me to meet ministers and deputy ministers from different countries, and a wonderful platform for government representatives to have very fair feedback from industry representatives. We have a fantastic exhibition here which allows companies to share their technology vision for those who take regulatory decisions, to spend this time together and discuss all the opportunities to make the whole of mankind benefit from the future development of ICTs., Minister
Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications, Russian Federation
This particular ITU forum is one of the best. It’s important because it allows us to bring together our global customers, to demonstrate how the market and technology and our programmes have moved on, so that this partnership of companies and countries gets to learn. This collaboration can’t happen at any other event., President, Bus. & Network Consulting
ITU Telecom World is the only event that brings together a unique combination of ministers, professors from leading universities, very young innovators with bright ideas, very smart entrepreneurs with inspirational talents and passions to do new things in the ICT world, and of course also industry leaders from the private sector. This unique forum is the reason why we come every year, it is inspirational.
It’s important for the exchange of ideas, it builds our potential, it is good to learn from others, also from other people’s mistakes. It is the place where we have this brainstorming, and also see new ideas because the exhibition is very important, particularly with this focus on SMEs., President
Office of Electronic Communications, Poland
The value of attending has increased because we have such an alignment on the end goal today, so when we meet with ministers and other companies, we agree on the endpoint. How do we make the pieces of the complex world we live in world fit together to make things work? The value of being here is that many of the people who care about this are here in this building., VP and General Manager
This event is most valuable, it is a place where there is openness, everyone is welcome - governments, private sector, innovators, academics, technical people - and this multi-stakeholder spirit that ITU is now living is frankly the spirit of the new networked world in which we are living and I am delighted to be here., President and CEO
My aim here is to learn what is happening in other parts of the world. We have contacts in Europe, in the States, but sometimes we are missing the other perspectives and I am learning a lot on what is happening in Africa and parts of Asia, so there is a lot to learn, and also to share our experience so they can also learn from our failures., Head of Startup Europe Sector
The main value is meeting people, having an honest dialogue, you can programme meetings with many different people and stakeholders, attend interesting debates, participate in panels, and for me the value is the networking, the people., Global Director
