ITU Telecom World 2014
What people said
"You meet the people that really influence the industry, in our experience they attend your lunches, and your dinners, they listen to what you say and they come back to ask you more detailed questions. So we always come here to showcase what we have and then to listen to what other people are doing and to learn from them."
– Dr Eugene Juwah, Executive Vice Chairman
Nigerian Communications Commission
"At Telecom World, you will find many ministers, vice ministers, permanent secretaries, these are decision makers for their countries, and we get a chance to meet with them, talk with them about their plans and share with them best practice, and very often there will be decisions made here that are then implemented later in the country. "
– John Davies, Vice President and General Manager, World Ahead Program
"Here is where people showcase new technologies, you come to meet the industry and its products, you come to network and to form new partnerships. It is important to attend ITU Telecom World for those partnerships and for networking."
– John Nasasira,
