Recent BASE Events

BASE 2018 Athens - that was great - more please!

There's no doub't that having more than 300 attendees show up on a Friday and Saturday in a new location, meant that the BASE buzz had to be catching on. That's what happened in Athens this year. Not only did those attending find out about the latest in technology innovation and implementation but they asked for more. In our exit survey, 98% of attendees said they would attend another base event and the rating of the quality, content and value was also top notch. Prior to Athens we ran a standing-room only event in San Diego. 

The goal is to both to educate and to raise awareness of all things new in Broadband as we continue on the mission for a connected world with no-one left behind.

 

Next up - BASE Las Vegas

You asked for it, so the next BASE event will be held in Las Vegas Ocober 28th at the Encore Hotel. The timing for the event could not be better. BASE Las Vegas comes hot on the heels of October announcements and demonstrations of new Open Broadband initations and also immediately after the BBF's special bi-annual industry think-tank on the Broadband ecosystem.

Event Registration: The event is a registration only event open to industry attendees. Registration will open shortly
