New partnership will see Broadband Forum lead and grow the event with TNO playing a supporting role to ensure continuity and ongoing success
Focused on thought leadership, innovation and sharing best industry practices for mass broadband deployment, the three-day Ultrafast Broadband Seminar has established a reputation for excellence and built a strong following over its ten-year history. Last year’s event attracted around 150 attendees, and included operators, regulators, R&D engineers, equipment manufacturers, analysts and standards organizations from around the globe.
TNO and Broadband Forum have agreed that, starting in 2019, Broadband Forum will take the lead in organizing the annual seminar – which will continue to take place in The Hague – while TNO will stay on board as a partner to ensure continuity in the program quality and event content.
The Broadband Forum and TNO have collaborated over many years to develop this worldclass broadband seminar and I’m delighted that TNO will remain a key part of this event going forward. I look forward to future events in the beautiful city of The Hague which will be based on TNO’s successful recipe honed over the last decade.
Broadband Forum has been a co-organizer of the Ultrafast Broadband Seminar since its inception in 2009. Transferring the organization of the Ultrafast Broadband Seminar from Dutch technology institute TNO to Broadband Forum will widen the global audience for the event.
Offering a range of keynote speeches and break-out sessions, the Ultrafast Broadband Seminar has always proved very popular and in evaluations, the seminar scores are consequently very high for overall content and networking opportunities. With Broadband Forum’s standing in the industry and its wide scope of work and membership, we are confident that this new agreement will see the event reach new heights and secure its continued success for many years to come.
The Ultrafast Broadband Seminar 2019 will be held in The Hague from June 25 to 27.
