Post-Conference Workshop: A Spectrum Valuation Masterclass

This interactive 1/2 day workshop will take place on the morning of 16th June, immediately following on from the main conference. It will explore challenges and approaches to valuing spectrum, and answer questions such as:

What sources of value are created by acquiring spectrum? What scenarios should be considered? What are merits of various valuation approaches? How does valuation relate to bid values and auction budgets? Why is it important to value spectrum from the perspective of competitors?


The workshop will not only be aimed at bidders preparing for auctions, but also regulators designing auctions. A good understanding of potential bidders’ valuations is critical when designing an efficient auction.


The workshop will be led by Lee Sanders, Partner at Analysys Mason, who has conducted numerous projects throughout Europe to value spectrum, both for bidders and regulators preparing for auctions.
