More information


Taking place just a few months before the crucial World Radiocommunication Conference 15 in Geneva, this event offered the opportunity to look forward at what the likely outcomes and decisions would be, and at what this will mean for stakeholders in the Middle East and North Africa.


In additon, the conference looked at other key spectrum issues for the region, such as the work that is being done in the UHF band to find a long term 'win-win' solution for all stakeholders; as well as meeting the spectrum requirements of the technologies of the future (with a specific focus on how to licence spectrum for IoT technologies; and on delivering the spectrum to maximise the potential of 5G).


With a highly interactive format, plus more than 4 hours of networking time (including a welcome drinks reception, held on the evening prior to the event), this conference offered the opportunity to meet and discuss the key issues with decision and policy makers from throughout the region.
