GDS International Invites Top Telecom Executives Throughout North America to its NG Telecoms Summit in June
NEW YORK, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
On the 18-20 June, the Barton Creek Resort & Spa, in Austin, Texas, will play host to
a 65-strong consortium of C-level executives and corporate officers from the nation’s most
innovative and cutting-edge Telecoms companies, attending the latest Next Generation
Telecoms Summit. Positioned at the very pinnacle of industry movements, this year’s Summit
promises to continue its trend as the most well respected event for the Telecoms industry
in the US.
Top C-level executives will be present to discuss cutting-edge business challenges,
ranging from LTE evolutions and smart technologies, to OSS, BSS and billing to name but a
The Summit combines high-level roundtable discussions with next generation solutions
that, together with the Director of Telecoms events for GDS International, Ryan Kanis,
have been championed by the Summit’s very own NG20 – populated with the industry’s
best-in-class thought leaders – who have helped play a pivotal part in shaping the
Summit’s two-and-a-half day agenda.
Included within the Summit’s senior executive delegation are Erez Yarkoni, CIO for T
Mobile USA; Windstream’s SVP Network Services & Technology, Bill Bellando; John Saw, CTO
for Clearwire Corporation; AT&T’s AVP for Cloud Technology, Strategy & Planning, Toby
Ford; and Sekar Swaminathan, CTO at MegaPath.
Daryll Ladd, VP Global Network Operations at Time Warner Cable, who attended last
year’s Summit at The Four Seasons Hotel in Miami, had this to say: “The vast majority of
people I’ve met here are VP level and above like myself, and so we get to talk at depth
about real issues and real business.”
Conflating this, Simon Marwood, CEO of Scorecard Systems, said: “It’s far better
organized than a lot of other things we’ve done; there’s a flow to it that, combined with
the level of one-to-one meetings, offers an exposure that you just don’t get from big
tradeshow environments. The quality of the delegates has been very good, with a spread of
CIOs, CXOs and Heads of Marketing – so the level of people coming in is helpful for
everyone involved. We’ve started business relationships with people that we didn’t even
know about before coming here.”
Indeed, the event has been designed specifically for the forward-thinking senior
executives in the US Telecoms arena, drawing on experiences and discussing challenges
facing the sector. The NG Telecoms Summit will offer comprehensive one-to-one meetings to
give delegates the opportunity to meet with business analysts and solution providers to
discuss strategy and technological demands in the industry’s rapidly evolving landscape.
Ryan Kanis, Director of US Telecoms Summits at GDS International – the global B2B
events firm behind the NGT US Summit – believes the high calibre of speakers and
exceptional content, combined with excellent opportunities for networking, give the
delegates and sponsors true value for money and a significant return on their investment.
“We are extremely excited for the upcoming North American Next Generation
Telecommunications Summit. With pertinent topics being discussed onsite surrounding the
very real and common pain points our senior level executives are currently dealing with in
the region, the Summit also serves to facilitate the industry’s real-time conversation.
Sponsors such as Oracle, Sybase, Ciena Wireless and PeerApp will be running workshops that
grasp the main investment priorities our wireless, fixed line and broadband providers have
highlighted during our various pre-event Advisory Board meetings.
“With such a dynamic mix of CIOs, CTOs and SVPs of Network Operations amongst a host
of other influential executives – along with Courtney Monroe, Group VP of Global
Telecommunications with our analyst partners, IDC – we have helped shape a phenomenal
agenda that I am confident will be the best summit we have run to date.”
