Dear ETIS Community,

I'm happy to announce that this year's ETIS Community Gathering will take place in Lisbon, Portugal from the 18th to 19th of October. The theme of the conference will be, “Taking the Lead in the Age of Digital Disruption and AI,” so the discussions will focus on how telecom operators can go beyond connectivity and pursue digital services in which they have a competitive advantage. Some of the hot topics that will be discussed include blockchain, artificial intelligence, IoT, fintech, NFV & SDN, data privacy and security, to name a few.
Now more than ever, this two-day event presents an invaluable networking and knowledge sharing opportunity for all of you. Meetings will be designed to be interactive with tangible, concrete takeaways and solutions derived from workshops and roundtable discussions. Partnerships and other collaboration opportunities will be discussed and participants will gain deeper insight into trends, discuss challenges and share best practices with their peers across Europe.

As usual the Gathering will be kicked-off by a common session featuring a renowned keynote speaker. We will also feature the local innovation scene with the inclusion of Portuguese start-ups working in areas relevant to Telcos. Portugal has indeed many innovation hubs and is a frontrunner in Europe with FTTH (Fiber-To-The-Home). I am sure the local partners will provide an inspiring and important contribution to our Gathering, just like in Tallinn last year.

Please block the Gathering dates already in your agenda. The program will be sent in June.

Looking forward to see you in Lisbon!

Kind regards,
Wim De Meyer
Managing Director
