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 few.
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."
