HONG KONG, January 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

On the 12th to the 14th of March 2013, 65 of Asia's most influential thought leaders will head to the SkyCity Marriott hotel in Hong Kong, for what promises to be the most important telecoms event in Asia this year - GDS International's sixth Next Generation Telecoms Asia summit (NGT Asia 6).

The upcoming summit will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage in focused conversation with their peers through a range of formats, ranging from roundtables to one-on-one meetings. Working towards common goals ensures that everyone in attendance wants to, and can, leverage extended networking, going beyond the job title and building relationships that last. End user challenges are matched with the most relevant solutions from the industry's leading-edge providers, while five-star privacy and luxury ensures the very best in business conversation.

In attendance at this year's summit will be: Donald Tan, EVP for China Telecom Global; Phil Mottram, CEO for CSL; Henry Aguda, CIO for Globe Telecom; Charles Huh, VP Cloud Dept, Professional Service BU for KT Telecom; and Jeffery Gee, CSO & CTO for Fareastone. There will also be a dynamic range of sponsors in attendance, including: Oracle, APC, Capstone, Anritsu and CSG International.

Muneer Farooqui, CEO for Warid Telecom, was an attendee at last year's summit. He said: "Great event! It was interactive and informative. Limited participation was what I liked the most - it makes the interaction more personal. The team that conducted the event did an extraordinary job as well. They were all very cordial, friendly and cooperative. The personal touch was overwhelming. Keep meeting!"

The NGT Asia summit features a deeply researched programme that hones in on the most pressing issues currently being faced by executives in the sector. Amongst other issues, the upcoming event will host workshops and discussions on how to manage and monetise your mobile data traffic, with a focus on the reality of cloud computing for telecom operators. There will also be meetings on VAS for mobile telephony in APAC - the best alternative to falling voice revenues, 4G/LTE strategy and migration.

Marcus Sedman, NGT Asia Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the event, says: "Everyone we have spoken to, from the carriers to the solution providers, are really excited for the NGT Summit to commence. 65 of the top telecommunication executives will be coming together over two-and-a-half days to discuss, debate and benchmark with each other, whilst learning from leading solution providers who are focused on the APAC region."
