Building Corridors in Digital Development to Fulfill National Commitment”

Date:2017-02-21 10:20:32

SAMENA Telecommunications Council’s Beyond Connectivity conference is an annual event, bringing together senior to top-executives from regulatory bodies, telecom operator groups, technology companies, as well as other ICT industry players, including management consulting companies.
The goal of Beyond Connectivity is to serve as a knowledge-sharing platform and to convene industry experts together, to discuss industry matters and business areas of interest to the industry, while providing a networking platform for the Council’s members. A key outcome of the discussions of the BYC conference has been the escalation of industry priorities and issues to the decision-making and policy-making tiers of the ICT industry, triggering further policy-level dialogue on key matters, with the involvement of both private and public sector stakeholders.
The BYC conference has also served companies as a platform for announcing business partnerships. Various members of SAMENA Telecommunications Council have also used the strategically themed BYC events to showcase their innovations, new products and services.
