The conference, which is supported by Saudi Telecom Company as Patron this year, is the region’s premier international hub and agenda setting forum for the leadership of international telecom operators, financiers, investment bankers, lawyers and advisers, to debate financing and investment strategy.
“We are delighted to bring the annual Conference to Bahrain,” commented Dominic Lowndes, managing director at BroadGroup TMT Ventures. “The Middle Eastern region continues to grow in influence as a leading international IT and financial hub and its institutions will play a major role in supporting the global growth plans of telecom operators and their partners.”
The programme for 2011 reflects the global investment drive by major telecommunication operators in the region, as they develop new business models and capital raising strategies. Key themes include Global Strategy, Mergers and Acquisitions, Next Generation Business Models, Media and Convergence, Emerging Market Growth, Raising Finance, Technology Vision, Infrastructure Sharing, Broadband and Regulation, Mobile Devices and Applications, Data Centres and Cloud Computing.
“This is an absolutely critical period for telecom operators from the Middle East as they develop sustainable global business models in tandem with the major media, internet and technology players,” said Lowndes. “Bankers, financiers and lawyers will have a major part to play as mergers and acquisitions, capital raising strategies, and investment strategy will play a major role in deciding the winners.”
