The One & Only Cloud Computing Event for Telco Professionals
Welcome back to the 5th Annual Telco Cloud World Forum – an event unlike any other cloud show out there!
TCWF is the meeting place for the Telco Cloud community, and the one & only event to explore cloud computing from the perspective of the telecom operators.
Buzzy and invigorating, the world’s leading Telco Cloud event once again broke records in 2013! In its 4th edition, the Telco Cloud World Forum boasted another record-breaking year of growth, with 250+ delegates from 60+ countries, including representatives from 100+ different telecom operators!
Building on the success of our previous events, the 2014 edition has evolved in line with this rapidly developing market, and now that the industry has moved past the idea and theory stages, we will dig down in to how to develop Telco Cloud, and ultimately, where the money is.
Our theme for 2014 - Telco Cloud 2.0 - Show me the money will uncover the latest Telco Cloud strategies and success stories. If you want to hear the latest developments and cutting-edge case studies in Telco Cloud, delivered by C-Level speakers from across the entire Telco Cloud ecosystem, then Telco Cloud World forum is the only event that you need to attend!

“It's a good mixture of telecoms operators and vendors and what I like about it is the mix of all potential people in the ecosystem that you meet accidentally while you are here. I've had some really good discussions with most of them I've met. It's also nice to hear the analyst discussion too and some of the larger operators talk about their experience. “
Mansoor Basha, Ooredoo Group
“This is the fourth time I've been to this event. What I like about this show is the level of energy you get in the networking opportunities but also the fact that people are speaking candidly about how they can improve their business and what they can learn from each other.”
Alain Decartes, Global Industry Software Marketing, Communications Media Entertainment Lead, HP Software Marketing
“I think it's a great show because there are many telcos and many partners in the room. The networking time is very long which is excellent so you get chance to meet players you have not met before so you can find new partners and discuss experiences. I actually just met our Egyptian partner Mobinil, which I've never met before.”
Axel Haentjens, Vice President Cloud Computing, Orange Business Services
"It's my first time at the show but this is the final destination for cloud and you shouldn't miss it.”
Orcun M. Ozalp, Head of New Telco Products and Solutinos Marketing, Turkcell
“There's a real diverse bunch of people here and it's good to meet many of my fellow telcos. The people standing up and presenting have got a lot of experience. The whole ecosystem is well represented.”
Martin Chadban, Head of Cloud Services, Business Products and Services, Vodafone Group
“As a telco it's extremely useful to come to this show and see what your peers are doing and to share their experience. No one can do this by themselves, it's all about the value chain and what different partners specialise in.”
Tim Marsden, Global Cloud Services Director, Telefonica Digital
"This event has a refreshing focus on facilitating valuable networking, whilst maintaining a high quality of content and learning. In my view, this is the golden nugget of achieving event ROI."
