The One & Only Cloud Computing Event for Telco Professionals
A huge thank you to all of the sponsors, speakers and delegates that took part in our most successful Telco Cloud World Forum to date! The forum found a new home for 2014 in Munich and welcomed the highest number of delegates to date – with over 400 attendees across all 3 days.
The Pre-Event Masterclasses proved to be a huge hit with our attendees, led by the Open Data Center Alliance, AppDirect and Huawei.
Our key theme for 2014 was Show me the money and featured success stories and keynotes from Telefónica, Orange, Amazon Web Services, Belgacom, Bouygues Telecom, Google and more. New themes for 2014 included the Tech Cloud stream, covering SDN & NFV with sessions led by The Open Networking Foundation, SK Telekom, Deutsche Telekom, Ovum and the Fraunhofer FOKUS Institute.
And we can’t neglect to mention our largest and most active speed networking sessions to date – which proved to be a fantastic way for our delegates to meet, exchange ideas as well as business cards and contacts!
Don’t worry if you missed out, the Telco Cloud World Forum returns to Germany again in 2015 for its 6th year – a definite must-attend event for all of those involved with Telco Cloud!
See you next year!
