Welcome to Broadband World Forum’s Debut in London!

8000+ Visitors

Broadband World Forum is renowned as one of the world’s largest telecoms, media & technology events. Pulling over 8000 senior executives from across the globe to London’s ExCeL this year to bring fixed mobile convergence to life!

This year we witnessed an unprecedented keynote line up with a suite of C-Level executives representing a selection of the world’s largest operators. Complimented with over 300 cross-industry speakers and 35 conference sessions.
Alongside our conference, BBWF offered exhibition visitors an unbeatable 3 day experience bursting with free content, inspiring interviews, analyst insights and live demos. The exhibition itself boasts over 130 exhibitors, demonstrating their latest innovations, including IoT, Interoperability and Virtualization pavilions.

With just over 8,000 attendees from fixed, mobile and cable operators, OTTs and other market disruptors, national and international governments and the world’s leading solution providers, BBWF was the only event to attend this year. Be sure to attend next year’s show in the London ExCeL on 18th-20th Oct 2016, anticipated to be our biggest ever show.
