RAI Exhibition & Convention Centre, Amsterdam

Executive Summit


Invite-only, private networking and debate forum for C-level Executives

The Executive Summit is a highly exclusive, C-level event, which has been a key feature of the Broadband World Forum for the past six years. In 2014, for the first time, the Executive Summit will serve as an annual meeting point for the Broadband 100 who will be joined by other high profile guests of the show.

Held to Chatham House Rule, the Summit is highly valued for the quality, openness and honesty of the interaction between executives who rarely achieve this level of engagement with their peers. This private environment delivers superior networking opportunities and guarantees the high quality of conversation; this is a place where the industry’s top names come together to talk, debate and challenge the status quo.
