“Innovation today in a world that is always changing is a fundamental part of the digital transformation which has been the main topic of this Telecom Review Summit today. Technology innovation seems to be happening rapidly when we look around us and see all the various applications that are being birthed every day. But I believe the challenge today is how we integrate this into society. As you can see from the Summit today, the quality of the people and the level of the people and the way that the debates were opened, shows that this Summit is a very good opportunity to spend the day learning about technology innovation and bouncing around great ideas.”

“I love the theme of “smart networking” because I truly care about the telecom industry. I care deeply about the topic. I had the good pleasure and honor to speak with a few board members of Etisalat and du, and I must say I was very impressed by the long-term view that they take on what a great country looks like and how a great society looks. They then also balance that with very short-term investments in everything which is available today to help the country move forward with digital technology; whether it’s around data analytics, whether it’s around application development or whether it’s around fast-networks. I was very impressed by the presentations and wanted to be a part of this.”

“I’m pleased to be here again at the Telecom Review Summit, sponsoring this event and even this time live streaming it worldwide on fixed and mobile devices. It’s such a great networking event, where it’s possible to meet in one day all the who’s who in the telco business from the region. This year’s session is even taking this event one step higher in terms of richness of the agenda and increased C-level attendees! Looking forward already to next year’s event!”

“Thank you Telecom Review for holding such a good summit where I can meet so many Middle East ICT Industry C-Level people from government individuals, to operators, to consultants, various organizations and partners. For Huawei, we have had the chance to talk about our version on Digital Transformation and appeal the ICT Industry to build a better connected Middle East together. May the Huawei and Telecom Review partnership deepen and prosper in the foreseeable future.”

“I think the Telecom Review Summit brings together a very unique and broad gathering of CEOs and VPs from different sectors, suppliers and operators. It provides an excellent opportunity to network with different operators and suppliers – very beneficial. I find it very interesting and encouraging being here today.”

“We were honored to be asked to participate in the panels today about smart cities. We’ve been doing a lot of work at PCCW Global related to smart data. I think bringing together the fixed mobile broadband data and using it for our internal use is related to what we wanted to talk about today. One of the challenges we have faced this year is piracy which I spend a lot of time dealing with, so it was good to listen in to the panels today and learn from other peoples’ experience dealing with issues that we have been dealing with.”

“The Telecom Review Summit sets a new benchmark to event organizers. The Summit brings in all the regional and global telecom leaders to provide a think-tank that addresses the key issues and challenges the telecom industry is facing. The Summit, while it has a scale of a conference, still addresses the key topics as an executive roundtable through the panel formats. And the demo area is a huge success! Best of luck on TR Summit 2016!”

“As VAS professionals, we always look forward to innovate and create new products for the Telecom Operators in the Region. Telecom Review Summit is one of the best events that gather all the Telecom Professionals in the region, discuss the opportunities and how they can encounter the threat of OTT, the threat of increasing revenues, etc. We usually benefit a lot from this Summit Network to showcase our products, engage with top players in telecom, and meet potential clients and partners. All topics were interesting to hear about and participate in; however, the discussion of the importance of e-commerce was very interesting since it covers many sectors we are involved in: mobile apps, mobile payments, operator billing, products and development.”
