Get ready to interact with 13 top-notch speakers in 14 days

This main symposium of 2021 will give a state of affairs on fiber.

What is happening in the Belgian market and what are successful use cases? What is going to happen in the coming years in terms of fiber deployment?
What are the key technological evolutions? What bandwidths and service quality can be delivered on the networks of the future?
What is the status around regulation and the role of the different governments in Belgium? How can we ensure the rural parts are not forgotten?
What are other challenges Belgian players face in their ambition to roll out fiber? What are the practical day-to-day challenges of actually installing that fiber in the streets?

More than 10 top-level speakers will share their view, plans and experiences in live presentations during the different sessions of the event. Confirmed speakers include Petra De Sutter (Minister of Telecommunication), Geert Standaert (CTO Proximus), Hans Witdouck (CEO Eurofiber Belgium) and Annick Martin (CEO Besix).

The event ends with a reception and walking dinner to network with both speakers and more than 200 attendees active in the fiber market today.
