New to the TowerXchange community? Then let us explain the unique format and focus of a TowerXchange Meetup!
What is a Meetup?
At other telecom events, tower infrastructure is typically hidden away as an under-appreciated small part of a broader show. The huge audience of device and VAS influencers at other events dilutes access to the few tower experts and decision makers present. In comparison, TowerXchange has been described as a networking club for tower geeks
everyone you meet at TowerXchange is focused on towers.
A small number of panel discussions are used to set the scene - inviting MNO and towerco VIPs to share priorities in optimising their assets and examining transactions, rollouts and densification plans that
are creating demand and deal flow for the supply chain.
The real feature of a Meetup are small roundtable breakouts - connecting you directly and and in an intimate format with peers, key decision makers and leading experts. TowerXchanges renowned roundtable breakouts are led by an expert moderator, but everyones opinions and questions are welcomed. Each roundtable focuses on a specific country, financial, operational or technological issue. With the ability to attend four roundtables at each Meetup, participants can tailor their agenda to their exact needs.
Roundtables are complemented by invitation-only working groups, bring together a board of MNO and towerco technical experts (and select managed service providers) with responsibility for trialling, procuring and using energy equipment and/or site monitoring and management platforms.The working groups are designed to cut through the sales patter of equipment vendors, eliciting in the field experiences of end users and acting as a unified voice to drive technology evolution.
Whats more, as the only event dedicated to the telecom tower industry - each Meetup boasts an exhibition of the most important suppliers and service providers supporting the industry and with participation from vendor companies strictly limited, there are at least as many buyers as sellers on site!
If your role encompasses telecoms infrastructure - this is one event you cant afford to miss!
