Hosted by The Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) with the support of The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), this will be the first time a 5G conference of this scale has taken place in the Southern Hemisphere - a very exciting move for the event and for everyone associated with it.

 

The world is now less than 2 years away from the first commercial deployment of 5G, and the reality of this new dawn is fast approaching. Against this backdrop, the focus of the 5G Huddle this year will be on ‘5G For All’ and on delivering a 5G infrastructure that meets the needs of all use cases and is fully inclusive including needs of developing countries.

Brussels Tech Summit

 

The Tech Summit (formerly the Digital Festival) was launched in Brussels in 2016 and has gathered over 1000 people each year, creating a space in the heart of Europe and EU law-making where people can get excited about and be inspired by tech again by exploring its significant impact on people and society.

 

"This event presents a great opportunity to celebrate the best and brightest, inspiring others to achieve greater things." 

 

The Summit provides a unique opportunity to connect with fellow digital enthusiasts working at the most creative and vibrant edge of European tech. By bringing people together ranging from the smallest start-ups, to regulators, to the biggest corporates, we can start to bring the digital and tech worlds to life for those who influence it and regulate it.

Diversity in Tech - Creating a more diverse and inclusive digital community

 

For Europe to reach its full potential as a global leader in technology in the digital economy, it must urgently address the digital skills crisis we have faced for the past few years, especially taking into account the current unemployment rates across the continent.  As Vice President Ansip pointed out in a blog post: "By 2020, it is estimated that there will be a shortage of more than 800,000 skilled ICT workers. If we are not filling these jobs, then we are losing them - and damaging Europe's competitiveness at the same time". Now more than ever is a crucial time for policy-makers, national, local governments, educations bodies and the industry to come together to develop long-standing strategies to engage with the most underrepresented groups in tech, in order to attract, retain and progress a more diverse workforce. This inclusive tech workforce will play a central role in driving innovation in the fastest growing sector of our economy.
