The 6G Global Summit returns, this time hosted by Ofcom UK in London

7 March 2024

The 6G Global Summit will return on 21 – 22 May as a hybrid event, hosted by Ofcom UK. This year’s edition benefits from a hybrid format, enabling delegates to attend the event in person, at the Pullman St Pancras in London, or online using our virtual platform.

 

All around the world, work on developing the 6G vision is picking up pace. We are on the brink of a new era of connectivity that promises to revolutionise industries and transform the way we live, work and communicate. 

The 6G Global Summit will bring together top-level industry and policy representatives from all around the world to explore the path to 2030 and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Early visions and research on future 6G technologies and requirements will be discussed, along with the key drivers, applications and use cases that are emerging.

With sustainability expected to be at the heart of 6G, there is the potential over the next few years to build an ecosystem that helps to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges. This will be the opportunity to join key global leaders at the 6G Global Summit, and be part of shaping a better future with 6G.

Get inspired by this year’s key themes, including…
