  • Regulators

    For regulators, governments and policy makers

    "There’s something unique and valuable about the exchanges at IIC events and I say that as somebody who has attended three of them in the past year, across different continents.  I think it’s one thing to read about developments in other countries on a website or on the printed page, but it’s another thing entirely to be able to meet you personally and hear about some of the challenges that you are confronting, and I think that speaks to a universal truth and that is that, while we may represent different countries, come from different cultures, speak different languages and have different customs...."  (2015)

    Ajit Pai
    Chairman, Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

  • Telecoms

    For operators and providers in the telecommunications, media and technology space (TMT)

    "We recognize the leadership and excellent organization of all IIC staff, which is quickly making TMF the most important venue for Americas regulatory industry. It was impressive to see all Latam Operators and several Authorities sharing this venue."

    Jose Luis Ayala,
    Head of Government & Industry Affairs for Latin America, Ericsson

     

  • Media

    "I found it completely worthwhile.  It was a very manageable, high quality environment.  It was wonderful to be able to meet so many people across the globe who are very relevant to the work I am doing at Facebook.."

    Monica Desai, 
    Director, Public Policy, Facebook

  • Professional Services

    FOR LAWYERS, ANALYSTS, ACADEMICS AND CONSULTANTS

    "It is the perfect way to get in touch with the different stakeholders of the industry and have an open dialogue about issues that in other circumstances everyone may not feel comfortable talking about."

    Antonio Garcia Zaballos,
    Telecommunications Lead Specialist – Leader of the Broadband Programme, Institutions for Development (IFD), Capital Markets and Finance (CMF), IADB

     

  • Academic

    "IIC provides a rare opportunity to hear candid self-assements of the regulators and exchange equally candid views of the industry and academics, which is exactly what we need in this day and age of changing alliances and political landscapes surrounding the global communications industry."

    Kyung-Sin Park,
    Director, Public Policy, Professor, Korea University School of Law
