Communications Policy & Regulation Week 2013
The Communications Policy & Regulation Week was attended by nearly 300 senior international players with 40% of the audience made up of c-suite national regulators. The Office of Communications (Ofcom) hosted the International Regulators' Forum in their offices by the River Thames, and a pre-Conference reception at The Globe Theatre, looking out to St Paul’s Cathedral. The IIC’s 44th Annual Conference encouraged a stimulating dynamic between the regulators and the rest of the audience, comprising senior level business strategists and academics from the TMT sector, industry associations and government departments. The mix made for stimulating, insightful presentations and discussions. The Week concluded with a workshop on personal data management and associated policy development.
Time was scheduled during the Week for members and delegates to meet privately with their regulatory counterparts in government and business thereby capitalising on the assembly of so many senior colleagues in the same city at the same time.
