DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN THE EMERGING AND DEVELOPED AMERICAN MARKETS

This year’s Telecom & Media Forum will take place against a backdrop of turbulence - how might the new political and trade paradigm influence the digital agenda in the LatAm and Caribbean regions? Join us to discuss the latest priorities, challenges and opportunities for regulators and policy makers in the region and further afield. As in previous years, we provide simultaneous translation (English and Spanish) to ensure maximum value and involvement from the floor. Last year’s Forum included representation from over 30 countries across the Americas and we expect to welcome many new faces this year.  Once again the Forum will be preceded by the highly regarded Regional Regulators Forum which enables senior level regulators from across the Americas and beyond to share experiences and best practice in a relaxed, private setting.
