Miami 2015

Miami 2015

WEDNESDAY 27-THURSDAY 28 may 2015

Innovation, investment incentives and internet governance: Policy and regulatory decision making in the emerging and developed American markets.
In May we returned to Miami for our second Telecommunications and Media Forum of 2015.

Miami is the gateway to the vibrant emerging markets of Central and Southern America and the Caribbean and we lined up speakers from across the region. The area is of great interest to private and public sector players as the growth potential and influx of new technologies disrupts established practices and provides policy challenges for regulators.

We provided simultaneous translation to ensure maximum value and involvement from the floor. We heard voices from Ecuador, Paraguay, St Lucia, Bahamas, Costa Rica and Nicaragua alongside the bigger players from Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Jamaica, Chile and Peru.


KEY DISCUSSION THEMES

 National and international connectivity: progress with accessibility and affordability
