Debating in DC

Debating in DC

IIC’s winter TMF held in Washington was a star-studded event, with keynotes from the White House, the FCC chair, major industry players and key regulators. It was hosted by Verizon Communications.


Three keynote presentations kicked off the event with an overview of the goals and priorities of the current administration.
