Welcome to the conversation!

2013We’ve completely redesigned the web pages for this year’s event – as you’ll notice immediately if you’ve visited us before. And it’s not just about changing how it looks – it is part of our commitment to the one conversation that matters. Because this is just not an empty strapline. It’s our statement of intent and purpose.

The conversation at World 2013 matters because its theme, speakers and aim matter.

Experts from the public and private sectors, UN agencies, government ministers, regulators and industry representatives from across the entire ICT ecosystem will come together in Bangkok this November. Debates and conversations in the forum, in networking spaces and receptions, and on the central showfloor will focus on the radical transformation of the ICT industry.

On how we can make the most of the dramatic new opportunities being created to drive the success of the industry and, by extension, socio-economic development throughout the world.

And the website matters because, as our frontline communication tool, it needs to reflect what we’re about. Our commitment to conversation. Open to all, learning and understanding, not just imparting information. Sharing knowledge. Inclusive, interactive and important.

At ITU Telecom World 2012 in Dubai last October, we asked delegates to help us by completing a customer satisfaction survey, online or in person. This website overhaul is in part a direct response to requests for a clearer structure and easier navigation. We’ve listened to you and made changes.

But it doesn’t stop there. We are open for your comments, input, feedback. On any aspect of the event, from the central themes of the event to the website, from the programme to the practicalities of registration and travel. Keep the conversation going – directly to us at itutelecom@itu.int, through Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, or even through contributing a guest blog to these pages.
