The Summit

31st October - 2nd November 2011

NGT MENA Summit 2011

Summit Venue
The Meydan Hotel, Dubai

A unique market where timing and decision making will define the winners. MENA is the fastest growing market for both mobile and fixed telephony in the world. Liberalisation of the Middle Eastern market is prompting huge access and consumer demand. The growth and convergence of fixed mobile networks and services is the top priority for all operators and carriers.

This event was one of the best organised ones I have attended in a while. A great opportunity for networking and collaboration among folks and decision makers that share common interests.

Excellent organisation by the GDS Team. There was a good structure to the meetings with adequate time to explore partnership opportunities with each operator. The evening events also made it easy to network with delegates outside of the set meetings.

This was my first time in this summit I saw it different than other workshops in the way of handling the sessions and the different type of meetings (one to one). Organised, well timed, very beneficial for both vendors and operators.

A very well worthwhile trip, to meet high quality decision makers relevant to my business.

Excitor Alan Giles, VP Business Development

Honestly the event was well arranged and implemented its goals. The subjects discussed in the workshops were valuable and beneficial. The meetings were very useful that both the provider and the operator share the thoughts. The event was well organised and the most important thing is the staff are very skilful, cooperative and know how to manage the program very well.
