SEPT 2015

The most important job of The Telecom Council is to connect new ideas and innovation in fixed and wireless telecom to the companies that need them. We do that several ways all year long: including meetings, online networking, research libraries, and the most fun – MATCHMAKING.The matchmaking we do at TC3 in a few weeks is kind of like business development speed dating. Global telcos and major vendors are currently updating the TC3 Meeting Maker toolwith their innovation priorities and innovators are updating the tool with their pitches. Then, on Sept 15 the speed dating begins as requests are accepted, declined and scheduled based on priorities and availability.In the end over 2000, 10-minute, private meetings will be facilitated at TC3 – truly a testament to the telcos and vendors who are actively scouting for innovation.

TC3 is on track to sell out, so register soon if you want to join us, Liz
