Gavin Whitechurch, research director at Informa Telecoms & Media, commented: “This year’s enhanced event programme is set to make Broadband World Forum a truly global event. Our provisional agenda has already attracted high levels of interest from potential delegates and our exhibition is 80 per cent sold or reserved.

“Attendee figures are tracking well above previous years, and we hope that this exceptional level of early interest, along with the unrivalled speaker and exhibitor line up, will attract a record number of visitors to secure our place as the number one broadband show and establish us as the leading global telecommunications event.”

Broadband World Forum is this year celebrating its 10th anniversary and has long been established as the place to meet and discuss the commercial and technical opportunities, developments and issues surrounding broadband. The new conference structure for 2010 is in response to delegate feedback and now features analyst breakfast briefings, more keynote sessions, a choice of four conference tracks and a world-class exhibition including 280 companies. In addition the Broadband InfoVision Awards will now be presented during a full gala dinner cruise on the evening of day one.
