For 2022 the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) has partnered with Network X to host the Wireless Global Congress EMEA.

The rollout of 5G and WiFi 6 convergence, the development of OpenRoaming™, enterprise WiFi solutions and more means Network X will be the perfect complement for the Wireless Global Congress 2022. Thanks to Network X's dedicated fixed-line, wireless and telco cloud segments, the co-location will enable the Wireless Global Congress to connect new operator and vendor audiences, further promote the latest developments, standards and work across WiFi and have deeper engagement with wider industry stakeholders - all in one location!

The Wireless Global Congress will take place in the same hall as Network X, so you can expect a dedicated show floor theatre and exhibition zone for all Wireless Global Congress attendees, sponsors and exhibitors as well as the additional footfall, exposure and branding that Network X will bring.

Join us face to face in Amsterdam on 19-20 October at the world’s premier event for Wi-Fi and hear directly from enterprises, operators, device manufacturers, service providers and the expert organisations that serve them.

"Network X is delighted to be partnering with the Wireless Global Congress this October. The WGC’s technical expertise, coverage and best-practice standards for non-residential WiFi is the perfect compliment to Network X this year. We look forward to welcoming WGC stakeholders, speakers and attendees to the event this year where the global telecommunications community will meet in person."

Sam Oakley, Senior Director Events Service Provider, Informa Tech

“We are delighted to be partnering with Informa Tech for delivery of our autumn Wireless Global Congress EMEA event at Network X.  Bringing Wi-Fi together with complimentary technologies into the Operator community and the wider ecosystem will for the first time provide the widest insights for those attending Network X and a true platform for thought leadership and innovation"

Tiago Rodrigues, CEO, Wireless Broadband Alliance
