GDS International To Host Hotly Anticipated Seventh Next Generation Telecoms Latin America Summit In March

PANAMA CITY, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Sixty-five of Latin America's leading telecom executives will convene in Panama for two and a half days of focused workshops, peer led panel discussions and working lunches at GDS International's seventh Next Generation Telecoms Latin America summit.

This popular event will take place on the 18 th to the 20 th of March 2013 at the five-star InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa in Panama. Having previously run six successful NG Telecom summits in Latin America, this year's event also promises to be extremely valuable with attendees discussing the oncoming mobile broadband tidal wave and methods for managing and monetizing mobile data traffic. Delegates will also be looking at broader issues, including mobile network optimization, network challenges in the mobile Internet era, and VAS for mobile telephony in Latin America.

Dan Acton, CTO/COO/Co-Founder of Crown Interactive, was an attendee at the event last year. He said: "This event has a very focused and time efficient format. The workshops gave us the opportunity to dive into topics with both solution providers and service providers on some of the current topics of the day."

Attending NG Telecoms Latin America this year will be: Carlos Raimar, Chief Strategy Officer for Vivo; Andre Borges, Chief Strategy Officer for Oi; Ricardo Salas Cobos, COO for Iusacell; Jose Lecy, Head of New Technologies & Innovation for Vivo; and Marcos Goncalves, Head of OSS for TIM Brazil.

Nick Atrey, NGT Latin America Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the summit, says: "The Latin American market is going through an exciting period of growth and change, with new technologies such as 4G LTE are re-shaping the mobile landscape. These changes are creating new challenges for senior executives, tasked with maximizing revenues and improving business performance."

He continues: "This is a big part of the reason why the NG Telecoms Summit and our advisory board meetings have continued to deliver value and grow in stature over the years. We are confident that the summit will once again provide CTOs and leading technology vendors in the region with a strategic platform to discuss and debate their pain points, through our unique format of one-on-one meetings and end-user led workshop sessions."
