Baku. Elmin Ibrahimov – APA-Economics. The 6th annual Eurasia Com congress and exhibition will gather 500 telecoms decision-makers in Istanbul 23-24 March 2010 to debate the commercial challenges, opportunities and position of the whole telecoms market of the Caspian and Central Asia.

Now a cut above the competition, the 2 day conference agenda is led by a speaker panel of 45 including 25 CxO level representatives from the most dynamic operators in Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazahkstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina. A staggering 14 new operator companies and 5 new countries will join a well established line-up at the 6th annual event. The rest of the panel comprises representatives from all strata of the telecoms ecosystem including regional Ministers, regional and international investors, solutions and technology providers and “crystal ball” analysts that will deliver valuable market predictions.

“This year’s speaker line-up really positions Eurasia Com as THE must-attend event in the region,” said Julie Rey, Conference Director, Eurasia Com. “We are pleased to welcome new speakers from countries not represented in the past, namely: Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Macedonia and Romania. The more extensive speaker panel derived from all levels of the telecoms ecosystem will deliver the broadest perspective and richest possible learning, best practice sharing and networking experience for all 500 attendees.”

For the first time, the conference will feature speakers from the following regional operator market leaders: Vodafone Turkey, Romtelecom (Romania), Dardafone Telecom (Kosovo), Altel (Kazakhstan), Yota (Russia), Makedonski Telecom (Macedonia), Avea (Turkey), SuperOnline (Turkey), Borusan Telekomm (Turkey), Doğan Telekom (Turkey), Trabzonspor Telekomünikasyon (Turkey), Koç.net (Turkey), Neotel (Macedonia), Vtel (Georgia).

They join representatives of international corporations with a presence across the region, such as MTS, Altimo and Turkcell, as well as national incumbent operators (KyrgyzTelecom, RomTelecom, Tajiktelecom, Türk Telekom), competitive operators (Azerbaijan’s Bakcell and Aztelecom, Georgia’s Vtel), ISPs, MVNOs etc.

Gathering in Istanbul, 23-24 March, the Eurasia Com speaker panel will share their experiences, strategies and ideas with a delegation of 500 telecoms decision makers with a foothold and vast experience in the market. Focused on the most pertinent issues facing all parts of Eurasian communications, the agenda addresses technology developments, new services, strategies to maximise cost-efficiency, as including special sessions on niche topics such as LTE, MVNOs, mobile marketing and more.

There are 14 new features for 2010 but most significantly, the congress includes a special Turkey Focus Day, to look at the developments in what is the region’s leading market. The country’s top operators (Türk Telekom, Turkcell, Avea and Vodafone) will present their companies’ strategies and be joined by alternative operators (Borusan Telekom, Doğan Telekom), ISPs (Superonline) and MVNOs (Trabzonspor Telekomünikasyon) to discuss key subjects such as convergence, competition levels, new market opportunities, consumer requirements and more.

As well as being a unique learning opportunity, EurasiaCom is a one-stop-shop for telecoms professionals to network and develop their business with all parts of the telecoms ecosystem. In March, 500 participants from across Europe, Central Asia and beyond will benefit from dedicated interaction and contact building time, thanks to interactive sessions in the conference: ‘XING networking game’ organised by event social networking partner XING, online networking system and informal meeting times such as the drinks reception at the panoramic Summit Bar of the Conrad Hotel where the congress is being held.

The un-paralleled speaker line-up makes Eurasia Com THE must-attend annual meeting place for anyone working in or looking to do business in this region’s telecoms sector. Now is a great time to tap into the potential and invest in your operations in these high-growth, under-penetrated markets. Opportunities exist for telecoms technology vendors to gain privileged access to the strong list of VIPs we are assembling and regional operators to develop their networks and services to drive more profitability from their operations.

Operators attend the event free of charge and there are early booking discounts for all others.
