ITU Telecom in words
Nelson Mandela, Bob Kahn, King Juan Carlos I, Bill Gates... They've all had their say at our events.
ITU Telecom events have helped connect the unconnected and spread the benefits of ICTs since 1971. They have offered a window for the world onto a rapidly evolving ICT industry, helping showcase, debate and set the agenda for the development of new technologies from mobile or Internet to broadband, AI, 5G and beyond.
Fifty years of change. In technology, Telecom events, industry structure and international reach.
All reflected in our poster, logo and branding design.
