Making the right connections makes for success in business and partnerships. That's why networking has always been at the heart of ITU Telecom events.


ITU Digital World 2021 takes place online - and so does your opportunity to meet, continue the conversation after each session, and connect with speakers, peers and other participants.

Where and when?

Join the informal online networking session on the Gather Town video chat platform at the end of each Forum debate. You can then speak on a one-to-one basis with other participants, join in a group discussion, visit thematic spaces, explore SME stands - and experience our 50th anniversary celebrations.


Simply click on the networking link in the chat after each Forum debate. Enter your name and choose an avatar to log in to the platform and start exploring. You don't need to install anything or download any software - you just need a web browser, a desktop or laptop with a microphone and camera, and perhaps some headphones.

Move your avatar around the ITU Digital World 2021 virtual space using the arrow keys. You can video chat to anyone near to you either individually or in a group, move in and out of different rooms, and click on objects to open videos, web links and other information.

Join speakers, participants, moderators and ITU staff online for all the benefits of in-person networking - virtually.
