We were delighted to host our largest ever crowd at an overseas ConneXion. Our delegates came from across all regions of the world and enjoyed a three day event complete with conference sessions, partner presentations, workshops and lots of networking opportunities.
The event started with a keynote speech from our Executive Board and Director of the APAC region, where we announced the exciting news that we will be opening our first office outside of Switzerland, in the centre of Bangkok.
We then welcomed Loo Boon Chee from Bridge Alliance, Roula Mostratou from United Group, Michael Nelson from Telenor Linx and Johannes Opitz from Deutsche Telekom to the stage. They formed a lively and exciting panel discussion, focusing around the new ecosystem: challenges and opportunities for the future of roaming. Dhiraj Wazir from ROCCO acted as the moderator for the panel.
There were two days of conference sessions focused around the new ecosystem the way that Comfone’s very own Key2roam Platform support the new industry innovations. We were also delighted to share the stage with some of our customers, to get their take on the industry and Comfone. Thanks to CK Hutchinson, Sateliot, AIS and Reliance JIO and Deutsche Telekom for their involvement. With representatives from all of Comfone’s core and value added services, the agenda featured interesting topics for all participants!
Some Comfone partners also delivered insightful sessions, with presentations from Cellusys, Roamsysnext, Segron, Infobip and Amplitiv.
The event ended this year with an Academy Training Day, providing clarity on new industry topics and giving some handy tips and tricks. Dhiraj Wazir from ROCCO U provided a fascinating session on 5G roaming, and Johannes Kaiser from Roamsysnext gave us valuable information on the GSMA InfoCentre.
Of course, no ConneXion is complete without networking opportunities and evening events, and ConneXion Bangkok did not disappoint. With soaring rooftop bars, royal gardens, funky seafood restaurants, delicious streetfood and karaoke, there was something for everyone!
