WiMAX Forum and Informa Unveil Global Series of WiMAX Conferences
The WiMAX Forum and Informa Telecoms & Media today announced an exclusive agreement to produce a global series of premier trade shows and conferences. The goal of the new events is to foster a hands-on business experience with meaningful networking opportunities to drive worldwide adoption of WiMAX technology and deliver wireless broadband Internet services anytime, anywhere. The Global Congress series of trade shows is 100 percent owned by the WiMAX Forum and was based upon overwhelming membership interest. The launch of a WiMAX Forum trade show follows the trend whereby not-for-profit industry organizations own their own trade events to better service the needs of their memberships.
The WiMAX Forum has received, with full support of the WiMAX Forum Board of Directors, an overwhelming response from members who plan to exhibit at the events. Major industry players are fully backing this important industry initiative, and the following companies have confirmed their intentions to exhibit: Airspan, Alcatel-Lucent, Alvarion, Aperto, ASUS, Fujitsu, IBM, Intel, Motorola, Navini, Nokia, Nokia-Siemens, Nortel, Pico Chip, Quanta, Runcom, Samsung, Sequans, ZTE and ZyXEL. Current membership in the WiMAX Forum is more than 440 members.
The WiMAX Forum Global Congress Events Series will provide dynamic international trade show venues with extensive promotion of WiMAX technologies and vision across every aspect of the WiMAX ecosystem value chain. Under the terms of the agreement, the organizations will create and launch global WiMAX Forum branded industry events beginning in 2008 under the WiMAX Forum Congress Events Series moniker.
"We are excited that Informa has chosen to partner with the WiMAX Forum and its member companies," said Ron Resnick, chairman and president of the WiMAX Forum.
"The confirmed support at this early stage of many leading large WiMAX suppliers, including Intel, Nokia Siemens, Motorola, Nortel, Samsung and ZTE combined with the total commitment to this series of the WiMAX Forum means that this event series will be the one to participate in during 2008," said Ian Hemming, CEO of Informa Telecoms & Media.
