Global telco players gear up for Asian Carriers Conference

(The Philippine Star) - September 1, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The 15th annual staging of the Asian Carriers Conference (ACC) – the most anticipated telecommunications event in the continent – will take place on Sept. 3 to 6 this year at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa in Cebu.

Anchored on the theme “Stronger Partnerships for Shared Success,” the ACC, organized by telco giant PLDT and its mobile unit Smart Communications, will focus on the industry’s need to establish greater collaboration and synergy in the face of increasing technological disruption, declining margins and fast-changing customer preferences.

For the last 15 years, more than 1,000 industry leaders and delegates from over 200 companies worldwide have made ACC a celebration of the industry’s future through networking, collaborating and learning with the rest of the global telecommunications and technology communities.

 Since its inception in 2004, ACC has grown to be the much-anticipated conference for both regional and international delegates. The annual event presents a unique combination of networking opportunities, business building venues, and knowledge sharing platforms that are enlivened by various social activities. 

This year’s ACC Advisory Council members consist of global industry leaders who help steer the conference’s strategic initiatives and development plans. The council includes Marc Halbfinger, CEO of PCCW Global; Andrew Kwok, CEO of HGC; and Ali Amiri, chief carrier and wholesale officer of Etisalat.

Helping spread awareness about ACC and its advocacies are distinguished professionals with long-standing engagements with the conference. This year’s ACC ambassadors are Norioki Sekiguchi, director of Softbank; Quiel Delgado, CEO of Radius; Patrick Sullivan, global account manager of Verizon; Guillermo Martinez Maside, vice president for sales of Telefonica; and Jayson Ho, regional sales director of Orange.

A number of workshops covering regional business opportunities, technological trends, and customer experience will also be held alongside fireside chat sessions and various social activities.
