Riga. The invitation-only event is a working Forum taking leadership for setting the 5G agenda in Europe. Up to 1000 senior-level professionals driving 5G deployment will be in attendance. The Forum serves as a platform for cross-border, cross-level, and cross-sectoral collaboration in the Baltic Sea Region. It is developed in close cooperation with the Nordic Council of Ministers, which plays a key role in fostering the Nordic-Baltic digitalization.

5G deployment is actively pursued within the Baltic Sea Region, which is comprised of nine countries: Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. Together, they comprise a population of over 150 million, placing the region on-par with global superpowers. As a result, the potential thought leadership, when collaborating, is high. These countries have already demonstrated leadership in developing the policy and infrastructure required for commercial 5G deployment.

The location of the 5G Techritory Forum, Riga, Latvia, is reflective of the Latvian government’s active participation in supporting the rollout of the 5th generation technology, as can be seen in that it is the country is ranked 3rd in 5G readiness in Europe. Government support for 5G initiatives continue at all levels, which will significantly support the rate of adoption of 5G technologies in the country, and successively, the Baltic Sea Region.

Attendees will have the opportunity to narrow their focus and participate in value-adding side events that are expected to generate meaningful outcomes.

Those include:
● The first-ever 5G policy hackathon – where 5G policymakers from the Baltic Sea region and beyond will come together to form suggestions for cross-border policy solutions to challenges presented by 5G implementation
● A key stakeholders’ roundtable – to discuss the main tasks and actions for initial 5G cross-border projects in the Baltic Sea Region
● “Meet the 5G Technology” expo – where attendees can see and interact with the cutting edge technologies being built for or driving the development of 5G
