Registration has opened for Critical Communications World (CCW) 2021, taking place at IFEMA in Madrid, from November 3-5 this year. CCW brings together stakeholders from around the world, including manufacturers, users, operators and government representatives.
Those not able to attend will have the opportunity to get involved online, with the conference sessions being livestreamed for the first time ever.
This follows on from the success of Critical Communications Week and CCBitesize, virtual events which have taken place over the course of the past year. Online conference content will be available for a nominal fee, with exhibitors also being able to interact with visitors prior to the show through the fully featured networking platform.
The event will feature a range of conference and masterclass sessions, delivered by critical communications experts from across the world. Under the theme of ‘Protect, enhance, envision, advance’, topics will include ongoing national roll-outs of broadband for critical communications, the evolution of the TETRA standard and more.
The Critical Communications Association (TCCA) chief executive Tony Gray said: “The past 12 months has been a difficult period for those operating in our sector, something which has been compounded by the inability to meet colleagues in person. With Critical Communications World now able to take place, that situation will soon be rectified.”
Tony Gray adds: “As anyone who has ever visited will know, CCW is a special event, with a central role in driving the sector forward and setting the future agenda. It facilitates global networking, while at the same time enabling those involved to experience cutting edge technology, best practice, and new ideas delivered from the conference stage. With the addition of this year’s online element, we expect CCW 2021 to be one of TCCA’s most successful shows.”
Alongside the online element, another new addition for 2021 will be the Government Authority Global Village. This will provide an exclusive forum for national critical communications projects from around the world to come together to discuss ideas and best practice.
