We would like to thank you the event speakers, Host Operator, Principal Ecosystem Sponsor, Congress Partners, Sponsors and Exhbitors for your continued support and would like to congratulate once again the 2018 Network Transformation Awards (NetTAs) Winners.

Established in 2012, SDN NFV World Congress creates the principal market focus for network innovation, and has grown to become the world's largest meeting place for carrier Network Transformation industry leaders.

1,500+ executives, decision makers, leaders and activists meet, learn and exchange knowledge face-to-face in The Hague, watched by a global audience via live webcast.

Launched in the spring of 2012 - the first global SDN conference - SDN NFV World Congress is the industry leading debating forum and showcase for the rapidly growing and massively influential, Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualisation industries.

Now, with over 100 supporting partners and sponsors, and 1,500+ delegates in 2018, the World Congress has established itself as the principal network innovation conference in Europe for the global telecommunications industry. The agenda has expanded in a judicious manner to embrace areas of Network Innovation with the most relevance and urgency for carriers today. This year's Congress focused on 3 primary themes:

1. Technology – Cloud-Native NFV, Hybrid, Interop, SDN, White box, Security

2. Automation – AI, Zero Touch, Orchestration, Programmable Cloud, OSS/BSS, API

3. Business – 5G, Services Transformation, SD-WAN, Application use-cases

While Layer123 expands the expo and agenda each year, the World Congress has been consistently over-subscribed, making it the industry's first choice event. 

Again, we had a very successful 2018 and we look forward to working with you again in 2019!
