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.
2,000 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.
