Informa Telecoms and Media are delighted to announce the agenda for the inaugural Saudi Com event taking place at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Manama Bahrain on 24th-25th May 2010. The first event of its kind, Saudi Com is dedicated to maximising the potential of the Saudi telecoms market. GCC operators will be invited to attend free of charge, facilitating unique networking and learning opportunities.
"Saudi Arabia is the Gulf region's strongest and largest economy, one that appears to have largely managed to avoid the negative impact of the global financial crisis. For this reason it is key to next generation broadband access developments in the region and next generation subscriptions, although still relatively small, are set for considerable growth in the next five years. Saudi Com will provide an excellent platform for learning about this important market," said Julian Herbert, Principal Analyst in Informa Telecoms & Media's Industry Research team.
