Welcome at the
BEREC is excited to meet you in person again!
On 30 March 2023 in Brussels, BEREC will hold its 11th Stakeholder Forum to discuss the latest telecom developments and exchange ideas with stakeholders from the telecommunications industry, policy makers and other interested parties. Enhanced cooperation between BEREC and its stakeholders helps to improve consistency and harmonised application of European regulatory rules and practices in the telecommunications industry.
We will continue with a previously established tradition and will kick off the event with the Meet&Greet sessions, while after lunch, the BEREC Stakeholder Forum will continue with the conference. The event will conclude with a networking reception.
BEREC invites stakeholders to seize this opportunity and physically participate in the event to enhance mutual engagement. Participation requires prior registration. BEREC will also ensure the livestreaming of the event on the website and its social media – Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. A designated online tool will also be set up for submitting questions to the conference speakers.
Come and meet the BEREC Working Groups Co-Chairs!
In 2023, BEREC has established several new Working Groups and has also appointed some new Co-Chairs for both the new and the existing Working Groups. The Meet&Greet sessions are planned as informal physical meetings, in person only. Registered stakeholders will have an opportunity to exchange ideas with the BEREC Working Group Co-Chairs over a coffee to discuss the sector’s challenges.
The Meet&Greet sessions will start at 09:00 CET and will last until lunchtime. Participation in the Meet&Greet sessions requires prior registration for a specific Working Group(s) and timeslot(s). Each Working Group will have three 30-minute rounds of meetings. After a break, a new group of participants will gather to meet the Co-Chairs. For more information, please consult the Registration page. The number of seats per session is limited, and the registrations will be treated on a “first-come-first-served” basis.
BEREC invites all stakeholders to join the conference as part of the BEREC Stakeholder Forum. The incoming BEREC Chair for 2024, Tonko Obuljen (HAKOM, Croatia), will welcome conference participants and introduce the BEREC work plans for 2024 and discuss stakeholder engagement throughout the Work Programme preparatory process. Together with the BEREC Chair, Kostas Masselos (EETT, Greece), they will engage with participants in discussing the current and future challenges of BEREC’s work.
During the conference, moderator Philippe Defraigne (Cullen International) will facilitate lively panel discussions on the future of accessibility for disabled end-users and the role of regulation in the Digital era.
The conference is planned to start at 14:00 CET.
