BEREC Stakeholder Forum

Brussels – DoubleTree by Hilton – 28.10.2021
 

Welcome

After more than a year of being together with you online, BEREC is excited to meet in person soon again! Starting with a handshake and continuing with the exchange of ideas and discussions – it is essential for BEREC to engage and cooperate with stakeholders further in order to improve the consistency and harmonised application of regulatory rules, enhancing its working methodology.

On 28 October 2021, in Brussels, Belgium, BEREC will hold its Stakeholder Forum to meet its stakeholders for discussing topics relevant to the telecommunications market. The event will be kicked-off with a new type of engagement with stakeholders, namely, “Meet&Greet” sessions with the BEREC Working Groups’ Co-chairs. It will be followed by lunch and the conference, closing with the Q&A sessions and the networking reception.

Meet&Greet

The Meet&Greet sessions are planned as informal meetings, during which the registered stakeholders will have a possibility to exchange ideas and discuss the sector’s challenges. The BEREC Working Group Co-chairs will have four 30-minute rounds of meetings with a maximum of 20 participants. After a break, a new group of participants will have a chance to sit at the table with the Co-chairs. The Meet&Greet sessions will start at 09:30 CEST and last until noon. To participate in the Meet&Greet sessions, the stakeholders have to register, identifying the group and a time slot they would be interested to participate at. Registration will open in September – please subscribe to our stakeholders’ list to receive updates on the upcoming registration first.

Conference

After lunch, BEREC invites all stakeholders to join the conference part of the BEREC Stakeholder Forum. The incoming BEREC Chair, Annemarie Sipkes (ACM, the Netherlands), will present the draft BEREC Work Programme 2022. Together with the BEREC Chair Michel Van Bellinghen (BIPT, Belgium) and the BEREC Chair for 2023, Annemarie will reply to questions regarding BEREC’s work and its plans for the future. The participants will have the opportunity to follow the lively discussions and later to engage during the Q&A sessions.

The Stakeholder Forum will conclude with the networking reception.

The stakeholders are welcome to participate in the event physically. Participation is subject to prior registration that will open in September.

Upon organising the event, BEREC has taken into account the measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Should it not be possible to attend the BEREC Stakeholder Forum in person, the event will be livestreamed on the BEREC website and participants will have the possibility to ask through a dedicated platform.
