Thank you to everyone who attended Small Cells Global Congress 2013!

Preparation is now underway for Small Cells Global Congress 2014 which will be co-located with WiFi World Summit and it's your opportunity to shape the event and make sure you get to see the people who interest you discussing the topics that you want to hear about!

If you want to speak at the 2014 event, or think a particular topic should be covered, contact and help shape the agenda for 2014!

Join 250+ telecoms professionals in Barcelona in September to debate and discuss the fundamental issues facing small cell deployments. The 4th Annual Small Cells Global Congress, the industry’s first event to focus on small cells, guarantees to provide forward thinking, topical and focused discussion needed to provide delegates with the understanding and vision needed to move confidently through this dynamic market.

The implementation of an effective small cell deployment strategy across networks is becoming crucial, and operators need to be not only ready for now, but prepared for the future. Can your network keep up in this fast paced and ever growing data storm?
