Attending the conference are delegates from wholesale fixed and mobile carriers, network and infrastructure providers, applications and service developers, handset and equipment manufacturers, and entertainment and content distributors around the world.
“Since the launch of ACC in 2005, the event has become the much-awaited telecoms conference in Asia because of its highly productive plenary and efficient workshop and meeting sessions where delegates gain new knowledge and insights, as well as enjoy its fun and socially-relevant side activities,” said PLDT Executive Vice President and Head of Enterprise and International & Carrier Business Ernesto R. Alberto.
Over a thousand participants from 45 countries, representing 322 companies, attended the 2012 ACC. “This year, we expect to surpass last year’s attendance. With so much to learn from our speakers who are experts in their respective fields, as well as the business prospects, networking opportunities, and excellent accommodations, more and more delegates are really looking forward to the 2013 ACC,” said PLDT International & Carrier Business Head and PLDT Global Corporation CEO Alejandro O. Caeg.
