The exhibition space in the two halls will increase to over 25,000 sqm for more than 450 exhibitors from 35 countries. This is significantly more space than before the pandemic. The  floor plans are available online. Dr. Peter Charissé, CEO ANGA COM: “Our target was 400 exhibitors, now we are at more than 450. Both core areas, fiber optics and media distribution, have grown rapidly. The demand is still so high that we cannot offer stand space to all interested companies. The conference programme is more high-profile than ever and full of innovations. I am particularly pleased that the line-up is once again first class for both areas, telecommunications and media distribution.”
