Dr. Peter Charissé, Managing Director, ANGA COM: “Nothing can replace a physical trade show and the real encounter. However, with our new and AI-supported digital event platform, which we decided on after a thorough market analysis, we believe to be as close as digital can get. We have tried to learn from the mixed experiences of previous digital events. The pandemic won't be over in June, but the light at the end of the tunnel will be within reach as vaccination progresses. All over Europe, people will be relieved and take heart. This is exactly the right time to present the broadband industry to ANGA COM’s international audience with fresh spirit. Especially after a year in which our broadband networks have been the decisive guarantor to continue the economic and social life, we want to underline the fundamental importance and innovative strength of our industry: Gigabit networks and connectivity are a central key to new economic growth after the pandemic. Let us provide our share to source new optimism that we need in Europe so urgently.”
