Telecommunications is one of many industries which will be heavily represented at this year's European Women in Tech conference!

The further integration of digital technology is a huge focus for the telecommunications industry, as the sector focus shifts from traditional products to more connected, cutting edge digital services that are key in enabling digital transformation across Europe. From 5G to cloud migration, telco technologists are carving the way for the future of digital disruption, and undergoing massive structural and cultural changes to embrace this change.

Even prior to the launch of 5G, a consistent demand for mobile data is prevalent among consumers. We can expect this demand to continue and increase, as data-heavy applications are used more frequently by consumers. Deloitte's 2018 Global Mobile Consumer Survey confirms this, with 37% of respondents reporting that they have unlimited data plans - this figure has increased by 12% since the previous year. 

This demand for digital will be one of the many topics explored by our speakers at this year's European Women in Tech, with speakers from Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and TomTom! See the top speakers for the telecommunications industry below.
