TowerXchange Meetup Asia 2019 programme

Unlike other events, TowerXchange Meetups create a tailor-made agenda for each participant; combining a mix of market forecasts, roundtable sessions, keynote panels, working groups and networking events to connect you directly with the people and information you need to find.


1. 35+ roundtable discussions to tailor the agenda to your needs

From specific country focus to managing carve-out towercos to financing, roundtables are peer exchange at its best. Each table is led by a host and gathers groups of 10-20 to share ideas, best practices, and lessons learned.


2. Technology working groups to optimise your investments

Asia is both a mix of mature and emerging markets, offering unique opportunities for new and proven solutions. Invitation-only focused groups of buyers and sellers come together to examine technology limitations, innovations, and buyer appetite.


3. Exclusive Q&A with the movers and shakers in Asian towers

Hear from towercos of all sizes and maturity, as Asia is home to the most publicly listed companies as well as developing players. Get behind the thinking of C-suites on the what and how of business operations, growth, management, and more.


4. Key statistics and forecasts to shape your business strategy

What transactions are on the cards, what new build potential exists, what are the procurement priorities across the region and what are the latest developments country by country? TowerXchange’s market forecast gives you all the figures you need.


5. Socialise with key partners at networking drinks and dinner

Build new relationships and strengthen existing ones that will benefit you in the years to come. Get to know your key stakeholders better in a relaxed environment. Be sure to select the dinner option when you register!


6. Small cell, DAS, fibre opportunities for towercos

Asia has some of the most densely populated countries, providing the ideal backdrop for innovation in telecoms. Explore existing and emerging business models and what it may mean for your business.
