We are delighted to announce that the 8th CRU World Optical Fibre & Cable Conference will be hosted by Prysmian Group in Milan on 7-9 November 2022.
The event will give leaders of the optical fibre and cable sector the chance to address peers on the role that the industry will play in the global recovery. With the pandemic changing our everyday life, and the way we do business, it has also accelerated the trends towards connected lifestyles that rely on strong communications networks. Optical fiber and cable will be at the core of these trends.
This year, the optical fibre industry is set for the fastest growth in demand since 2017, spurred on by rising investment in fixed line networks alongside ongoing 5G network construction. The best example of this is in the US, where broadband centric stimulus measures, such as the RDOF and BEAD program are supporting elevated demand and record cable deployment levels. Prices for both fibre and cable have subsequently responded and are now back at pre-pandemic levels following persistent gains since mid-2021.
These market conditions make it an ideal time to gather in person once again, to discuss future trends and gain access to senior decision-makers from the world’s leading producers; and to meet and do business with consumers and service providers from across the global supply chain.
