About the Event

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. Join senior executives from the global optical fibre and communication cable supply chain at this important strategic event and network with key stakeholders in person - live in Milan, or take part in the discussions virtually form anywhere in the world. All participants will have access to the presentations to catch up on demand, after the conference has taken place. Find out more about the virtual event here.
