In light of the evolving situation regarding COVID-19/Coronavirus, we are aware that there is currently a ban on travel to (and within) Italy due to the recent outbreak. However, at the present time (1/4/20), we are still planning to go ahead with the CRU World Optical Fibre & Cable Conference in October, assuming the travel ban is lifted in good time. We will be posting updates here on the website, so please check back regularly.

CRU will continue to monitor the situation/advice from the World Health Organisation and Governments, as the health and well-being of our clients and staff is our priority. We recommend delegates consult their own country's government guidance and company travel advisories if you require any additional information. If you have any questions, please contact conferences@crugroup.com

Where global leaders meet to discuss the future of fibre

We are delighted to announce details of the
6th CRU World Optical Fibre & Cable Conference. The 2020 event will be held in Europe for the first time in its history, with Prysmian as host sponsor.  

Firmly established as the premier event for senior executives from the global optical fibre and communication cable supply chain, the CRU World Optical Fibre & Cable conference will be held in Milan, Italy on 26-28 October, offering delegates the chance to meet with key industry stakeholders from Europe and beyond.

The conference has consistently attracted an influential audience of decision-makers to the three-day event, packed with presentations from C-level speakers, thought-leaders and innovators. The event was relocated to the US in 2019 and was hosted by Corning Incorporated in Charlotte, N. Carolina to great success. 

The CRU World Optical Fibre & Cable Conference continues to provide unrivalled access to senior decision-makers from the world’s leading producers of preform, optical fibre and communication cable, to meet and do business with consumers and service providers from across the global supply chain. The three-day event will be packed with CEO level speakers, interactive sessions, a lively exhibition and variety of networking functions.
