Meet the top executives from the global optical fibre and cable community

We are delighted to announce details of the 9th CRU World Optical Fibre & Cable Conference, which will be held in Shanghai from 9-10 October 2024, hosted by Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable Joint Stock Limited Company (YOFC).

The conference provides the perfect setting for industry thought leaders to discuss such challenges and to look for resolutions or alternative ways forward. The conference is also the perfect springboard to present ideas, technological innovations and improved sustainable practices which will help the industry to continually evolve, adapt and grow despite future challenges. At CRU, we find the global market has an unsteady outlook, with some regions reaching saturation in FTTx-related demand, while others display healthy and sustainable growth. China as the world's largest player in the market will continue to help drive fibre optic developments around the world via industry and innovation. Heads turn towards new market developments such as data centres to drive new growth and further usher in a more connected world.

Join us in Shanghai this October 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.
