Broadband World Forum (BBWF) 2021


As one of the world’s largest telecoms, media & technology events, Broadband World Forum (BBWF) 2021 is the right place where senior executives from fixed, mobile, cable and OTT operators all around the globe participate to shape the future of the broadband industry.

This year, the hybrid Broadband World Forum will be live at the RAI in Amsterdam from 13-14 October 2021. In parallel, there will be a digital version from 11-15 October 2021.

After careful consideration, Nokia has decided not to have a booth at the event venue. We will have limited physical presence on-site with Nokia speakers and a meeting room.

If you are planning to visit BBWF in the RAI, we would like to invite you to meet with our Nokia speakers and subject matter experts, please contact your Nokia representative for more details.

We invite you to listen in on our keynote and other speaking sessions.
