Welcome to the
WIS 2015 Europe Summit

Wi-Fi is evolving. Both in how it is used and what it brings to its users, there has never been such interest in in Wi-Fi access as there is today.

Wi-Fi has a critical role in the infrastructure that will deliver public access, new smart digital services, enhanced voice capabilities and more. There’s a clear need to understand what’s happening, how it can drive new business models and what can be delivered to users.

That’s why we’re bringing together the Wi-Fi ecosystem for the most important European summit on Wi-Fi innovation. Our goal is to educate, inform and challenge. We want our delegates and speakers to connect, exchange idea and be inspired.

Join us in Amsterdam this Autumn, as our thought-leaders share their view, expose the latest developments and explore how you can capitalise on the next wave of Wi-Fi.
