Ep 16 – #SaveMWC

It’s true. TelcoDR has swooped in to take over Ericsson’s forfeited Mobile World Congress space in Barcelona. That’s right, I’ve signed on to fill 6,000 square meters (65,000 square feet for you Americans) on the exhibit floor at GSMA’s MWC 2021. I can’t wait to bring the public cloud centerstage at this event! And I’m even more excited to host innovative disruptors in my space – telco software vendors that have gone ALL IN on the public cloud.

In this episode, I sit down with my good friend David Haselwood to talk about why I gave everything I had to make this opportunity happen and what it means for the telco industry. We talk about:

  • The question everyone wants to know – HOW did this happen? [3:14];
  • How it changes the conversation from the Has Beens to the Cloud Disruptors [6:11]; and
  • What we’re going to do with all this space [9:06].

And hey, if you know anyone at Ericsson, could you ask them if I can take over their hotel room blocks?
