Established in 2012, SDN NFV World Congress creates the principal market focus for network innovation, and has grown to become the world's largest meeting place for carrier Network Transformation industry leaders.

2,000 executives, decision makers, leaders and activists meet, learn and exchange knowledge face-to-face in The Hague, watched by a global audience via live webcast.

Launched in the spring of 2012 - the first global SDN conference - SDN NFV World Congress is the industry leading debating forum and showcase for the rapidly growing and massively influential, Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualisation industries.

Now, with over 100 supporting partners and sponsors, and 1,700+ delegates in 2016, the World Congress has established itself as the principal network innovation conference in Europe for the global telecommunications industry. The agenda has expanded in a judicious manner to embrace areas of Network Innovation with the most relevance and urgency for carriers today, including:

Networking Technology/Infrastructure (Hardware, Interop, Perform, Accelerate)
Automation & Operation (Automation, Orchestration, API, OSS, Security, Policy)
SD-WAN & Business (Strategy, Applications, Services, Networks, Revenue)

While LAYER123 doubled the Expo space available each year, the World Congress has been consistently over-subscribed, making it the industry's first choice event. Now established in a new, scalable venue, SDN NFV World Congress is set to grow again in 2017.

Join the real market-makers, leaders and activists and be part of the community and positive energy. We look forward to working with you again in 2017!
