PTC Explores Digital Infrastructure

A sneak-peek into PTC’23: 15-18 January 2023

After a successful return to Honolulu for PTC’22, planning is underway for the 45th Annual Conference, PTC’23 on 15-18 January 2023. PTC looks forward to welcoming attendees from around the globe back to Waikiki for another successful event.

PTC’23 will once again gather the industry for thought-provoking presentations and discussions on key areas of digital infrastructure through center-stage sessions, workshops, topical sessions, and the PTC HUB Lightning Talks.

PTC’23 will develop topics in a variety of areas:

  • Business and Customer Perspectives
  • Network Technologies, Equipment, and Services
  • Network Applications
  • Enabling Technologies
  • Pacific Region and Development
  • Regulation, Policy, and Ethics

New for PTC’23 is Digital Infra Speed Dating. PTC will facilitate this new experience to allow up-and-coming owners of fiber, data center, edge computing, or cell tower real estate assets (with 75 million USD or more in revenue) to introduce themselves to institutional investors and private equity firms.

Additionally, to encourage companies to bring rising industry executives, PTC is providing a special Young Professionals BOGO (buy one, get one) registration offer for companies that register for PTC’23 and would like to invite a young professional from their company to attend and experience the Annual Conference for free. A total of 50 young professional registrations are available on a first-come, first-served basis, one per company, provided that the registered attendee has paid for their conference registration.

Following the organization’s vision and mission to make a difference in the Pacific Rim Region, PTC conducts a series of Community Outreach Initiatives that focus on helping the future of digital telecommunications by supporting up-and-coming scholars, bringing Internet to hard-to-reach locations, and training the next generation of executives in telecom management.
