Panel: From a buyer’s perspective! 

Hear from the buy-side of some of the top global carriers and operators to get a better understanding of their needs. What do buyers look for in a relationship, and what other factors into their decision-making processes are there to consider beyond cost?

Other prevalent issues in this panel debate also include:

– Where is the industry heading from a buyer’s perspective, and what will collaboration look like in the future?

– What makes a good supplier, and what do buyers look for when entering a new conversation?
