Now marking its 4th year, CMS's International Technology, Media and Communications conference gathers more than 150 delegates, representing the spectrum of technology, media and communications players, plus their financiers and investors.
“Beyond Boundaries” is the conference theme this year.
No longer can businesses be categorised strictly as technology, media or communications players. At this in-depth conference, leading industry players will share how they are working across boundaries and the influence this has on deals, the regulatory environment and potential disputes.
