Presentation of the 9th annual exclusive Telco CEO & Private Equity Event hosted by Arthur D. Little in Vienna

On June 17th, 2019, Arthur D. Little hosted its 9th annual exclusive Telecom CEO & Private Equity Event in Vienna, Austria.
The topic of this year’s event was “Embracing the Future”, focussing on the inorganic growth options that shape the telecoms industry. The event gave a preview of our study, covering a truly global view of the telecom industry, with over 100 C-level interviews conducted and more than 4.300 deals in the telecom sector analysed. The importance of this topic was highlighted by over 60 top executives and shareholders of leading operators, regulators, vendors, banks & private equity from 25+ countries attending the invitation-only event.

The event began with a welcome by Karim Taga, Global TIME Practice Leader and Managing Partner of Arthur D. Little Austria and an introduction into the various flavors of the telecom growth alternatives. Rajesh Duneja (Principal at Arthur D. Little and lead author of this year’s study) followed with the presentation of ADL’s key findings. The participants discussed the findings and major implications on telecom operators in a lively Q&A session. The informal discussion later continued on the rooftop terrace where participants debated and networked in a relaxed atmosphere until late in the evening, last guests leaving way after midnight.
