The Telecom Review Summit Awards celebrated leaders in the industry going beyond the ordinary in leading telecom through an era of transformation.
The Awards witnessed the most number of submissions in its history this year, with entries from over 30 countries in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
"This year's award winners represent the absolute best in our industry and we are very proud to honor these winners with such a distinguished award," said Toni Eid, CEO of Trace Media International and founder of Telecom Review.
This year there have been 167 award applications submitted. Winners were chosen based on recognized and demonstrated capabilities in their specific sector, and by an independent panel of 15 experienced industry veterans, including representatives from the carrier arena, telecom/ICT vendor arena and the ICT investment banking arena. The voting was completed and compiled earlier this year.
Commenting on the gathering of industry leaders, Jeff Seal, managing partner of Telecom Review North America, noted, "Once again, Telecom Review has brought together the leaders of the ICT/telecom industry from around the world for the most anticipated executive networking event of the year. We look forward to hosting the world's industry leaders at next year's event."
