The 5G Techritory, the event connecting leading minds in 5G deployment in the Baltic Sea region, returns for the third year in a row on November 11-12, 2020, said a press release.

Embracing the virtual format and with key events streamed live from Riga HQ, 5G Techritory will take place remotely through a new, custom-built digital conferencing platform.

This year, 5G Techritory's focus is retrospective, as encapsulated in the event name – “A year of 5G: Learning from experience, adjusting for the future”.

After 12 months of tentative rollouts, 5G is struggling to deliver on the massive, industry-shifting expectations it produced.

The 2-day event will be held virtually on a custom-built platform with key presentations live-streamed from the main stage in Riga. The platform is set to provide the most advanced digital conferencing experience to date, featuring multiple stages, networking opportunities, side event “rooms”, sponsor scavenger hunts, audience interaction, and more.

Prime Minister of Latvia Krišjānis Kariņš emphasize Europe and the Baltic Sea Region as leading forces in 5G.

“One year ago with the active support from the government, Latvia became one of the first countries in the world to launch the 5th generation communication network, thereby providing Latvian entrepreneurs and researchers with unprecedented opportunities. We’ve jumped into the fast-moving 5G bandwagon, and seeing as the global reality requires digital solutions in practically every industry, haven’t since looked back,” – Krišjānis Kariņš said.

“Europe is in a position to establish itself as a spearheading participant in the 5G industry, using the latest technologies for the development of new and innovative products and services. This forum is a demonstration of the Baltic Sea Region’s resolution to continue to move ahead and be among the world’s leaders in 5G,” he added.

5G Techitory will feature speakers from such industry-leading corporations as Nokia, Qualcomm, DOCOMO, AT&T, among others, and confirmed participants include the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G-IA), and other influential organizations.

The political industry will be represented by policy-driving entities including the Nordic Council of Ministers, the European Commission, as well as various leaders from the Baltic Sea Region.
