TM Forum postpones Digital Transformation World

The Digital Transformation World event, which was due to take place in Copenhagen in June, has been postponed to October due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation,” said Nik Willetts, CEO of TM Forum. “The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting our families, our businesses, and our communities. Our thoughts are with all those affected. We’ve been working with our members and the relevant authorities for the last few months to put in place access policies and on-site processes to mitigate the risks of the virus.

“Despite this, we feel it’s best for everyone involved to reschedule our flagship event until October. With the support of our global member base we remain on track to work together in delivering an exceptional event and appreciate everyone’s understanding during these challenging times.”

Digital Transformation World is the TM Forum’s flagship event, bringing operators and vendors together to talk telecoms tech, best practice and generally shoot the breeze. It’s traditionally held in Nice, France in May, but is switching to Copenhagen, Denmark this year. The Danish weather should still be OK in October, but it’s by no means guaranteed that the pandemic will be sufficiently contained by then. Fingers crossed.
