Telecoms industry set to finally get the recognition it deserves

Hard working telecoms industry professionals are set to finally emerge from decades of bleak anonymity thanks to the new, improved Glotel Awards.

The 2019 version has just been launched and is open for entries. Now in its seventh year the event is single-handedly responsible for plucking telecoms vendors, service providers and the general ecosystem from obscurity and putting them on the pedestal they richly deserve. It would only be slightly hyperbolic to say the awards change people’s lives.

But the awards team passionately believe you can never have too much philanthropy, so have spent every waking moment since the triumphant 2018 event racking their brains for ways to improve it further, seemingly impossible though that might seem. So this year it has a bunch of new categories a shiny new brand and many other juicy surprises up its sleeve.

“Last year was a great laugh, with Russel Kane warming up the room perfectly and a really broad selection of winners from across the industry,” said Scott Bicheno, Editor of Telecoms.com. “I don’t know how Sophie and her team do it, but somehow they’ve managed to raise the bar once more and I’m counting the days until the next Awards evening already.”

“I don’t know what the telecoms industry would do without you lot, if I’m honest,” said some bloke Bicheno met in the pub. “I’ve just about had it up to here with vendors and operators not getting the recognition they deserve so I’d like to buy you all a drink. Just pints mind, no cocktails or nothing like that.”

All that remains is for you, yes you vendor whose always complaining about how nobody has heard of you, to go to the Awards site and see which category you think best fits what you do. The 2019 Glotel Awards will be the biggest and best yet and, quite frankly, you can’t afford not to be involved.
