03 November 2021 to 04 November 2021

The last year has been unprecedented - not just in terms of the impact of the pandemic, but also because the industry has shifted into overdrive in pursuit of ambitious government targets for gigabit-capable deployment, and the race to capture market share. Investment flows into the altnet sector are at record levels, and there has been a large number of new entrants in the market.

The work that INCA has been quietly engaged in over the last decade to enable an open and competitive market is bearing fruit, and exciting times lay ahead. The next five years will likely see phenomenal levels of growth and activity across the sector as the pace of deployment accelerates further. This conference, INCA's first face-to-face gathering since February 2020, celebrates the achievements of the last year as its Awards Programme culminates, and looks ahead at the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

The conference runs over two days. The first day (Weds Nov 3) features a full-day programme focussing on 'Tech & Ops' – the tools and technologies that used to design, build and operate state of the art fibre and wireless networks. 

Also on the first day will be two other sessions – one will focus on the investment community, while the second is focussed on the BDUK Project Gigabit programme.

The programme for the second day ifeatures keynotes from leading industry voices, lively panel discussions, and breakout workshops focussing on a range of key topics. Keynote speakers already confirmed include Lindsey Fussell, Group Director for Networks and Communications at Ofcom, and Imran Shafi, the recently appointed Director of Digital Infrastructure at DCMS.
