The new year is in full swing which means important dates need to be marked for the next 12 months. In the telecommunications sector, there are a few annual events that define each year — events such as Africacom and The Mobile World Congress and of course the Carrier Community GCCM.

Carrier Community (CC) is a global telecom club established in 2008 and organising annual global carrier community meetings in London since 2008 for the members. This year will see the 11th annual EUROPE 2019 GCCM hosted in London on 13th & 14th February 2019 at the Royal Lancaster London Hotel.

Organisers have stated that they expect to see over 900 club members from 450+ telecom operators and 68+ countries represented in the attendees with decision makers from the Tier-1, Tier-2 and Tier-3 meet and network in London. 

As a long-standing and trusted member of the Carrier Community, iTouch will be in attendance at this year's event with our CEO Greg Brophy as the representative.

What is the significance of the GCCM?

CC is bringing together members and Telco Eco-Partners from various segments such as Data, Cloud, Application Providers, Voice, SMS Messaging, Mobile, OTT/ Content Providers, VAS, Submarine Cable, Enterprise, Satellite, ISP, Data Centers and other related segments.
