The World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) is to be held from 28 Oct-22 Nov, and will address requirements for some of the advanced technological innovations set to play a pivotal role in tomorrow’s digital economy with immense implications for the trillion-dollar telecommunication and ICT industry. This event will be preceded by the Radiocommunication Assembly 2019 (RA-19), 21-25 October. Delegates will gather at Sharm El-Sheikh International Congress Centre (SHICC).

Held every three to four years, the WRC is mandated to review and revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits.

WRC-19 will facilitate the management of scarce orbit/spectrum resources in the interest of end-users, with global implications for both policy-makers and the industry.
