Overview

Shifting consumer, technology and business model trends have dramatically impacted the communications industry – redefining the way service providers go to market and approach their own technologies. To address this industry shift and power their future, Communications Service Providers (CSPs) need to activate new paths to growth while accelerating their digital transformation journeys.

Accenture is excited to bring this conversation live to MWC Barcelona 2022 and intend to showcase our cross-services, partner-powered, integrated solutions to an industry beset with disruption as well as opportunity. And, as MWC 2022’s Industry City Knowledge Partner, we will deliver direct insights for the industry across key industry verticals: Mobility, Manufacturing and Fintech, (plus others!), and the enabling power of 5G.

Reserve some time on your schedule and meet us during MWC, in Barcelona.
