Sixty-five of Latin America's leading telecom executives will convene in
Panama for two and a half days of focused workshops, peer led panel
discussions and working lunches at GDS International's seventh Next Generation
Telecoms Latin America summit.

This popular event will take place on the 18 ^th to the 20 ^th of March 2013
at the five-star InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa in Panama. Having
previously run six successful NG Telecom summits in Latin America, this year's

oncoming mobile broadband tidal wave and methods for managing and monetizing
mobile data traffic. Delegates will also be looking at broader issues,
including mobile network optimization, network challenges in the mobile
Internet era, and VAS for mobile telephony in Latin America.

Dan Acton, CTO/COO/Co-Founder of Crown Interactive, was an attendee at the

going through an exciting period of growth and change, with new technologies
such as 4G LTE are re-shaping the mobile landscape. These changes are creating
new challenges for senior executives, tasked with maximizing revenues and
improving business performance."

He continues: "This is a big part of the reason why the NG Telecoms Summit and
our advisory board meetings have continued to deliver value and grow in
stature over the years. We are confident that the summit will once again
provide CTOs and leading technology vendors in the region with a strategic
platform to discuss and debate their pain points, through our unique format of
one-on-one meetings and end-user led workshop sessions."
