Over 400 industry professionals attended New York State Wireless Association’s (NYSWA) bi-annual Wireless Forum 2015 held on June 16 & 17 in New York City at Chelsea Piers! The sold-out, two day event offered a DAS Site Infrastructure Tour, Opening Reception, Educational Sessions, Exhibitor Hours and a Closing Reception. It was a huge success with attendees from around the Country.
The activities kicked-off with a DAS Site Infrastructure Tour at the New York by Gehry building in lower Manhattan. Attendees were escorted through several floors of the building that included a trip to the roof to view the beautiful skyline. Thanks to Extenet Systems who sponsored the tour and made it possible for almost 100 participants to see this amazing building and its DAS wireless network.
Next, the Opening Reception, sponsored by AMP, at Tao Downtown provided a great networking opportunity for over 250 industry colleagues. The sold-out crowd enjoyed a fun atmosphere and delicious food for several hours in the City that never sleeps!
Jonathan Adelstein, President & CEO, got the Forum started by delivering the opening breakfast keynote, followed by Jim Young, COO of Crown Castle for the luncheon keynote. The closing keynote of the day was Jessica Zufolo, Director of Federal Grants Strategy & Coordination for FirstNet followed by a cocktail reception on the terrace overlooking the Hudson River.
Between the keynotes the day was filled four educational panels: National, State and NYC Policies Driving the Wireless Sector, 5G & Beyond: Emerging Technologies, WiFi/DAS/Small Cell – Wireless Disrupters or Natural Evolution and Financial Trends and Forecasts for Wireless Services and with visits to the Exhibit Hall.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers for your generous support and time. We look forward to seeing you atNYSWA‘s next Wireless Forum in 2017!
