Why Manila?

Recent announcements have made the Philippines one of Asia-Pacific’s most exciting telecom markets. The government and incumbent network operators have shown great enthusiasm for improvement of the country's telecom infrastructure and a third telecom operator has been invited to join the market. This is the perfect time to visit the country and gain a first-hand understanding of the partnership, investment and innovation opportunities.

** !! WARNING !! **CRU has not, and would never, appoint an agency to handle hotel bedroom sales on our behalf. We block a number of rooms for our event which you can directly book via a special web link at a preferred conference rate, which will be sent to you once you have registered. If you are approached by a company called "Expo Housing Service" or "Convention Housing Services" or "Exhibition Housing Services", or "EHRS" for bedroom bookings – these companies are NOT recommended by CRU - we strongly advise that you do NOT book any rooms with them. They cannot guarantee your booking and may charge you with additional fees that make them more expensive than they pretend to be.
