Arena said: "PCCW and HKT are very excited to have this event return to Hong Kong where we look forward to greeting a wide range of delegates from across the region and beyond. This is a highly valuable opportunity for us all to meet new partners, discover new business opportunities, benchmark your own business and to gain insight into the hottest topics facing the broadband and TV industry in the Asia Pacific region."
