Razvan Cotovelea, minister for the Information Society, in attendance at Focus on Telecom

Newsroom 20/11/2014 | 18:13

Romania’s minister for Information Society has announced he will attend as speaker Business review’s event dedicated to the telecommunications and media sectors, Focus on Telecom. The event will take place on November 26, hosted by the Howard Johnson hotel.

Business Review magazine prides itself on its ability as a platform to bring together CEOs, aspiring entrepreneurs, industry experts, and marketing, human resources and operations leaders. Under the careful guidance of event speakers, these groups can get a conversation going that could, potentially, change Romania’s future. And when the subject is Telecom and IT, two of the most powerful industries in the country today, that conversation turns into a “.COMversation”.

Which is what BR is interested in achieving with the 5th edition of Focus on Telecom & IT, cleverly scheduled on November 26, towards the end of the year, so it can serve as both a 2014 epilogue and 2015 prologue for the chosen industries’ development.

Register here.

The minister will be a speaker in the event’s first session, starting with 9 am. Alongside Razvan Cotovelea, the first session will include other prestigious speakers, such as:

– Catalin Marinescu, president ANCOM

– Stefan Slavnicu, Chief Technical Officer, Orange Romania

– Mircea Beju, Network Deployment and Technology Enterprise Solutions Director, Vodafone Romania

– Marius Maritescu, Switching & Services Division Director, Telekom.
