Further details:
With contributions from all of the main stakeholders at both a policy and industry level from the US, Canada and Latin America, this conference will take a comprehensive look at spectrum management policies across the Americas region. It will offer the chance to look at best practices in areas such as increasing efficiency of spectrum bandplans (with a focus on the 700MHz band), the linkage between spectrum allocation and competition issues in the mobile sector, Incentive Auctions, increasing access to broadband services and Dynamic & Shared Spectrum Access. The event will also explore the possible scope and benefits of deepening co-ordination of spectrum policy across the Americas region, and by bringing in speakers from Europe and Asia, the debate will also extend to a global level.

Sessions at the conference include:
 - To what extent can reformation and harmonisation of spectrum bandplans be used to increase efficiency of use and meet increasing demand?
 - What can be done across the Americas to make better use of the 700MHz band?
 - Consolidation, Competition and Spectrum Licensing: The linkage between spectrum allocation and consolidation in the mobile sector
 - Funding the switch from digital divide to digital opportunity
 - Spectrum Valuation & Strategy in a 4G World
