The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) announced its keynote lineup and its annual View from the Top: Tower Executive Roundtable for Connect (X): All Access – a free, global, virtual conference launching May 19, that is taking the place of WIA’s in-person, annual Connectivity Expo, or Connect (X).

“We are excited for Connect (X): All Access to offer a top-notch lineup of engaging keynote speakers so that attendees can gather valuable takeaways from this don’t-miss event. Attendees will hear about the state of the industry and how it can emerge from the global pandemic even stronger,” said InSite Wireless Group, LLC CEO David Weisman. “Connectivity continues to power the world, especially during this unprecedented time, and this event could not come together at a timelier moment.” 

“We will hear from top leaders among infrastructure owners, carriers, OEMs and the federal government about the future of connectivity. The View from the Top is one of the most highly anticipated sessions, which I look forward to moderating, and we will explore the most pressing issues facing the wireless infrastructure industry,” said WIA President/CEO Jonathan Adelstein. “This event will provide more insight in one virtual place than you can find anywhere on the major developments in wireless, including the impact of the current crisis. WIA wants to give back by providing a free event that will help participants plan ahead for their businesses in our growing industry at a challenging time.”
