Keynote speakers announced for MWC Los Angeles

Additional keynote speakers have been announced for the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event which will take place on 22-24 October 2019 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. Executives from Intel, the US FCC and Refinery29 will speak about the technology and telecommunications industry. 

Speakers include Ajit Pai, chairman of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC); Asha Keddy, a 5G general manager at Intel Corporation; Ricky Corker, president of American customer operations at Nokia; Joseph Essas, chief technology officer at OpenTable; Stéphane Richard, CEO of Orange Group and chairman of GSMA; and Amy Emmerich, chief content officer at Refinery29. 

“This year’s MWC Los Angeles event is bringing together the greatest minds and companies to showcase the transformation the mobile industry is undergoing,” said John Hoffman, CEO of GSMA. “In the era of Intelligent Connectivity, 5G is powering artificial intelligence, internet of things (IoT) and data to reach new heights in never-before imagined ways. By 2025, there will be 5.8 billion unique mobile subscribers and over 25 billion IoT connections. MWC19 will examine the possibilities in this new frontier– you won’t want to miss it.”

Speakers at CTIA’s ‘Everything Policy’ track include FCC commissioners Brendan Carr, Michael O’ Rielly and Geoffrey Starks who will discuss key wireless issues such as spectrum, privacy, cubersecurity, 5G, unmanned aerial services and more. 

“Technology can serve as the great equaliser of opportunity for people everywhere — a vehicle to enhance education, deepen ties of commerce and culture, and improve the quality of life for young people and families around the world,” said Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles. “Los Angeles decided to become a smart city, lead the way in 5G adoption, and host MWC19 for a clear reason: we know the power of innovation to level the playing field for our workers and forge solutions to our most pressing social, political and economic challenges.”
