Market Focus 2020: Call for Speakers

26th August 2020

Market Focus has been a popular feature of the ECOC Exhibition for the past 15 years, growing from just 9 sessions back in 2005 to more than 25 sessions now running across the three days of the exhibition. Attracting speakers from some of the top companies across the industry and around the world, Market Focus has grown to become the place to hear about upcoming trends and industry developments and get an insight into the latest technologies.

The timetable is carefully managed by the Market Focus Committee, who review each and every presentation submission before individual scores are given, allowing for a fair application process. Those with the highest scores are collating by topic area and the timetable can then be drawn up.

The 2020 Call for Speakers is now open, and this year we will be accepting proposals for digital presentation (ie via pre-recorded video) as well as live onsite presentations. The 6 hot topics for 2020 include: Service and content provider optical transmission, Optical Network Agility/Software Defined Networking, Photonics integration and digital silicon photonics, Datacenters: Optics in Cloud Computing, Fibre access and New emerging markets and technologies. The full breakdown of each topic area can be found on the Market Focus Call for Speakers flyer.

If you are interested in speaking at the ECOC Market Focus please contact by Friday 11th September 2020 stating your company name, position, topic of interest and a 100 word summary of your presentation theme with a title based on one of the topics.
