ACC HONG KONG’s Executive Committee invites you to a special half-day conference hosted by Bird & Bird. Light snacks and lunch will be provided. 3 Law Society CPD Points have been applied for.

Do you know what 5G is, and how it will impact your work and personal lives? 

If you want to keep up to date with this new technology, don’t delay in registering for our ACC HK/Bird & Bird 5G Half Day Conference on 19 March starting 8.30am.

This is not just a conference for telco and tech lawyers. It’s a topic all GCs and in-house counsel should have some basic understanding of.

At its simplest, 5G is the next generation of mobile technology. It’s what your phone and tablet will use in the future and it will replace the current 4G technology that you’re likely using today. Importantly the implications of 5G connectivity go well beyond telecommunications and will be felt in many other sectors including transportation, manufacturing, energy, healthcare, media, entertainment and sport.

Bird & Bird is in a unique position to combine deep industry expertise in these sectors with an understanding of the transformative nature of 5G connectivity and the opportunities and challenges involved in deploying it.

Don’t miss out on your free place at the Conference and to hear from highly respected inhouse-counsel Charles To of Tencent and Dominic Gyngell of Speedcast.
