550 innovative leaders and disrupters from around the world will converge on 28-29 November 2016 in Helsinki, Finland, to chart a new path forward for the communications and digital service industry
HELSINKI, Finland— November 16—Comptel Corporation (OMX Helsinki: CTL1V) today with co-hosting partners Salesforce, IBM and TechMahindra, unveiled the scope of its second annual Nexterday North “anti-seminar”, taking place 28-29 November 2016 in Helsinki, Finland.
To help communications service providers (CSPs) secure their future in the digital services landscape, last year’s inaugural Nexterday North event challenged attendees to think ahead, across and beyond the industry’s standards for what it means to be a traditional CSP, by gleaning insights from other digital industries. This year, Nexterday North 2016 will focus on the execution of those learnings.
“Telcos must go beyond their own industries to find the answers to digital transformation challenges,” said Juhani Hintikka CEO of Comptel. “Attending the same, tired seminars and listening to the same, stale discussions means that telco professionals are simply preserving the status quo. Now, as an industry, we need to start bringing in fresh ideas, models and learnings across the entire digital landscape. This is the core vision of Nexterday North.”
The event will feature a line-up of inspirational presentations by renowned market disruptors, futurists and leaders from all corners of the digital and communications industry. Nexterday North’s diverse roster of speakers, which include executives from Uber, Zappos Insights, Salesforce, VentureBeat and The Economist, as well as futurists Dietmar Dahmen, Mike Walsh and best-selling author David Meerman Scott, will touch on everything from business strategy and management to customer engagement, marketing, sales and new digital service and technology phenomena.
Nexterday North takes place in the two days leading up to Slush, Europe’s largest start-up event. “Whereas Slush is for start-ups, Nexterday North is for ‘grown-ups,’” said Ari Vänttinen, CMO, Comptel. “Established brands and businesses are going through a major disruption and power shift. Now is the time for them to stop overthinking digitalisation and just start doing it.”
“Nexterday North is just one piece of Comptel’s broader Nexterday movement,” continued Vänttinen. “With our online magazine and community, Nexterday.org and the upcoming launch of Comptel’s latest book, Nexterday: Volume III, we have created other powerful platforms to collect and disseminate new voices and ideas from across the global digital landscape, to support the transformation conversation.”
