“Creating the Crossover Collaboration for 5G Eco-Society”
Workshop: 24-25 May 2017, Hilton Tokyo ODAIBA
Exhibition: 24-26 May 2017, Tokyo Big Sight


The Fifth Generation Mobile Communications Promotion Forum (5GMF) will organize the 3rd Global 5G Event in Tokyo on 24-25 May 2017. The series of event is based on a Multi-Lateral MoU to cooperate on building global consensus on 5G with world’s 5G promotion organizations. The event is held twice a year in rotation. Last year, the 1st Global 5G Event was held in Beijing, China by IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group and the 2nd event was held in Rome, Italy by 5G-IA.

The Workshop of the 3rd Global 5G Event will be held in Pegasus Hall, Hilton Tokyo ODAIBA on 24-25 May 2017. In parallel with the Workshop, the 5GMF is also planning the Exhibition for the world’s 5G promotion organizations in Wireless Technology Park (WTP2017), Tokyo Big Sight on 24-26 May 2017.

5G is aimed at the practical use on 2020 and beyond. On the 3rd Global 5G Event, we will introduce the hot news on “5G Filed Trial Project in Japan” that will be started in May, 2017, and discuss the latest global topics on the 5G spectrum harmonization, collaboration with Verticals and so on.
