About the C5 World Forum
The C5 Network World Forum (Customer-Centric Converged Communication and Content), focused on networks and technologies, emerged from the need to move beyond the digital networked economy to focus more intently on the implications of network convergence of communications and its role in shaping personalized content and communications for customers.

Previously known as the 21st Century Communications World Forum, the forum premiered in 2005, drawing more than 2,000 registrants eager to discuss the latest advances in the move toward customer-centric information and communications technologies. The 2006 show in London, England, which saw a 75 percent increase in registration over the 2005 forum, analyzed the business and technology requirements for making convergent IP communications a reality in today's world on a carrier scale.

The premiere of the C5 Network World Forum will take place in the Fiera Milano Congressi in Milan, Italy, from 26–29 March 2007. Telecom Italia will be the forum's official host sponsor. For more information, visit
