The year’s Critical Communications World was the most successful in the history of the event, attracting 4,500 visitors across the course of its three days according to its organisers.

The show – which this year celebrated its 20th anniversary – took place at the Messe Berlin in May. As well as a record number of visitors, CCW also witnessed 175 experts speaking on a range of critical communications-related subjects, as well as 259 suppliers.

TCCA chief executive Tony Gray said: “This was the biggest, best, and we believe the most valuable for its participants in the 20-year history of TCCA events. I am confident that the show exceeded expectations for all the many participants.”

He continued: “The success of an event like this is dependent on the support of many individuals and organisations, including speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, organisers, delegates, visitors, event partners, media and more. The multiple strands of CCW combined to deliver an excellent 20th anniversary event, and I would like to extend the thanks of TCCA to all who worked so hard to make CCW a memorable and very successful week.”

Critical Communications World is produced by TCCA in partnership with organisers, MA Exhibitions. This year’s sponsorship came from Motorola Solutions, Huawei, Hytera, Nokia, Tait Communications, Leonardo, Airbus, Critical Communications Finland and Frequentis.

CCW 2019 will be held at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Thailand between 29-31 May. The next event in TCCA’s Critical Communications Series is CCMENA, taking place in Dubai, 23-25 September.
