TCCA’s Critical Communications World (CCW), the leading conference and exhibition dedicated to connecting critical communications professionals, celebrated its 20th year with another hugely successful event.

CCW welcomed more than 4,500 visitors through the doors of the Messe Berlin ExpoCenter. Attendees benefitted from the insights and expertise of 175 expert speakers, while 259 suppliers and an entirely new suite of demonstration areas, including a brand-new Control Room Arena, Drone Zone and Connected Vehicle Zone encouraged conversations and debate around the evolving critical communications landscape.

Tony Gray, TCCA Chief Executive, 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.

“The success of an event like this is dependent on the support of many individuals and organisations. 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.”

Hosted at the Messe Berlin ExpoCenter from 15th-17th May 2018, CCW is produced by TCCA in partnership with organisers, MA Exhibitions, with this year’s sponsorship coming from Motorola Solutions, Huawei, Hytera, Nokia, Tait Communications, Leonardo, Airbus, Critical Communications Finland and Frequentis.

CCW 2019 will be held in Bangkok, Thailand at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) on 29-31 May.
