CCW 2019

18–20 June, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Critical Communications World 2019

Event info

Critical Communications World CCW 2019 is one of the key events of the year for the critical communications community. Users, solution and service vendors and technology developers will meet at the new, amazing MITEC conference center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The exhibition is the perfect venue for discussions between critical communications users and technology and service providers. For example, testing new user devices and other equipment and seeing new applications being demonstrated is a great benefit to organisations planning their investments. The Airbus stand can be found in Hall 11, G114.

The conference gives an opportunity to learn from other professionals' experiences. Panel discussions between users and industry experts are interesting and can spark exciting new ideas.

See also the Critical Communication Finland (CCF)  stand in CCW. CCF is a user -and solution driven co-ordination entity of Finnish authorities and local industry.  In CCW, CCF will present how stakeholders use narrow and broadband critical communications solutions and co-operate, what are the requirements for supporting solutions and what is the way forward. CCF members (including Airbus) are looking forward to partner with local and global entities to bring together mutual competence and experience.

Useful tips for your stay in Kuala Lumpur

Trains are efficient and reliable in Kuala Lumpur. You should use them when possible.

English is spoken widely in Kuala Lumpur and locals usually enjoy practising their excellent English.

Haggling is expected in the many, wonderful market places of Kuala Lumpur. Enjoy!

Amazing variety of street food is available around the city. Long queues are a good recommendation. Food can be very spicy, though.
