    Define the Future of 5G World in London in June 2019

    With all the trade events in London this June we recently blogged about, the middle of the month is when guests here at Fraser Place Canary Wharf, and everyone in the neighbourhood, walk around looking at their phones a lot, and there’s a very good reason for it.

    5G World is taking place at ExCel London, and if you’re planning to go to the conference, we have all the information you need about the event, how to get there from Canary Wharf and where to stay.

    What is 5G World?

    The conference is one of the leading events for mobile and telecoms professionals. It will focus on the ever-changing world of connectivity, specifically with the leaps and bounds being made towards getting 5G closer to become the next norm in our lives. 

    The conference is made up of two parts: the first two days (11th&12th) will be centred on workshops and conferences. Speakers include representatives from Verizon, 3, o2 and Talk Talk. The latter half of the event is when the main exhibition space is open with over 80 exhibits showcasing where mobile networks are going to go in the next few years.

    Where does 5G World take place?

    The conference takes place at ExCel London, less than two miles away from our location here in the heart of Canary Wharf.

    The average cost of a ticket to the whole conference is £1,595. There may be package deals and last minute discounts closer to the time on the 5G world website.

    Where can I find accommodation near 5G World?

    With 108 fully furnished rooms and unbeatable service around the clock, Fraser Place Canary Wharf is a great accommodation choice for anyone attending 5G World.

    For someone who just needs a reliable room to have while they’re here, one of our serviced studio apartments with integrated living, dining and bedroom areas are fantastic if you need a good base in the area.

    One of the more popular choices for guests staying with us during any conference is our serviced one bedroom apartments with a special view of Canary Wharf or the marina.
