Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our contacts in government, parliament and stakeholders more widely.
A Forum publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
Each publication includes:
- All speeches from the day, with accompanying slides and speaker biographies
(subject to approval by speaker);
- Transcripts of question and comment sessions;
- Supplementary articles from speakers and delegates; and
- Event information such as the delegate list and final agenda
Sorting spectrum - auctions, allocations and availability
PUBLISHED March 2011
This seminar took a wide-ranging look at spectrum in the UK. With Ofcom announcing a timetable for the auction of the 800Mhz and 2.6Ghz frequencies, and the Government indicating that 500Mhz of public spectrum will be freed in the next 10 years, delegates examined how the airwaves can be allocated, assess the dangers of a 'spectrum drought' to UK competitiveness and consider tensions that are likely to arise between competing uses.
