Dear Sir/Madam,

The Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF) 2021 will be held in Dubai, UAE on October 19th–20th. Huawei is pleased to invite you to this event.

The UBBF is a top industry event organized by the UN Broadband Commission and Huawei. The event represents a great opportunity for players throughout the industry chain to communicate and cooperate together to build a sustainable ecosystem for the ultra-broadband industry.

As digitalization sweeps the world, we are witnessing a dramatic change in the way we work, learn, and live. Further to this, we are seeing explosive growth in applications such as remote education, remote office, smart manufacturing, and smart healthcare. Network connectivity — the foundation of the digital economy — has never been so important. So, building on connectivity, how can the ultra-broadband industry further boost the digital economy in the fast-tracked digitalization process? At UBBF 2021, Huawei, world-leading operators, industry partners, and other industry elites will gather under the theme of "Extend Connectivity, Drive Growth" to explore potential opportunities and challenges in the ultra-broadband industry. Together, we will also discuss how to build a future-proof ultra-broadband network infrastructure, how to extend connectivity boundaries, and how to open up new space in the industry in order to achieve new business growth.

At the event, you will learn about insights from industry leaders and business elites, new business opportunities from industry partners, inspirational ideas from technical experts, and innovative products and solutions. What's more, you will see first-hand innovation showcases delivered by Huawei in cooperation with operators, comprehensively demonstrating the best business practices in the industry.

We are looking forward to seeing you at UBBF 2021. Let's work together to deliver better connectivity, experience, and business growth, and bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.
