One hundred and twenty senior strategy execs from across the North American telecoms, media and technology sectors participated in the event. 92% of participants agreed it is time for telcos to make either a step change in key functions (34%) or initiate a fundamental transformation (58%) in the next 12-18 months.

The next Telco 2.0/Digital Entertainment 2.0 Americas Brainstorm will be held on 4-5 April 2011 in San Francisco. In the meantime, there is a global 'virtual event' on 25-26 January.
