Both events will take place at the same venue – the ITU Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

Open only to representatives of Member States, Sector Members and to chairmen and vice-chairmen of Study Groups, the Telecommunication Development Advisory Group (TDAG) originally scheduled to be held from 24 to 27 March is postponed until 2 to 5 June 2020. Likewise, the 17th World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Symposium, originally planned for 15 to 17 April 2020, will also be postponed and new dates will be communicated shortly.

The dates and venue for the Global Symposium for Regulators (1 to 3 September 2020) remain unchanged.

The World Information Society (WSIS) Forum is the world's largest annual gathering of the 'ICT for development' community and aims to foster digital transformation and global partnerships to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Action-oriented, global & inclusive, the AI for Good Global Summit is the leading United Nations platform on AI (artificial intelligence) and its goal is to identify practical applications of AI and scale those solutions for global impact.
