Next 25 and Making Telecoms Work book launch

Join us for a drinks reception in In Future, Wellcome Wing, the Science Museum London on Wednesday 25th January 2012.

Two years ago we were delighted to help co-promote an event which marked the 25th anniversary of the mobile phone industry in the UK. Cellular 25 was organised by Cambridge Wireless, chaired by Sir David Brown and featured presentations from all of the UK cellular operators and five key vendors, followed by a rather nice dinner and a large sponsored birthday cake.
The event helped to raise funds for the new gallery at the Science Museum, The Making of Modern Communication, opening in 2014.

Two years later the Museum are two years closer to the launch of the gallery and have some exciting plans that they would like to share with us.

These include a number of projects that engage with different sectors of the telecoms industry drawing on the archive resources of the Science Museum including a book project, Making Telecoms Work – from technical innovation to commercial success with the international publishing house, John Wiley and Sons.

These projects are part of on-going fund raising initiatives that also help to demonstrate the relevance of the Science Museum to present and future strategic decision making in the telecoms industry.
Join us for NEXT25 to hear about the new book, to learn about follow on projects and to get an update on progress with the gallery.
