2023 Rural Wireless Infrastructure Summit (RWIS)

June 26 – 28, 2023
Grand Summit Resort
Park City, Utah

Just over a year ago, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act became law and $42B is set to be spent on broadband infrastructure in the next 10 years. The FCC’s Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement Program process with $1.9B (potentially more if Congress fully funds it) is also beginning to be distributed. More funding is being awarded by USDA through the Reconnect Program and an additional $1.5B for 5G and Open RAN is available through the CHIPS and Science Act.

A full array of timely infrastructure topics will be pressing issues come June 2023, including:

  • The FCC’s Reimbursement Program process, nearing the one-year date from initial funding allocations;
  • The implementation of the BEAD program by states, who will have already received their planning grant funds to invest into their broadband offices;
  • The challenges faced by the Broadband Data Collection mapping, which should have its next map iteration published by the Summit;
  • The steady movement towards increased cybersecurity regulations by various federal agencies;
  • CBRS;
  • Tower regulation;
  • 6G in rural America;
  • And so much more!

If you want to be first in line for this influx of groundbreaking information join Rural Wireless Association and RINA Wireless members for the 2023 Rural Wireless Infrastructure Summit in Park City, Utah on June 26-28.

By popular demand, the Summit 2023 will remain at the Grand Summit Hotel in Park City, UT. Attendance will remain limited to no more than 300 attendees to foster outstanding networking and further strengthen the rural wireless community.

What 2022 Attendees Had to Say

“Such a beautiful place and nice to go to a conference where 95% of the content was relevant and the days were full and went fast. Little to no ‘fluff’ or wasted time overall. Very organized and well thought out. Not many meetings that have all of the sitting FCC Commissioners as presenters. Well worth my time to attend this Summit and glad I was able to have staff there as well. Bravo!”

“Good diverse mix of operators, vendors, and associations. Good speaker panels that were informative.”

“Great content and location…I felt like the combination of RINA/RWA was an excellent mix of content and people brought to the meeting. The speakers and content were not the same as most industry events small rural carriers attend, and that was refreshing.  I would attend again if in the same location with a similar format.”

“Liked the intimacy and it was perfect amount of time.”

“Great gathering of wireline and wireless Operators.  Great networking event.”

“Absolutely loved the event and can’t wait for next year! The ability to have face to face time with everyone, meet many that normally is only by phone, and have the ability to learn from each other was invaluable!”

“Overall I felt this was a fantastic event.  Very educational and excellent networking opportunities.”

“Excellent event, very well organized. Great balance between professional content and opportunities for networking. Location is incredible. Nature at its best creates a different feeling vs other events, more relaxing. It was great to meet so many interesting people and listen to so relevant content. Really worth it, willing to repeat next year!”

“I absolutely loved the event and could not be happier. Simply stated, it was a huge benefit for me and our company and look forward to next year!”
