Bell Labs participated in presentations at the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) Centennial Celebration on May 11 in Washington, DC.
Over 650 guests including members of Congress, the administration, embassy and industry attended the event. Brian Hendricks, Head of Government Relations for the Americas Region stated, “We are very proud of Nokia’s participation at the Information Technology Industry Council Centennial Celebration.” Nokia was the premier sponsor of the ITI STEM Show and the ITI Tech Show. We showcased the power of the new Nokia and Nokia Bells Labs through Chris White’s presentation of the “Future Thought” project. We reached many underprivileged children with STEM interests while eclipsing the presence of other participating companies. We engaged high level officials including an FCC Commissioner, senior White House staff and members of Congress in conversations to voice our priorities in key areas of our patent rights and new spectrum allocations.
