Peppermill Hosts International 5G Telecommunications Conference 

RENO, Nev. (November 15, 2019) – Over 1,500 of the leading Telecommunications engineers from all of the major cell phone companies across the globe will come together next week at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino. These professionals are meeting to continue their collaborative work on 3GPP and the varying aspects of cellular standards that they are responsible for setting on behalf of their companies worldwide as they continue to work on the rollout of 5G.

5G is the next generation of cell phone technology putting faster speeds and more advanced technology into the hands of every cell phone user, and will have an impact on almost every aspect of our lives in one form or another. Most industries will benefit, be it anything from self-driving cars, to advanced technology in farming, to simply a longer battery life in your own personal cell phone.

Suzanne Schlanger, Managing Director of The SK Group, said choosing chose Reno as their meeting location was simple. “With all the new and exciting things going on in Reno now, and companies like Google and Apple moving in, Reno is very much an up-and-coming city, and the perfect setting for these Telecommunications engineers to continue their work on the varying aspects of cellular standards.”

The SK Group has been holding conferences at the Peppermill since 2016.
