In presenting the Awards, Alan Burkitt-Gray, editor of Global Telecoms Business, commented: 
       
"This is the seventh time we've run our Innovation Awards and each year we've seen that the industry is working harder and harder to deliver exciting and innovative services to its customers worldwide. Congratulations to all the award winners. The industry is seeing a wave of innovation which is making a huge difference - to the companies working in the industry and to all of us in business and as consumers. They are making such a difference to the world. We want to celebrate what they are doing." 
       
Global Telecoms Business magazine, which is read by the industry leaders in the telecommunications industry worldwide, is part of the Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC group. 
       
The Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards were first presented in 2007, at a dinner attended by 160 industry leaders from around the world. Around 300 people attended the 2013 awards dinner. Guests at the ceremony include chief executive officers, chief technology officers and other leaders from operators and vendors throughout the world. 
       
Awards were for projects, not products, designed to celebrate collaboration between operators and vendors; and for each winning project a telecoms service provider and a supplier will come to the stage to collect a trophy.

The Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards dinner is sponsored by Genband, Huawei, IDT, Wipro and ZTE. The sponsors played no part in the selection of nominations or the final judging process.
