Kansas Conference: 17-18 Oct 2018

RAG's first conference in North America will address the risks and assurance challenges not covered by other events



Sprint will host RAG’s October 2018 conference at their campus in Overland Park, near Kansas City. This will be the first time that RAG has run an event in the USA!

As with all RAG conferences, telcos and regulators are welcome to attend for free.

New information will be regularly added to this page, so keep returning for updates. Alternatively, you can join RAG and receive our regular e-newsletters, which tell you when new speakers are added to the conference agenda, and also share news about global developments in telecoms risk and assurance.



Unlike other conferences, RAG avoids promising speakers until we are sure they will take part, so we use the web to communicate the very latest version of the agenda, which is updated as soon as each new speaker is confirmed. Look below for the draft agenda or click this link to open it in a new window.


Location, Evening Entertainment and Hotels

The conference will be held at the headquarters of Sprint in Overland Park, in the Kansas City metro area. The address is:

6200 Sprint Parkway
Overland Park
Kansas 66251

A map of Sprint’s campus is shown below.

We will provide advice about local hotels in due course.

Complimentary lunch and refreshments are included in all RAG conferences, and we also intend to offer free food at networking events on both evenings. Further details will be given when they have been confirmed.



We know that some telco managers like to see a printed brochure before they agree to approve the travel costs to attend our free conferences. This can make life difficult for RAG because our events involve lots of speakers, and new ones keep being added! However, we will add a downloadable and printable PDF brochure to this site in due course.

RAG always adds speakers right up to the week before the conference, so be sure to keep checking the agenda on this web page for the most accurate and comprehensive rundown of speakers.

Attendance Options for Sponsors and Invited Guests

Sponsoring businesses may send their representatives to RAG Kansas. RAG receives ongoing support from several market-leading suppliers, but there are also opportunities to sponsor individual conferences. If your business is interested in participating in RAG Kansas then please make your initial query through our contact form.

RAG allocates a limited number of complimentary seats for freelance consultants, subject matter experts, and other industry leaders. To maintain a balanced audience, these seats will only be made available to specific named individuals. Invitations will be emailed in due course. If you wish to be added to the guest list you should contact a member of the RAG Committee, or else ask for advice from a relevant representative of Sprint’s host team or one of the conference sponsors.

One of the most important aspects of our conferences is what we call the ‘RAG Spirit’. We want attendees to feel relaxed and have the freedom to talk openly about the challenges they face. To protect the RAG Spirit, we reserve the right to decide who may attend on a case-by-case basis.
