Monday 27th February, 2012

9:30am to 11:00am (WET)

While the mobile industry remains robust despite a turbulent global economic climate, the world’s mobile operators face many critical issues which will define the future growth of the industry.  Perhaps one of the most pressing is how to balance the need for continued investment in growth opportunities and the challenges presented by a competitive marketplace, limited spectrum resources and highly discerning customers.

The plethora of mobile connected devices and new services in the market today provide a tantalising glimpse into the future of mobile, but much still needs to be done in order to deliver on the promise. This session will explore a range of issues such as: How can operators continue to evolve their business models as disruptive services challenge the status quo of traditional revenue streams? What opportunities does the entry of mobile technology into new verticals provide operators with? How can operators remain at the forefront of the technology innovation that has made our industry one of the key growth drivers of the global economy?

Join the CEOs of the world’s leading operators as they discuss the strategies that are shaping the mobile industry today and well into the future.
