Witness the transformative potential of mobile at Mobile 360 – MENA

Digital technologies and services are profoundly transforming the lives of citizens throughout the MENA region. They are fuelling economic growth, making businesses more efficient and effective, and helping policymakers pursue their objectives. Mobile connectivity is at the heart of this new digital era.

Now in its 5th year, Mobile 360 – MENA will enable you to witness the transformative potential of mobile in this region for yourself, featuring an unparalleled speaker roster and balanced agenda with essential perspectives from across the ecosystem, including operators, governments, brands and verticals.

A number of countries in the MENA region are attracting global attention for their rapid uptake of digital services. Amman in Jordan has been labelled as one of the best cities in the world in which to launch a tech start-up; Turkey’s position between East and West makes it fertile ground for start-ups, particularly in the e-commerce space; and Iran has plans to become a regional digital leader following the lifting of international economic sanctions. Meanwhile mobile operators in the GCC markets (Dubai in the UAE for example), are launching advanced services around initiatives such as smart cities, the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital identity.

In light of these fast-moving market developments, we are excited to premiere a brand new set of topics this year including:

  • Smart Cities and Connected Cars
  • Regulatory Modernisation
  • Cybersecurity
  • Digital Transformation and Customer Experience
  • Social Video Networks for Communication, Media and Political Change
  • 5G
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Digital identity and the Blockchain
  • Financial Inclusion and Mobile-Commerce
  • Disaster Response to Humanitarian Crises
  • North Africa Regional Focus

Join us in Dubai and be part of the conversation with the rapidly expanding mobile ecosystem at the only official GSMA event targeted towards the entire MENA region. Stay tuned, speakers will be announced soon!
