Defining the New Telecoms Landscape in Africa
MVNOs Industry Summit Africa is back in 2014 to reveal facts and latest experiences about what it takes for the MVNO market on the African continent to finally flourish, while overcoming regulatory and low ARPU challenges but also going beyond that to succeed – deploying social media, mobile money, new partnership models and other innovative services.
Despite a rather idle MVNO environment in Africa, the talks of upcoming MVNO launches, new regulations and infrastructure upgrades, which would pave the way for new MVNOs in key African markets, are bubbling beneath the surface. The recent deal, creating a new MVNE in South Africa, made by Cell C, Mirage Telecoms and Comverse, is a strong sign of changes on the upside in the African MVNO market. If most of the plans talked about do see the light of day, not only will they be discovered and explored in detail at #MVNOIS Africa 2014, but they will boost further interest in Africa for potential MVNOs, international operators, banks, retailers, brands, VAS providers. At AfricaCom 2013, MVNOs were talked about as what “could be a key in increasing revenues for telecoms in Africa” (Mats Carrgard, Chief Commercial Officer, Virgin Mobile South Africa) and 2014 might just be the year in which we see this become reality.
With previous presentations from Cell C, Virgin Mobile, Orange Horizons, K2 Telecom and many other key players in Africa, topics discussed at the event in 2014 will include:
What are the next steps for MVNOs in Africa? What are the alternative solutions when the regulatory framework is reluctant to pave the way for MVNOs? Who has done what, and which lessons can they share, since the last MVNOs Industry Summit in Africa? Where are the opportunities arising?
NEW LOCATION! #MVNOIS Africa 2014 is moving from Capetown to Johannesburg, hosting more local telecommunications players at the event.
CO-LOCATION WITH VAS AFRICA! #MVNOIS Africa 2014 will share the plenary Day 1 morning Keynotes and networking areas with VAS Africa 2014, for extra benefits to attendees, speakers and sponsors.
MORE NETWORKING AND TIME TO TALK! More time for networking and small focus group sessions.
MORE LOCAL BEST PRACTICE! The latest case studies and new MVNO launches in Africa will be hosted.
MORE INTERNATIONAL BEST PRACTICE! International operators, regulators, and MVNOs will be invited to share the secrets of their own MVNO success to help African markets innovate and accelerate.
MORE OPTIONS AND ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR POTENTIAL MVNOS IN AFRICA! The summit in June 2014 will explore in greater detail the latest MVNO launches since the last convention, but also what potential MVNOs can do when the regulators and operators prove impossible to cooperate with.
Get ready to meet regional and International MVNOs, Prospective MVNOs, Retailers and Brand Agencies, MNOs, MVNAs, MVNEs, Regulators, Cable Operators, FMC and Quad Play Operators, Device Manufacturers (OEMS), Service Providers (Energy, Health, Automobile), VAS Providers, Content Providers, Internet Providers and Players, Processor Companies, Browsers, Chipset Companies, Developers, Systems Integrators, Design Consultants, OS Platforms, Industry Associations and Press.
