Focus on New Countries Opening up to MVNOs

Friendi/Virgin Mobile Middle East and Africa's CEO kicked the event off in style in 2012, with a keynote on the regional opportunity. Egypt announced further de-regulation and licence extensions in late 2012.
MVNO Industry Summit Middle East 2013 capitalises on these changes and assesses the ongoing readiness of a wholesale market which after initially opening up to MVNOs resumed a more cautious relationship with third party telcos.
International best practice case studies will be showcased and analyst insight of local MVNO and wholesale landscapes will be delivered.
MVNO Industry Summit Middle East is co-located with the 17th Prestigious Middle East Telco World Summit, offering fantastic business and networking opportunities under one roof.
2013 continues our theme of supporting on site introductions, business wish lists, and acting as industry catalyst for MVNO regional business development.

We look forward to welcoming you to Dubai!
