VAS, DIGITAL & INNOVATIVE SERVICES
We have been organizing the Mobile VAS/ VAS event in Miami for many years, but we have been noticing that nowadays discussion is much broader than that and we decided to change the event’s focus to address mainly OTTs and operator service innovation and optimization, so operator revenue can still grow on this digital world we are living in. This summit combines educative content and real life experiences, assessing the state of the industry and identifying new areas of growth with an occasion for one to one interaction and networking.
