Successfully re-branding in 2013 after 15 years as the Mobile Financial Services & NFC Summit, the Mobile Wallet & Retail Innovation event returns in 2014 to explore in further detail the different models of mobile wallet being tried and tested, debating the importance of NFC, role of cloud payments and breaking down what the consumer really wants and most importantly, will spend from!
As the mobile wallet deepens, the two day agenda looks more closely at the many different aspects of mCommerce and how to bring complementary services to the wallet. Uniting retailers, mobile marketing and advertising experts, loyalty and couponing app developers, with traditional telco ecosystem players and those building the wallet infrastructure, the 2014 event promises to continue the lively discussion which kept delegates in the room in June 2013!Top Visit Event Website

NEW for 2014! Following the recognition by both telecom operators and OTT players that co-operation is better than competition, and leading on from the successful enablement of operator-OTT services by key technology partners, OTT-Operator Partnerships now forms a crucial part of the Digital Services World Congress show!
Bringing telcos together with content providers and internet players, we’re excited to look at these new business models and pinpoint how revenue opportunities can be advanced in the mobile internet world, for both operators and OTTs.
Identifying how MNOs are participating in the palpable OTT revenue growth, and forming partnerships with benefits, the one day agenda fits perfectly in the Digital Services World Congress, showing how partnerships are imperative to progression and development in the digital world.
Not only placing a magnifying glass on the partnerships being nurtured, but exploring how MNOs are venturing into the OTT space with their own applications, the agenda brings live case studies exemplifying this new era of co-opetition! Scrutinizing the VAS which make up the backbone of operators’ digital services propositions, best practice is shared by operator and OTT speakers on building partnerships to monetise and enhance music, video, gaming, cloud, SaaS and M2M product offerings.Top
