“With a population of 1.4 billion, c. 18% of the world’s total population, and a huge, growing online presence, India is a vast market for Business Messaging. There is huge headroom for growth too and it was fantastic to see so many stakeholders active across the Messaging world in India with us in one room to discuss all the relevant issues. India leads the way in how it has employed blockchain technology to help (ultimately) protect consumers across the nation from the scourge of SMS spam and fraud. Interest from India in MEF continues to grow.
It is a pleasure welcoming the stream of Indian companies continuing to join the fast-growing MEF community. With 200+ members globally now, we provide the neutral platform stakeholders from across the ecosystem can join to collaborate and develop the Messaging market in a sustainable way that protects consumers every step of the way. Thanks to Globe Teleservices for embracing all MEF has to offer and for continuing to support the event in India in such a committed manner. “
