MEF Connects Thailand in association with Telenor will take place in Bangkok on May 13th.

An exclusive invite-only event for members and industry guests, join us at MEF Connects Thailand, in association with Telenor and supported by Mono Group and TIMWE. With a packed agenda featuring a keynote presentation from Sigve Brekke, EVP & Head of Asia at Telenor, an expert panel session moderated by local media partner e27 and five startup pitches from some of Thailand’s hottest innovators, MEF Connects Thailand is the opportunity to engage with both local and global MEF members as well as industry guests from key regional MNOs, content owners and service providers.

Panel Session: How innovation is driving local connectivity.

The evening will include a panel discussion featuring Thawatvongse Silamanonda, SVP International Business at Mono Technology and Karianne Melleby, Head of Digital Partnerships at Telenor Group and Jakob Lykkegaard, Co-Founder & CEO of Playlab – with other industry speakers to be announced, and moderated by Amarit Charoenphan, of Thai media partner e27.

Thailand is a social media nation (30 million Facebook accounts), and the second most instagrammed place in the world.  Although the country has only had 3G for two years, (there are more consumers in rural areas than urban), what grassroots innovation is  driving local connectivity and what insights can key stakeholders learn to adapt to their business?
