MEF once again takes centre stage at MWC for its Members, with the Future of Mobile Summit 2024.

In a 150 pax auditorium in Hall 8 Theatre 3 at the Fira, we will bring you must-see Sessions covering wide-spectrum topics such as AI, Authentication, Automations, and AIT.

We begin with a Welcome Address by Dario Betti, CEO of MEF to ignite the journey into the Future of Mobile followed by a Headliner Keynote by Ofir Eyal, CEO at Rakuten Viber.

Sessions to follow include: XConnect with a panel debating “2FA – Where’s the money going?“:

We have seen the impact of AIT on SMS 2FA revenues, but the market still needs secure authentication… so what are the options, and is SMS 2FA really on its way out? This needs to work for the brands, the application providers, the service providers, and the end user… how should the ecosystem respond?”

Explore global trade through mobile in the session ‘Connectivity & Commerce: Accelerating global trade through mobile by the Department of Business & Trade with surprise guests.

Join in the discussion of “Future of messaging: what are the next game-changers?” by Rakuten Viber:

Super Apps, AI, voice search, extended reality – every year, more trends emerge in the tech industry. Which ones are game-changers, and which are merely temporary buzzwords? This panel of experts will delve into both existing and emerging tendencies and technologies that influence the messaging industry. They will seek to answer the question: what will shape the messaging landscape of tomorrow and how?”
